The Tennessee Titans have released veteran defensive tackle Shaun Smith after just one season with the club, according to TitanInsider.com.

Smith signed a three-year, $7.5 million deal just after the lockout ended last year, but had only one sack and 44 tackles a year ago for the Titans as youngsters like Karl Klug and Jurrell Casey eventually passed him in the defensive tackle rotation.

By cutting Smith, the Titans save a net of $1.25 million in cap space.
