Over the last few days, one Tennessee Titans player has been making headlines at training camp for the wrong reasons.

On Tuesday, Jamarco Jones was kicked out of practice after getting into it with star defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons.

He was back at practice yesterday, but it didn’t take long for him to cause more problems with his teammates.

Today, he made a block that led to him being kicked out of practice once again and nearly started a brawl with angry members of the defense.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Jones has now been released by the Titans as a result of the issues he has caused in camp.

If there’s any one thing the Tennessee Titans can’t really afford right now, it’s for their roster to get any more shallow along the offensive line.

For them to release an offensive lineman right now, they must have really been fed up with his behavior during training camp.

With his release, Jamarco Jones’ tenure with the Titans will be remembered as a major disappointment.

Jones signed a 2-year deal worth $4.8 million last offseason, but never took a snap for the Titans after spending all of last season on IR.

He was believed to be in the mix to step in for Nicholas Petit-Freire while he serves a suspension until the Titans made this decision.

Jones won’t have the strongest market as he hits free agency, but he’ll probably latch on somewhere by the start of the season as O-line depth isn’t an easy thing to come by.

Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans will now find themselves looking to add some depth of their own after removing Jones from a thin offensive line.
