Antony Auclair has not said his last word in the NFL. The Beauceron tight end joins the Tennessee Titans, his third team in the big circuit.
For now, it is on the reserve squad that the The Titans signed the former Houston Texans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a successful physical evaluation.
In today's NFL, it's common for players of the reserve team quickly find themselves in the regular roster.
“We won't go into the details of what was discussed with the organization, but we are very comfortable with the vision. There is never anything guaranteed in the NFL and Antony is aware of this, but he has managed to make his place everywhere he has gone, “said his agent Sasha Ghavami, during a telephone interview.
Anthony Auclair attended the Rouge et Or practice on September 22.
Released by the Texans on August 30, Auclair took the time to treat a knee injury he suffered at the start of camp workout.
He also lent a hand to the Rouge et Or coaching staff to add another string to his bow.
His salary with the Texans was fully guaranteed for the season, even if the team severed ties.
“Antony may have taken some time to return to 100% health. Several teams have contacted me in the last two months, but for him to return to the game, he had to be physically ready and that an ideal situation presented itself to him, noted Ghavami.
That sweet spot came from the Titans, a team known for their physical style behind sturdy running back Derrick Henry.
“They are a team that values the tight end position and runs a lot with the ball. The style fits very well with Antony,” added the agent.
In the coaching staff at Nashville, Auclair will reunite with aerial game manager Tim Kelly, who was his offensive coordinator with the Texans last season.
“There's an element of familiarity there. The plan looks good,” said Ghavami.
The Titans, after losing their first two games, have just signed five straight wins. The team will head to Kansas City for their next game against the Chiefs on Sunday.
The offense currently uses four tight ends, Austin Hooper, Geoff Swaim, Kevin Rader and Chigoziem Okonkwo.< /p>
