Biography

PRO:  Michael Preston originally joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2011 season.  The 6-foot-5-inch, 213-pounder made an early impression on the coaching staff at training camp and spent the entire 2011 campaign on the team’s practice squad.  He was elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man roster for the final four games of 2012. The Heidelberg product appeared in seven games in 2013 and collected five receptions, including his first two career touchdowns.  Preston has unique combination of size and speed and uses his height to make plays on the ball in traffic.
