The Tennessee Titans have released safety Michael Griffin has NFL teams continue to release players.

Griffin was the team’s first round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. The 31-year-old free safety had 717 career tackles with 7.0 sacks, 25 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.

“I knew one day my time would come and I cherished every minute of it,” Griffin wrote on Twitter. “It’s been real Tennessee. Thanks for everything. #nextchapter”

Griffin was going to make $6.5 million in 2016 with an $8.3 cap hit and a $1.8 dead cap hit. The team will get to have the $6.5 million off of the books for the upcoming free agency market that starts in March.

His release has been speculated for quite some time, as the new Titans front office, led by general manager Jon Robinson, looks to rebuild the team.

In his entire nine-year career with the Titans, he missed just three games. He played in 141 games in his career.

Griffin was a Pro Bowler in 2008 and 2010. Now that he’s available, he can sign with any team immediately and doesn’t have to wait to March to sign with a new team.

“I want to thank Griff for his time here with the organization,” Mike Mularkey, the Titans head coach, said. “He was a leader who showed up to work every day in an effort to get better, and I appreciated his effort both on and off the field for this team.

“He touched a lot of people in this community and in our organization, I want to wish him the best, and I hope he will always be remembered as a great Titan.”
