Former Ohio State safety Damon Webb has signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent, according to a tweet from Ohio State.

Webb will join former Ohio State cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs in Tennessee along with first-year head coach and former Ohio State defensive line and linebackers coach Mike Vrabel.

Playing in 16 games combined in 2014 and 2015, Webb became a starter in 2016; playing alongside former Ohio State safety and future first round draft pick Malik Hooker. During his junior season, Webb had 57 tackles, two tackles for loss and an interception, earning an honorable mention for All-Big Ten.

With the loss of Hooker, Webb became the only remaining starter on Ohio State’s secondary moving into the 2017 season. He ended the season with 61 tackles, leading the team with five interceptions and earning third-team All-Big Ten honors.

Before ending his collegiate career, Webb helped Ohio State win the Cotton Bowl over USC, recovering a fumble to set up a score and returning an interception for a touchdown, earning him the defensive Most Valuable Player award for the bowl game.

At the 2018 NFL Combine, Webb ran a 4.62 40-yard dash and tied for eighth among safeties with 17 bench press reps.
