CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans announced the signing of a pair of former Chattanooga Mocs on Monday. Wide receiver Joseph Parker and defensive back Kareem Orr both inked free agent deals following the Titans’ rookie camp over the weekend.

This gives the Mocs four former players on Tennessee's 90-man roster, including offensive lineman Corey Levin ('16) and defensive lineman Isaiah Mack ('18). Levin was a sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2017 NFL Draft and played in 10 games last season. Mack was signed as an undrafted free agent in April following the 2019 Draft.

Parker played in 22 games in two seasons after transferring to Chattanooga from Wyoming. He posted 74 career catches for 842 yards and five TDs, graduating on May 3 with a sports management degree. He was third on the team with 437 receiving yards on 40 catches and two TDs in 2018. Parker's top performances his senior campaign included a career-high eight catches for 84 yards at ETSU and three receptions for 48 yards and two scores at Western Carolina.

Orr was a first-team All-SoCon performer as a senior in 2018. He gained five turnovers and was second in the league with four interceptions last season. He posted 36 tackles, including 4.5 for loss, to go with an interception and two recoveries as a junior in 2017.
