NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have poor cornerback depth.

To their credit, that didn't prompt them to keep Tommie Campbell. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports Campbell has been cut.

Campbell had a disastrous, three-penalty night Thursday, exchanged words with both safety Bernard Pollard and coach Ken Whisenhunt and gave up a bunch of plays. (One of those three penalties was declined, because the pass was completed for a touchdown.)

Campbell is an exceptional athlete.

I thought that would convince a new coaching staff to continue to give him time to develop. But his mental game has never caught up to his physical tools, and even his ability to force fair catches on punts was not enough to save him.

The Titans have Jason McCourty, Coty Sensabaugh and Blidi Wreh-Wilson as their top three cornerbacks. Fourth-round pick Marqueston Huff will also be on the team.

Khalid Wooten has been used as a safety this summer, but started as a cornerback and is regarded as versatile and able to do both. But I have heard he is unlikely to stick. Undrafted rookie Winston Wright has not yet been cut. I don't know if they like him enough for him to make it.

With or without Wooten and/or Wright, the Titans will be scanning the waiver wire and looking to add to their pool of cornerbacks.
