The Tennessee Titans have released kicker Rob Bironas.

It was just a year ago that the Titans signed Bironas to a two-year deal worth $6.67 million. Now they save $3.125 million of that against the cap by cutting ties with the 36-year-old.

The Titans were allegedly concerned about the Bironas’ performance on kickoffs.

In a team released statement general manager Ruston Webster thanks Bironas for his nine seasons with the Titans.

“We want to thank Rob for his nine years of service to the Titans,” Webster said. “He has been an outstanding kicker and we appreciate him both for his contributions on the field and in our community.”

There should be a market for Bironas who was 25-of-29 last season. currently Bironas is fourth all time in accuracy making 85.7-percent of his kicks. Only Al Del Greco (1,060 points) has accounted for more points than Bironas (1,032) in the history of the Titans/Oilers organization.
