Preston has been a bit of a fan favorite here the past couple years, so figured it's worth posting.

Quote:
The Titans have signed linebacker Zac Diles to the team’s 53-man roster.

Diles, a six-year NFL veteran, spent last season with the Titans, but he was injured and placed on Injured Reserve in October. He played in six games, with one start.

The Titans are thin at linebacker following a rash of injuries in recent weeks.

Colin McCarthy will start at middle linebacker on Sunday against the 49ers after Moise Fokou was injured against Seattle.

The Titans waived receiver Michael Preston to make room for Diles.

honestly kinda disappointed about this. Preston is a good player to have.

We should've cut Fitzpatrick because he sucks

Very disappointed. Preston has a ton of potential. I wish we would've gotten him on the field more to show what he can do.

Disappointed Preston was let go, but I'm hoping to see him back on the PS. We need the depth at LB though with Bailey, Fokou and Gooden all hurt.

Preston had more snaps than Hunter did on last Sunday so this is kind of surprising.

On the bright side this moves Hunter up to 4th on our depth chart and hopefully we will get so see some more of him.

Damn, this is kind of bittersweet for me. I hate losing Preston, but I like picking up Zac Diles because I didn't want to cut him in the first place. I hope we re-sign Preston to the PS. I get a haunting feeling that some other teams, who are hurting for WR depth, will be looking to snatch him up.

Not happy, I liked Preston.

With this move, I feel it all but assures that Britt remains with us through the end of the season, unless a REAL good offer appears for him. Can't see us cutting one wide receiver only to trade another one as well.

I'd be shocked if no one picked him up.

Non-story.

Preston was insignificant. Everybody wants to gravitate to an underdog and root for them, I get that. However Preston was just a 5th WR. Not a special diamond in the rough, just a regular #5 on anybody's roster. Capable of special teams play and possibly a once in a while splash play, but most likely just 1 or 2 catches in the handful of games per season that they are even active (even those usually being due to injury at the position).

My Opinion

Good luck to him, perhaps he finds more opportunity elsewhere, more likely he'll end up on the PS. Or maybe he'll wind up back on the roster when Locker's healthy and they nix Rusty again.

Hate to see Preston cut, but they had to make the move. Hopefully he can be resigned to PS.

AWESOME!!! Now let's hope we can hang on to him for next season if Britt's gone.
