Biography

PRO: Tim Shaw has become a special teams ace in his first six NFL seasons, and he is a valuable member of the linebacking corps.  He joined the Titans in 2010 after spending time with the Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears.  A former fifth-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, Shaw’s leadership on the field and in the locker room was recognized by his teammates when they named him special teams captain for the 2011 and 2012 seasons.    

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

•    Shaw recorded his second career blocked punt against the Steelers on Oct. 11, 2012, getting in front of a Drew Butler attempt.
•    According to press box tallies of special teams tackles (many teams, including the Titans, publish tackle statistics from coaches’ film review), Shaw ranked third in the NFL from 2009–2012 with 61 total special teams stops, trailing only John Wendling’s 77 and Heath Farwell’s 64 (Shaw’s published total from the Titans based on film review during that time is 78).
