The Tennessee Titans have released veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks among their moves in trimming their roster to the NFL’s 53-man limit.

The Titans announced their final moves Saturday.

They had signed Nicks to a one-year contract, and this move leaves Tennessee with four receivers with Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas, Justin Hunter and rookie Dorial Green-Beckham. They also kept five tight ends with Chase Coffman and Phillip Supernaw on the roster for now.

Tennessee also waived offensive linemen Byron Stingily, Josue Matias and Will Poehls; wide receivers Tre McBride, Rico Richardson and Jacoby Ford; quarterback Alex Tanney; and running back David Fluellen.

The Titans also placed linebackers Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) and J.R. Tavai (knee) and Yawin Smallwood on injured reserve.
