The Tennessee Titans have parted ways with their 2015 third-round pick.
John Glennon of The Tennessean tweeted out that the Titans are parting with offensive tackle Jeremiah Poutasi.
#Titans have released OL Jeremiah Poutasi, third-round pick last year.

Jim Wyatt from Titans online took note that Poutasi played in 92 percent of the snaps in Tennessee’s final preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.
He started seven games for the Titans last year after being selected out of the University of Utah.
Their 2015 draft class is not turning out to be a gem.
According the Nashville Post, nearly half of that class no longer plays for the Titans. Sixth-round picks Andy Gallik, an offensive lineman, and outside linebacker Deiontrez Mount were cut on Sunday.
Fifth-round pick running back David Cobb was released on Tuesday and wide receiver Dorial-Green Beckham was traded earlier in the summer. With no Poutasi now, only four of the nine picks are on the roster.
Hopefully they’ll have one saving grace from the class, first-round pick Marcus Mariota at quarterback. He showed some potential when he was healthy last season.
The Titans have gone to great lengths to improve their running game, adding Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry and 2014 NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray.
They hope that this will keep the pressure off their first-round investment both mentally and physically.
