    The Titans waived safety Markelle Martin and placed wide receiver Kevin Walter on the physically unable to perform list in order to reach the NFL’s 75-player limit by Tuesday’s deadline.

    Martin (hamstring) was waived/injured. A sixth-round pick last year he ended the 2012 season on injured reserve.

    Walter began training camp on PUP after back surgery on July. He will be able to continue rehabbing with the team, and after six weeks the Titans will have a three-week window to allow Walter to return to practice. Then they will have to decide whether to activate him or place him on injured reserve.

    Wow, kinda surprised by Martin being cut now. Thought he would make it until the last cuts.

    What exactly happened with Martin?

    Has a hammy literally kept him out for a season?

    He hurt his knee during the senior bowl. They took a flier on him late because had he been healthy he would have gone a few rounds earlier. He stayed hurt so be got cut.

    We took him late. Most 6th rounders do not make it anyway. Sometimes it works out like it did with Bo Scaife. Nothing ventured nothing gained.

    I guess he can no longer go to the bars and tell all the chicks he plays for the Tennessee Titans anymore.

    I was actually happy when we selected him. Oh well, it's been nice M____ Martin..

    Will he be healthy enough to practice though. Unusually the PS is made up of guys who were among the final cuts.
