After trimming the roster to 53 players in early September, the Tennessee Titans made the following changes to said roster:
Donnie Avery was added to the roster;
Quinn Johnson was cut;
Kevin Malast was added to the roster;
Robert Johnson was added to the roster; and
Quinn Johnson was acquired off waivers.
And how were those roster spots created? Respectively,
Kenny Britt was placed on injured reserve;
Ahamard Hall's four-game suspension ended;
Barrett Ruud was placed on injured reserve;

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Randy Moss is looking for a new NFL team after announcing his return on Monday, his 35th birthday.

Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman said Moss won't get a chance at a third stint in a Vikings' uniform.
"We'll be moving on," Spielman said.
Moss, who can be signed immediately because...
A couple years ago, I wrote a piece parsing some of what Mike Reinfeldt said about his football philosophy and ideas when he was a relatively young general manager. Now, it's been Ruston Webster's turn to make the rounds, speaking first at a lunch at Lipscomb University and then on a conference call to season ticket holders (audio link, no transcript). I don't think Webster...
Two Titans officials told Albert Breer that Randy Moss was a model teammate during his short stint with Tennessee in 2010 and that the former All-Pro wide receiver could fit well on a veteran team.
Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the team has no intention of re-signing former first-round pick Randy Moss.
Elite receivers — even ones at the end of their career — demand the ball. And want more. That's one reason any talk of the Lions signing the soon-to-be-unretired Randy Moss should end there. As talk.
The Minnesota Vikings need wide receivers. Just not Randy Moss. Given the trouble he caused during his second stint with the team, the disinterest in bringing back one of the most popular players among Vikings fans in franchise history comes as no surprise. But general manager Rick Spielman confirmed Thursday the Vikings "will be moving on" without Moss.
