 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Jeff Fisher had warned Roydell Williams that the Tennessee Titans needed to see the receiver on the field and working through his injuries.
Williams' effort wasn't enough to keep his spot on the roster. The Titans' co-leader in receptions last year was among 22 players waived Saturday.
Williams, who had a career-best 55 catches last season, shared the team lead in receptions with Justin Gage, and he was second with 719 yards receiving. But he had struggled since breaking an ankle days before Tennessee's playoff game last January.
The Titans signed Gage to an extension in February and brought back veteran receiver Justin McCareins in March, a duo that will be their starters in the opener against Jacksonville. Brandon Jones, whose season was cut short by a groin injury last year, has been working as the slot receiver this preseason.
Fisher said in a statement that the decisions have become harder the past two years, which he called good.
``It means we are more competitive and have more depth. We had to let some players go today that have been part of our program, which is not easy,'' he said. ``They were tough decisions, but we made the decisions that we thought were in the best interest of the club, and I am aware that some of these players will resurface somewhere else in the league.''
The Titans had drafted Williams in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. Safety Calvin Lowry, a fourth-round pick in the 2006 draft, was waived.
He began the 2007 season as a starter at free safety before being replaced by last year's first-round pick Michael Griffin. But Lowry finished the season as a starter in 11 of 16 games filling in for the injured Chris Hope at the end of the year.
