NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have started free agency by waiving safety Jordan Babineaux and guard Mitch Petrus.
The Titans announced the moves Tuesday afternoon just after NFL free agency began.
Babineaux had signed a 2-year deal in March 2012 after joining the Titans just after the NFL lockout ended for the 2011 season. The safety played in all 16 games but started only 12. He was due to earn $1.6 million this season but became expendable when the Titans signed George Wilson last month.
Petrus was signed when the Titans' offensive line was hit by injuries late last season and played in two games with one start.
