CB - FA
According to Terry McCormick, Buster Skrine informed the Titans that he is retiring from the NFL.
Buster Skrine came into the NFL as a fifth-round selection by the Cleveland Browns, where he spent the first four years of his career. Skrine also went on to play for the New York Jets and Chicago Bears before hitting his last stop in Tennessee with the Titans. Skrine recorded 590 tackles, 88 pass breakups, and 10 interceptions throughout his 11 years in the league. Skrine was likely going to be the team's fifth corner, so the Titans will now have to look for a player to fill the void on the depth chart.
Buster Skrine and the Browns are unlikely to get a contract done before free agency opens this Tuesday.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Browns would like Skrine back, but that may not be a possibility at this point. The Browns would need Justin Gilbert to prove he's not a bust in a hurry next season if Skrine ends up elsewhere.
