Titans to sign TE Visanthe Shiancoe

Win McNamee

The Titans are banged up at tight end, so they are looking elsewhere for reserves.

Tennessee Titans tight ends Delanie Walker and Craig Stevens are both battling concussions. The two were injured in the Titans' loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The head injuries have forced the team add a veteran to the roster. Tennessee agreed to terms with former Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants tight end Visanthe Shiancoe on Tuesday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Shiancoe was part of the Baltimore Ravens' training camp this past summer, but was released in August. He has been off the NFL radar ever since. The 11-year veteran has suited for the Giants, Vikings and New England Patriots over the course of his career. He played for New England in 2012, but only appeared in four games and failed to register any statistics.

The Titans have suffered a rash of injuries to their offense this season, but are still just a game behind or tied with most of the AFC's wild card competition. Tennessee will face a tough test against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
