NASHVILLE - The Titans on Thursday signed two more players to futures contracts - linebacker Davin Bellamy and defensive lineman Daylon Mack.

Bellamy (6-5, 259) was signed as a college free agent by the Houston Texans following the 2018 NFL Draft. He spent time on the Texans and Bengals practice squads over the past three (2018-2020) seasons. In four years at the University of Georgia, Bellamy tallied 135 tackles, 13 sacks, five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 48 career games.

Mack (6-1, 340) entered the NFL as a fifth-round selection by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2019 NFL Draft. He played in one game during his rookie season, before being placed on injured reserve and missing the final eight games of the 2019 season. In 2020, Mack spent time with the New York Giants and Detroit in training camp and was on the practice squad for Arizona and Green Bay. As a college player at Texas A&M, Mack played 52 games and totaled 108 tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles.

The Titans previously signed these 15 players to futures contracts for 2021:

T Paul Adams WR Rashard Davis TE Parker Hesse WR Cody Hollister TE Tommy Hudson LB Jan Johnson T Brandon Kemp QB DeShone Kizer K Tucker McCann C Daniel Munyer DE Nate Orchard LS Matt Orzech TE Jared Pinkney WR Chester Rodgers LB Tuzar Skipper

All but Johnson, who played collegiately at Penn State, and Pinkney, a Vanderbilt product who spent last year on the Falcons practice squad, were members of the team's practice squad during the 2020 season.

Futures contract go into effect on the first day of the new league year. Since there are no practice squads during the offseason, teams are allowed to sign players for the offseason as they prepare for the next season.
