Biography

 
PRO:  Diondre Borel joined the Titans at the end of the 2012 campaign as a member of their practice squad.  The 6-foot, 196-pounder made the transition to wide receiver in the NFL following a standout career as a collegiate quarterback at Utah State.  Borel has a unique skill set that allows him to excel in the slot and as a return specialist.  Prior to arriving in Tennessee, he spent time with the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

COLLEGE:

•    Finished his career with 6,698 passing yards, good for No. 2 in school history behind only Jose Fuentes (1999-2002).  Also checked in at No. 2 in school annals with 8,096 yards of total offense, trailing only Fuentes (8,791).
•    Tied for eighth in Utah State history with 18 career rushing touchdowns.
•    As a senior (2010), started all 12 contests as a senior and connected on 167 of 314 passes (53.2 percent) for 2,108 yards and eight touchdowns.  Rushed for 316 yards and seven scores on 142 carries.  Was named to the Manning Award watch list.
