The Titans trimmed a player from their roster on Monday.
The team announced that linebacker Victor Ochi has been placed on waivers. Ochi signed with the Titans last June, but tore his ACL in August and spent the entire season on injured reserve.
Ochi signed with the Ravens as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and went on to play two games for the Jets after getting cut in Baltimore. He also spent time with the Chiefs, but didn’t appear in any other games.
But without the benefit of an off-day Tuesday, Pittsburgh will take the field for 13 straight days and 26 of the next 27.
Temperatures in Chicago are not expected to change dramatically until Wednesday, meaning the Pirates will continue to play in wintry conditions for at least another day.
But cold weather or not, the Pirates will look to stay hot.
“We’ve been able to have success with what we’ve been doing,” pitcher Trevor Williams told reporters on Friday, according to mlb.com.
Williams suggested holding on for another three days in Chicago might be worth waiting for as Pittsburgh’s next road trip will be a warm one.
“I think all of us are ready to get to Miami,” he said.
“To be on the grass on the field where it felt natural and I was doing it myself, man, it makes me want to go out and run forever,” Golden said, via Darren Urban of the team website.
Golden, who led the Cardinals with 12.5 sacks in 2016 but had none in four games last season, could see a position switch as Arizona changes to a 4-3 defense. He played linebacker in the 3-4 but likely becomes a defensive end in new coach Steve Wilks’ defense.
“Football is football to me, whether you are in the three-point stance, whether you are standing up,” Golden said. “You can do all the technique you want, at the end of the day, you have to beat that man. I played defensive end in college, and I set the edge. I have got it on film in the league. I’ve got film setting the edge and getting around these guys. To be real, it’s just not difficult at all. I’d be lying if I said it’d be one percent difficult. It’s football.”
Golden won’t get much work on the field in the offseason, but he has to get healthy first.
