Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Wide receiver Marc Mariani was one of 20 players cut by the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

Cornerback Tommie Campbell and linebacker Moise Fokou were also let go as the Titans trimmed their roster to 53 before the deadline.

Mariani was drafted in the seventh round by the Titans in 2010 out of Montana and spent 2010-11 mostly returning kicks and punts, scoring three touchdowns. He missed the last two seasons because of injuries.

In addition to their 20 cuts, the Titans put defensive lineman Antonio Johnson on injured reserve and traded defensive lineman Lavar Edwards to Dallas for an undisclosed future draft pick.
