Tennessee Titans release quarterback Tyler Wilson

Last offseason there was talk that Tyler Wilson could win the Oakland Raiders' starting-quarterback job. He's been cut twice since then.

The Tennessee Titans released Wilson on Wednesday, the team announced.

The Raiders selected Wilson in the fourth round of the 2013 draft. After early rave reviews, Wilson's world came crashing down. He was cut by Oakland before the season started -- after failing to beat out undrafted rookie Matt McGloin -- leaving general manager Reggie McKenzie roundly scolded for wasting a mid-round pick.

Once again Wilson had a poor camp, this time with the Titans, where he was battling for a roster spot with rookie Zach Mettenberger.

The hyped former Arkansas star isn't likely to get another shot at making an NFL roster after the two poor showings.

The Titans also announced they agreed to terms with tight end Chase Coffman and defensive lineman Lanier Coleman. In addition, the team placed tight end Dorin Dickerson on injured reserve.
