SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Former Cal Poly linebacker Nick Dzubnar has reached an agreement with the Tennessee Titans on a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.
Dzubnar has played the last five seasons with the San Diego and Los Angeles Chargers, primarily on special teams. The 28-year-old played 65 games with no starts, including all 32 games over the past two seasons. In his career, Dzubnar has seen action on 65 defensive snaps and 1,234 on special teams.
Dzubnar has 60 career tackles.
Last season, he made eight tackles in 16 games. He saw action on 332 special teams snaps and none on defense.
Undrafted out of Cal Poly in 2015, Dzubnar became a free agent following the 2019 campaign. He led the National Football League in special team tackles during the 2017 season, according to teamrankings.com.
Playing in 13 of the Los Angeles Chargers' 16 games one year after missing a dozen contests due to a knee injury, Dzubnar earned 21 total tackles on special teams, edging teammate Austin Ekeler by four stops for the top honor.
The Mission Viejo High School graduate was a first-team All-Big Sky Conference selection as a senior at Cal Poly in 2014 and also earned All-America honors from five media organizations after shattering the school record for tackles in a single season with 167.
An outside linebacker as a freshman and sophomore before moving to the middle in 2013, Dzubnar also led the Mustangs in tackles as a sophomore (107) and junior (112), becoming the second Mustang in the school's 21-year Division I history to record over 100 tackles three times. Jordan Beck was the other. Dzubnar played in all 47 games following his redshirt year in 2010, including 38 consecutive starts.
Dzubnar notched 18 career games with double-digit tackles, including a career-high 19 against South Dakota State in 2013, and finished with 414 career tackles, No. 2 all-time at the university. Dzubnar's career totals also include 24.0 tackles for lost yardage, 4.0 sacks, seven forced fumbles, five interceptions and 15 pass breakups.
