PRO: The Titans claimed Chris Milton off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts just prior to the start of the 2019 regular season. The 5-foot-11-inch, 190-pounder has excelled on special teams during his first three NFL campaigns. The Georgia Tech product appeared in 35 games for the Colts from 2016-18 and notched 15 special teams tackles and two forced fumbles on coverage units.
• In 2018, Milton played in 15 games and posted three tackles, seven special teams stops and one fumble recovery. He saw action in both postseason games and contributed on special teams with two tackles and one forced fumble.
• In 2017, Milton appeared in 14 games and recorded four tackles and one fumble recovery while adding five special teams tackles.
• Milton is related to former NFL running back Tashard Choice, who played six seasons (2008-2013) in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts.
• Milton had the opportunity to learn from one of the best cornerbacks to play this century. Milton and Pro Football Hall of Famer Champ Bailey’s family were close and when Milton was getting ready for the NFL, he reached out to Bailey for tips. They trained together during the weeks leading up to the draft. Now if he ever has questions, he still reaches out to the legendary cornerback.
