NASHVILLE (AP) — Former Minnesota Vikings guard Chris DeGeare is filling the final spot on the Tennessee Titans’ eight-man practice squad.
DeGeare, a fifth-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft from Wake Forest, joins the Titans after getting waived by the Vikings last week.
DeGeare played eight games and made five starts for the Vikings as a rookie but spent all of last season on their practice squad.
The 6-foot-4, 335-pound DeGreare started three seasons at Wake Forest and alternated between tackle and guard.
