Titans Ink Veteran WR Donnie Avery

The Titans have agreed to terms with veteran wide receiver Donnie Avery, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

The Titans have confirmed the signing.

Avery was a second-round pick out of the University of Houston by the St. Louis Rams in 2008. After catching 100 passes for 1,263 yards and eight touchdowns his first two seasons in the league, Avery tore his ACL before the 2010 season and spent the year on injured reserve.

Despite having his $638,750 base salary fully guaranteed, the Rams released Avery at the end of training camp.

The Titans lost No. 1 wide receiver Kenny Britt to a torn right ACL and MCL in Sunday’s 17-14 win over the Denver Broncos. Britt has been placed on injured reserve.

On Tuesday, the Titans worked out veteran receivers David Clowney, Craig Davis, Mardy Gilyard, Johnnie Lee Higgins and Tiquan Underwood. Avery was part of a second group of wideouts that worked for the team on Wednesday.

Following his release from St. Louis, Avery had tryouts with the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and worked out for the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday.
