NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans have signed three-time All-American wrestler Adam Coon to play on the offensive line.

Coon compiled a 116-15 record in college while wrestling at Michigan, but never played football for the Wolverines. A four-time high school state champion in wrestling, Coon was named the Detroit Athletic Club High School Athlete of the Year as a senior in high school.

Coon has no college football playing experience but was an all-state linebacker in 2012 at Fowlerville High School in Michigan and was an honorable mention offensive lineman in 2010 and 2011.

Tennessee also placed cornerback Kevin Johnson on the reserve-retired list. Johnson signed a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Titans on March. The team also waived (injured) offensive tackle Anthony McKinney.
