Today the Tennessee Titans announced that they would be parting ways with an offensive lineman who got shot over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos added a running back and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have suffered an injury setback with defensive end Jacquies Smith. Finally, the Mychal Kendricks revealed that he requested a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Titans waive Tretola

The Tennessee Titans have waived offensive guard Sebastian Tretola, five days after he suffered a minor gunshot wound to the leg. Tretola was already on thin ice, as he and receiver Tajae Sharpe were accused of assaulting a man outside a Nashville bar back in April.

Neither player has yet to be charged in the incident, with the case being investigated as a civil matter.

He was drafted in the sixth-round last year out of Arkansas and only played in one game. To take Tretola's place on the roster the team added veteran linebacker, Erik Walden. Last season with the Colts, the 31-year-old started all 16 games. He had 31 tackles, 11 sacks, and three forced fumbles.

Broncos added former Patriot Ridley

The Denver Broncos have agreed to a one-year deal with former Patriots running back Stevan Ridley. This signing comes in the wake of yesterday's news that Devontae Booker will miss at least six weeks due to a fracture in his wrist that requires surgery. Last season Ridley only played one game with the Atlanta Falcons.

His career has gone downhill since his 1,263 yards, 12 touchdown campaign with the Patriots in 2012 due to fumbling issues and injury.

Smith suffers injury setback

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that Jacquies Smith has suffered an unfortunate setback in his recovery from a torn ACL in his right knee.

Smith has now been put on the PUP list to start training camp and is going to have a small procedure done on his knee today. He suffered the injury in week one of last season against the Falcons. Prior to the injury, Smith was one of the team's best pass rushers recording 13.5 sacks in his first two seasons in the NFL.

Kendricks reveals trade request

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks revealed today that he request a trade from the team earlier this offseason, but was denied by the front office. Last season, Kendricks only played on 27% of the team's defensive snaps. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's scheme does not use a lot of blitzing by linebackers, which is Kendricks's specialty. He only recorded 28 tackles and zero sacks, whereas the prior three seasons he recorded an average of 92 tackles and three sacks.
