Titans drop Mark Jones

In August, Titans return specialist Mark Jones said that the position of punt returner was his to lose.

And he lost it.

In a move that could mean rookie receiver Kenny Britt will finally get his wish to return punts (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/08/13/britt-to-return-punts-for-titans/), the Titans have released Jones.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, the Titans have informed Jones and "several other players" of their impending release (http://www.tennessean.com/article/20090904/SPORTS01/90904028/2072/SPORTS/Agent++Titans+release+returner+Mark+Jones).

"He was released this morning,'' agent Brian Levy said regarding Jones. "A bit surprising.''

He joined the Titans in the offseason via a two-year deal with a $200,000 signing bonus.

Per Wyatt, offensive lineman Jason Murphy and receiver Phillip Morris has been told that they'll soon be joining Jones as former Titans.
