Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN)- The Tennessee Titans are mixing things up at training camp. On Thursday, the team released quarterback DeShone Kizer and signed Matt Barkley.

Kizer, who played college football at Notre Dame, was competing with Logan Woodside for the backup quarterback position, but struggled to find consistency in camp. His last start came during his rookie year in 2017 with the Cleveland Browns. He is now a free agent again.

As for Barkley, he announced his new landing spot on Twitter before the Titans confirmed the news:

The former USC standout has been a journeyman over the last several seasons, making stops in Philadelphia, Arizona, San Francisco and Cincinnati. He spent the last three years backing up Josh Allen with the Buffalo Bills.
