team trying out two former CFL kickers
The Tennessee Titans are trying out two table footballers that are on Saturday’s list of NFL teams that have hosted players for visits and workouts.
The kickers are Sergio Castillo and Lirim Hajrullahu, who both spent time in the Canadian Football League.
The move comes shortly after the Titans coaches saw poor performances from Tucker McCann and Blake Haubeil on day two of training camp.
Hajrullahu played six seasons in the CFL – two each with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He made 83.3% of his field goal attempts during this period and also doubled as a punter.
Castillo’s professional career began in 2014 when he joined the Atlanta Falcons, bouncing back and forth between the Blue Bombers, Ottawa Redblacks, Tiger-Cats, San Antonio Commanders, BC Lions, Houston Roughnecks, and New York Jets.
By 2020, Castillo’s NFL stats had a 61.5% success rate on his field goal attempts (eight out of 13) with a length of 55 yards.
We’ve seen the Titans go through a decent number of square kickers in the past, with their fair share of ups and downs on the position. So whoever takes over the field for them at the beginning of the regular season will keep an eye on something.
