Tennessee Titans Release Shyheim Carter
Former Alabama defensive back Shyheim Carter is one of four players released by the Tennessee Titans Monday due to an undisclosed injury.
Carter was a four-star prospect in the 2016 recruiting class and was ranked 40th in the ESPN 300. Carter committed to Alabama in 2016. He played in 50 games and started in 23 during his four years at Alabama. During those four years, he had a total of 101 tackles and 3 interceptions.
Carter was not drafted in the 2020 draft. He signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent but was released just before the 2020 regular season, and spent the remainder of the season as a member of the Atlanta Falcons practice squad. The Houston Texans then signed Carter in May of 2021 after a successful rookie minicamp tryout, but in October of that year he was released.
After being released by the Texans, Carter spent some time with the Titans as part of their practice squad and as a graduate assistant coach at Alabama. Carter got another chance when the Tennessee Titans signed him this past January to a reserve/futures contract.
In the Titans first preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, Carter had a total of three tackles and one fumble recovery, but did not play in the Titans second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Tennessee Titans, who need to have their roster to 80 players to meet the Tuesday 3 p.m. CST deadline, released Carter along with receiver Terry Godwin, linebacker Justin Lawler, and defensive back Shakur Brown.
Carter now faces the possibility of missing the 2022 regular season as he will be on the injured reserve list unless he is claimed by another team.
