NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Veteran kicker Ryan Succop has agreed to a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans who chose to go with experience rather than an undrafted rookie.
Agent Joel Turner said Monday that Succop is happy with a "very good opportunity in a fine organization."
The Titans had no immediate comment.
The Chiefs released Succop on Saturday, going with an undrafted option at kicker. Succop, 27, hit 81 percent of his field goals over his past five seasons and his career-long is 54 yards. He has spent the past five seasons with the Chiefs who drafted him with the final pick of the 2009 draft.
Tennessee opens at Kansas City on Sunday. The Titans had kept Travis Coons out of Washington over Maikon Bonani in the final cuts.
