Titans don't rest on day off, add a pair of players on offense

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 11:12pm

Wednesday was a day off for the Tennessee Titans, but two new players were added to the roster.

Tight end Joey Haynos and wide receiver Marcus Harris signed and added to the depth on offense.

Haynos, a sizable target at 6-foot-8, 270 pounds, caught 21 passes for 184 yards and three touchdowns in 23 appearances for the Miami Dolphins in 2009 and 2010. He spent all of last season on injured reserve with a foot injury. The University of Maryland product entered the NFL in 2008 as an undrafted free agent with Green Bay.

Harris is Murray State’s all-time leading receiver. He caught 216 passes for 2,471 yards with 21 touchdowns in his college career, which included a 2010 second-team All-American honor from the Associated Press. He signed with Detroit as an undrafted free agent last year and spent part of the season on the Lions’ practice squad.

Haynos becomes the sixth tight end on the roster. Harris joins a group of wide receivers that has been without Kenny Britt (knee injury) and Kendall Wright (contract talks), not to mention O.J. Murdock, who did not report to camp and committed suicide Monday morning in Tampa.

Wright, the team’s first-round draft pick, signed his contract Wednesday and will practice with the team for the first time Thursday.
