The Tennessee Titans have released veteran defensive tackle Shaun Smith a year after signing him to boost their defense.

The Titans signed Smith in July 2011 hoping to bring his experience and size to the defense. But Smith started only six of 15 games last season with 44 tackles and one sack, and the Titans have picked four tackles in the past two drafts.

Smith lost weight this offseason yet had only one tackle in two preseason games. The eight-year veteran tweeted Wednesday morning that it was time to see what team he will be with next and that he should have made better ''life decisions.''
