Tennessee Titans Linebacker Finds Out He's Being Released Via Twitter

The Tennessee Titans are expected to release linebacker Bud Dupree in the near future, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Dupree is due to make $17 million this season, and the Titans will save cap space by parting ways with him.

Unfortunately for Dupree, he found out the news of his release via Twitter in a since-deleted tweet from his personal account.

Dupree's production this past season was lackluster, and he ranked just 126th in Pro Football Focus' defensive grades among EDGE players in 2022. Additionally, he suffered a pectoral injury late in the season, which may sideline him into summer camps.

This past season, the 29-year-old recorded 18 total tackles, four sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. 

However, entering his age-30 season, Dupree is really nothing more than decent depth at this point. As a result, the Titans have decided to release him and move on.
