Gilbert, a 6-foot-3-inch, 261-pound undrafted free agent from Laveen, Arizona, played for the Green Bay Packers between the 2017 and '19 seasons. In 18 appearances with the Packers, Gilbert recorded 40 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
Gilbert will join Tennessee, who is coached by former Patriot Mike Vrabel, and the Titans run a similar 3-3-5 defense to the scheme Gilbert was a part of at the UA. Titans currently have DaQuan Jones and Jurrell Casey penciled in as the starters with Brent Urban and Matt Dickerson as reserves. Former UA defensive back Dane Cruikshank will enter his second season with the Titans this year.
Titans will open up the season on Sunday, Sept. 8 against the Cleveland Browns.
