The Titans claimed outside linebacker Gimel President off waivers Tuesday.
The Texans waived him Monday.
President played four games last season, making three tackles. He spent most of the year on the practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois.
Police indicted Patricia and Greg Dietrich on charges of sexual assault. However, neither was convicted after the woman stopped cooperating with investigators.
I was innocent then, and I am innocent now. I was falsely accused of something I did not do, Patricia said.
Patricia never disclosed the incident to any of his NFL employers. He spent the last 14 seasons as an assistant coach with the New England Patriots, including the last six as their defensive coordinator. The Lions hired him to replace Jim Caldwell as their head coach in February.
Patricia told reporters he didn’t discuss the matter because it never came up in interviews.
Since the draft moved to seven rounds in 1993, the Vikings have selected one other kicker: Blair Walsh, in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. Walsh held the job (and earned a contract extension) until a missed chip-shot in the 2015 postseason followed by a protracted slump to start the 2016 campaign.
The 25-year-old is coming off a 112-catch, nine-touchdown season and is worth a lot more than the fourth- and seventh-round selections Cleveland sent Miami’s way.
Landry is expensive even after ditching the franchise tag in exchange for a long-term deal, but after saving for a rainy day for a half-decade the Browns have money to burn. Landry’s contract won’t cost them the ability to make big financial splashes in the years to come, and it’s highly unlikely a team that has picked 25 players in the first three rounds of the last five drafts will regret giving up those two Day 3 selections in the trade.
He might not have been the Colts’ first choice, but don’t be surprised if the Colts eventually thank the football gods that they were spurned by Josh McDaniels in the eleventh hour of their search for a new head coach.
