The Tennessee Titans signed Joshua Smith and waived fellow linebacker James Folston on Friday.
Smith is a local product, having grown up in Murfreesboro (Tenn.) and playing collegiately at Vanderbilt.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, Smith joins undrafted free-agent defensive back LaDarius Wiley as the former Commodores players on Tennessee's roster.
Smith registered 61 tackles, including eight for loss and 3.5 sacks, and a forced fumble in 12 games during his final season with Vanderbilt. He collected six sacks during his collegiate career and finished with 92 tackles in 40 games.
Folston's stint with the Titans was a short one.
The 23-year-old, who signed with Tennessee on Monday, was undrafted out of Pittsburgh in May.
Folston recorded 47 total tackles and 1.5 sacks in 43 career games with the Panthers.
