Titans' time at top of the waiver wire is over

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans' 202-day reign at the top of the waiver wire ends Tuesday.

The worst team in the league from the prior season holds the top waiver claim through the third week of the following season.

Now the order shifts to what the draft order would be based on this season's results. The teams with the worst records get first claim, and ties between them are broken by strength of schedule -- a lesser mark in that category means a higher claim.

The Titans used the claim six times:

  • On linebacker Nate Palmer from Green Bay on April 11.

  • On tight end Jerome Cunningham from the Jets on May 25.

  • On cornerback Tyler Patmon from Miami on Aug. 1.

  • On linebacker Amarlo Herrera from Indianapolis Aug. 12.

  • On tight end Jace Amaro from the Jets on Sept. 4.

  • On guard Josh Kline from New England on Sept. 8.

Palmer, Amaro and Kline are on the roster.

Kline is now the starting right guard after a Week 2 injury to Chance Warmack. Amaro stepped in for the injured Delanie Walker against Oakland and caught three passes for a team-high 59 yards. Palmer has played in all three games, and is tied for third in special teams tackles with three.
