NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans claimed tight end Jace Amaro off waivers from the New York Jets on Sunday and waived defensive lineman Medhi Abdesmad.

Amaro, a 2014 second-round pick from Texas Tech, caught 38 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season. He was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury during the preseason last year.

The Titans announced Sunday that they had signed tight end Jerome Cunningham, running back David Fluellen, offensive tackle Tyler Marz, center Ronald Patrick, cornerback Kalan Reed, defensive back Curtis Riley, wide receiver Ben Roberts, linebacker Justin Staples and nose tackle Antwuan Woods to their practice squad. All nine were with the team in training camp.
