NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Cornerback and kick returner Chris Carr officially joined the Tennessee Titans when the Oakland Raiders declined to match Tennessee's offer sheet.
The Titans signed Carr, a restricted free agent, a week ago. The Raiders had until Friday night to match the contract. The Titans said Saturday that Oakland had declined to match the offer sheet.
Tennessee hopes to improve its return game with the addition of Carr, the Raiders' career leader in kickoff returns with 201 and kickoff return yards with 4,841.
In three NFL seasons, Carr has played in 48 games with four starts.
