Mike Vrabel revealed on Tuesday that the Tennessee Titans lost a solid defensive depth option just before the starting of training camp.

Vrabel said cornerback Buster Skrine informed the Titans he’s retiring.

Skrine, who turned 33 years old earlier this spring, signed with the Titans late last season, playing in six games for Tennessee during the regular season. He totaled 17 tackles, three passes defended, and one interception during his time with the Titans.

The former Chattanooga standout re-signed with Tennessee back in March.

Skrine was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Browns before signing a four-year deal with the New York Jets. Skrine also spent time with the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers.

The Titans had several players ahead of Skrine on the depth chart, including Caleb Farley, Kristian Fulton, Elijah Molden, and Roger McCreary. Skrine probably wouldn’t have seen much playing time, but he was a good veteran to have on the roster — especially since we don’t really know what to expect from Farley this season.

Vrabel noted on Tuesday that Tennessee will “see who’s out there” as a potential replacement for Skrine.
