Scott Picked Up by Titans

Texas safety Christian Scott wowed NFL scouts with his athleticism at the Texas Pro Day. Sunday, it paid off when Scott signed a free agent deal with the Tennessee Titans.

Scott played in 34 career games, including 14 starts at safety when he recorded 89 tackles (62 solo), two tackles for loss, eight passes broken up, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception during his career.

He recorded 21 tackles, one tackle for loss, one caused fumble, one fumble recovery, four pass breakups and one pressure in 2011 and also underwent wrist surgery, causing him to miss the 2011 Holiday Bowl. He started 10 games in 2010, making 53 stops and recording his lone career interception. He was a physical player who was always known as one of the Longhorns' biggest hitters.

"Christian Scott had a lot of adversity while he was here and last year even played with a broken wrist throughout the year," said Texas coach Mack Brown. "He's a tremendous special teams player but also can be a great safety. I think Christian Scott is a make-it guy in the NFL and can have a great future on special teams and at safety."
