The 6'3'', 212-pound receiver from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania totaled 1,836 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns as a member of the Orange. He ranks seventh all-time in Syracuse football history in career receiving yardage.
This will be the third NFL team to give West a shot as he has previously spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets.

The Titans have a number of solid receivers on their roster including Rishard Matthews, Andre Johnson, and Kendall Wright, so it is still a long-shot that West will make the team. However, if he can find a way to hand around on the practice squad, you never know what can happen.
The next chance that you will have to see West in action is this Saturday, August 20th at 3pm ET when the Titans take on the Carolina Panthers in their second preseason game.
