NFL Free Agency: Titans Add Second Offensive Lineman, Commanders Guard Saahdiq Charles

The reconstruction of the Tennessee Titans offensive line continues. Washington Commanders guard Saahdiq Charles, 24, became a starter in 2023, but his four years in the NFL have been limited by injuries.

NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Titans signed their fifth new player of the 2024 free-agent cycle. 

Former Washington Commanders offensive lineman Saahdiq Charles reportedly has agreed to a one-year deal with a max of $2.5 million. The Athletic's Dianna Russini was the first to report the signing. 

Charles and new center Lloyd Cushenberry, who also signed with the Titans this week, played college football together at LSU.

Charles, 24, a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, became a starter last season but missed six games with a calf injury. He has played just 35 games in four seasons due to injuries.

According to Pro Football Focus, Charles allowed four sacks and 37 quarterback pressures on 643 snaps last season. 

This week, the Titans also have signed running back Tony Pollard, cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, and linebacker Kenneth Murray.

  • NEW CENTER LLOYD CUSHENBERRY: The Tennessee Titans reportedly will sign Denver Broncos free agent Lloyd Cushenberry, who is expected to pass protection up the middle for quarterback Will Levis. Cushenberry, who is 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, allowed only one sack in 2023. CLICK HERE
  • NEW CORNERBACK CHIDOBE AWUZIE: Chidobe Awuzie, 28, spent three seasons in Cincinnati, where Titans coach Brian Callahan was offensive coordinator. Pro Football Focus ranked Awuzie as the fourth-best free-agent cornerback available. CLICK HERE
  • DERRICK HENRY HAD TO GO: The Titans roster has so many holes to fill that re-signing a 30-year-old running back — even one coming off a fourth Pro Bowl season — would have been economically imprudent. CLICK HERE
