Titans let go long-time scout Phil Neri

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have parted ways with longtime college scout Phil Neri, two sources have confirmed.

He was in his 13th season with the franchise and his 40th season as an NFL scout. He came to the Titans after serving as college apple icon 114x114 precomposeddirector of personnel for the Cleveland Browns. His contract was set to expire this spring after the draft.

It’s uncommon for a team to part ways with a scout during the season.

The college football regular season just concluded and the team’s scouts are currently in town for the first wave of draft meetings.

Neri served as the cross-checker for all prospects West of the Mississippi and it’s unclear who is now filling that role.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson did not reply to a request for comment and Neri did not return a text message.
