    Titans release safety Schulters

    NFL.com wire reports

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 16, 2005) -- The Tennessee Titans released safety Lance Schulters shortly after failing to reach agreement on a new salary cap-friendly deal.

    The Titans, who cut six high-priced veterans in February, had been expected to release the seven-year veteran in their attempt to rebuild and free up enough salary-cap space to build up other weak areas this season.

    Schulters was paid a roster bonus in March. Team officials and agent Brian Levy made one last attempt at finding a price both could agree earlier this week.

    "We floated some ideas back and forth," Levy said. "I don't think either of us felt comfortable with the other's ideas. So we just felt it would be best at this time we parted ways amicably. We've accomplished that."

    Schulters revived the Tennessee defense when signed as a free agent in 2002 after beginning his career in San Francisco. He didn't miss a start until injuring his left foot in the third game last year and missed the rest of the season.

    Schulters has 5 sacks and 15 interceptions in his career, and he had 192 tackles and six interceptions in his three seasons with the Titans.

    Titans to release safety Schulters
    By Adam Schefter
    Special to NFL.com

    (June 16, 2005) -- After failing to come to a contract agreement, the Tennessee Titans will release safety Lance Schulters, the safety's agent, Brian Levy, confirmed.

    But Schulters is not expected to be out of work long. Schulters' former head coach in San Francisco, Steve Mariucci, now coaches in Detroit, a team that needs a safety. Schulters' former defensive coordinator in San Francisco, Jim Mora, now coaches in Atlanta, another team that needs a safety. And teams such as San Francisco, the New York Jets, St. Louis Rams and Green Bay Packers also could make a run at Schulters.

    Levy said he did not expect his client to remain on the free-agent market very long.

    Levy and Schulters had submitted a final restructured contract proposal to the Titans on June 15 and the team took 24 hours to consider it. But in the end, the Titans opted against it, deciding to release Schulters, who was scheduled to make $2.75 million in base salary with a $4.2 million salary-cap charge.

    Schulters spent three seasons in Tennessee and was a regular starter at free safety before suffering a foot injury last season that forced him to miss 13 games.

    Wow, this could be an awesome pick-up for the Rams. I hope they seriously consider it and don't just make a token offer.
