Source: Petrus claimed off waivers

December, 5, 2012
It didn't take long for offensive lineman Mitch Petrus to find work after being waived by the Patriots on Tuesday, as he was claimed by the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, according to a league source.

Petrus, a 2010 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas by the Giants, was signed by the Patriots on Nov. 13 and active for two games. He was inactive this past Sunday when the team clinched its fourth straight AFC East title with a win over the Miami Dolphins.

In addition to Tennessee, the Giants also put in a claim on Petrus, although he was awarded to Tennessee because they had a higher priority on the waiver wire.

After waiving Petrus, the Patriots added a pair of practice squad offensive linemen: Tommie Draheim and Colin Miller.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
