Biography

 
PRO: Corey Lynch is a veteran safety that was signed by the Titans midseason to provide depth in the secondary and on special teams coverage units.  The Appalachian State product spent three weeks with Tennessee during 2013 training camp but was released on the final roster cutdown.  The sixth-year safety was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals and has also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Diego Chargers.
