Matt Dickerson wasn’t gone long.

The Tennessee Titans re-signed the second-year defensive lineman Tuesday, three days after they released him. To make room on the roster, outside linebacker Derick Roberson, promoted from the practice squad on Saturday, was released.

Dickerson (6-foot-5, 292 pounds) played in two of this season’s first six games. He registered a tackle on Oct. 6 against Buffalo and a quarterback pressure on Sept. 15 against Indianapolis.

His release, one of multiple moves that included first-round draft pick Jeffery Simmons being added to the active roster, was a first for his career. An undrafted free agent, Dickerson (pictured) spent all of 2018 on the active roster but appeared in just three games and registered three tackles.

Roberson, an undrafted rookie out of Sam Houston State, was inactive for Sunday’s victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. His NFL debut will have to wait.

The Titans (3-4) host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-4) on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
