NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Titans waived defensive tackle Tony Brown , running back Dominique Lindsay, defensive ends Marcus Howard and Kareem Brown and offensive lineman Jeff Hansen.
Brown's agents said Brown failed a physical and the team notified him Thursday that they planned to release him.
The team released a statement saying: "… his body just hasn't allowed him to play like he has in the past despite his best efforts."
Brown has spent the past five seasons with the Titans and had signed a three-year contract extension worth $17 million before last season began. In 11 games last fall, Brown had 35 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
He was hampered by a right knee injury and had arthroscopic knee surgery in December. He was expected to be fully recovered by now.
He has 154 tackles, 19 sacks, five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles in 219 games over six seasons.
The Titans also released quarterback Vince Young.
