Quarterback Logan Woodside showed well enough in the Alliance of American Football to earn a contract from the Tennessee Titans.

The Ottawa Redblacks added Woodside to their negotiation list on November 10, 2016 as the University of Toledo product was throwing for 45 touchdowns and 4,129 yards for the Rockets that year, his best NCAA season. The Frankfort, Kentucky native holds Toledo’s top marks for career passing yards (10,399) and touchdown passes (93).

Woodside was selected in the third round of the AAF quarterback draft by the San Antonio Commanders. He played in seven games completing 58.3 per cent of his passes for 1,353 yards with seven touchdowns against seven interceptions.

Originally the Cincinnati Bengals chose Woodside in the seventh round, 249th overall during the 2018 NFL Draft. The 24-year-old was waived among final training camp cuts. Two days later the Titans inked Woodside to a practice roster contract where he stayed for three weeks until being released.

Clearly Tennessee tracked Woodside through the AAF and opted to re-add the six-foot-one, 213-pound pivot. Woodside joins incumbent starter Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill as quarterbacks on the Titans roster.

Expect the Redblacks to monitor Woodside.
