The Tennessee Titans have released wide receiver Adam Humphries, an expected move that will save more than $4 million against the salary cap in 2021.

Humphries, 27, ended up playing two injury-plagued seasons after signing a four-year contract with the Titans prior to the 2019 season. He appeared in 19 regular-season games for Tennessee and only seven this past season because of a concussion suffered on a big hit against the Cincinnati Bengals.

He never reached 100 receiving yards in a game for the Titans, and the most memorable moment of his Tennessee tenure will be a game-winning touchdown catch in 2019 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was one of only four Titans TDs for Humphries.

The Titans also announced Thursday that they had cut defensive backs Chris Milton and Breon Borders. After joining the Titans' practice squad earlier in the season, Borders started five games in 2020 as the cornerback opposite Malcolm Butler before being sidelined by an injury.

Meanwhile, defensive lineman Jullian Taylor, 26, has signed with the Titans. A seventh-round pick out of Temple University in 2018, Taylor worked through injuries while playing 12 games for the San Francisco 49ers the past three years, totaling 16 tackles.
