After failing to qualify for the 2021 Olympic Games through the World Olympic Qualifier last month, decorated wrestler Adam Coon has agreed to terms with the Titans.

The 6'5", 300-pounder will compete on the offensive line, most likely on the interior at guard.

During his college wrestling career at Michigan, Coon compiled a 116-15 record and became a three-time NCAA All-American. Earlier this year he earned a spot on the men's Olympic wrestling team, but during the last-chance qualification tournament, Coon lost 6-3 to Urkraine's Mykola Kuchmii in the 130-kilogram Greco-Roman quarterfinals.

While playing for Fowlerville High School (Mich.), Coon was named all-state linebacker (2012) and all-time honorable mention offensive line (2010, '11). Additionally, the star was named 2013 All-Livingston County Defensive Player of the Year and four-time all-league offensive lineman and defensive lineman/linebacker.

Off the field, he was a four-time state champion in wrestling.
