NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Tennessee Titans signed quarterback Tim Rattay on Wednesday and also claimed linebacker Gilbert Gardner off waivers from Indianapolis.
The Titans also signed free-agent offensive lineman Marques Ogden and fullback Jonathan Evans and waived defensive tackle Marcus White and undrafted rookies fullback Nic Luc and defensive tackle Adrian Haywood. Ogden is the younger brother of Baltimore left tackle Jonathan Ogden.
Tennessee carried only two quarterbacks on the roster in 2006 with veteran Kerry Collins backing up Vince Young, and Matt Mauck was on the practice squad. Collins re-signed with the Titans this offseason.

Rattay started 18 games with San Francisco and Tampa Bay, including playing in the final four games last season for the Buccaneers. His best season was in 2004 with nine starts when he threw for 2,169 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Gardner, a third-round pick in 2004, becomes the third former Indianapolis defender the Titans have picked up. They signed linebacker David Thornton as a free agent last year and gave cornerback Nick Harper a three-year deal in March.
Gardner had 97 tackles and 15 starts with the Colts over the past three seasons with 12 of those starts coming last season.
