The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent cornerback Antwon Blake on a one-year contract.

Blake (5-9, 198), who is entering his fifth NFL season, joins the Titans after three years with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  He launched his NFL career in 2012 as an undrafted free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and in 2013, the Steelers claimed him off waivers.  During his time in the Steel City, he accumulated 17 starts, 109 tackles, three interceptions, 18 passes defensed, one sack, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.  Blake also has 34 career special teams tackles, including a team-high 13 with the Jaguars as a rookie.

In 2015, Blake was a full-time starter for the first time in his career.  In addition to notching 16 starts, he set personal bests with 74 tackles, two interceptions and 11 passes defensed in the regular season.  He also started both of Pittsburgh’s postseason games, registering two tackles and an interception.  

A native of Houston, Texas, Blake played four seasons and was a two-year starter at cornerback at the University of Texas at El Paso.
