NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans have released Rob Bironas, the franchises second-leading career scorer and one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history. Jamie Thompson . Bironas had 1,032 career points in his nine-year career with Tennessee and was just 28 points behind Al Del Greco, the top scorer in the history of the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans organization. Bironas has made 85.7 per cent of his career field-goal attempts (239 of 279) to rank fourth in NFL history in accuracy. The 36-year-old Bironas went 25 of 29 on field goals last season. He also made all 41 of his extra-point attempts to improve to 315 of 317 during his career. Bironas hasnt missed an extra-point attempt since his rookie season of 2005. "We want to thank Rob for his nine years of service to the Titans," Titans general manager Ruston Webster said Wednesday in a team statement. "He has been an outstanding kicker and we appreciate him both for his contributions on the field and in our community." Bironas made a franchise-record 11 game-winning field goals during his career, including a 60-yarder against the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 that remains the longest field goal in Oilers or Titans history. Bironas kicked an NFL single-game record eight field goals in a 2007 victory over the Houston Texans, including a 29-yard game-winner as time expired. Although Bironas made only one Pro Bowl - in 2007 - he was one of the NFLs most productive kickers for much of his time in Tennessee. His 239 field goals over the last nine years are the second-most by any NFL kicker during that stretch. He also has been impressive from long range, going 24 of 34 from at least 50 yards out. But he wasnt quite as effective lately. After making 88.9 per cent of his field-goal attempts (144 of 162) from 2007-11, Bironas made 83.3 per cent (50 of 60) over the last two years. Darryl Tapp . - After spending the morning in the hospital, Logan Couture gave the San Jose Sharks the spark they needed. Jason Buck . - Christophe Lalancette scored a third-period goal and added the shootout winner to lead the Drummondville Voltigeurs to a 5-4 win over the Quebec Remparts in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play on Sunday.MILWAUKEE -- San Diego Padres starter Josh Johnson is scheduled to undergo elbow ligament-replacement surgery for the second time and will miss the entire season. The right-hander, signed in November to an $8 million, one-year contract, was placed on the disabled list before the season began. He strained his elbow during spring training and the Padres initially thought he would be out about one month. Johnson had surgery on his right elbow in the off-season to remove bone spurs. He was examined after the lastest setback by Dr. James Andrews, who performed Tommy John surgery on Johnson in 2007. The 30-year-old Johnson was a two-time All-Star with the Marlins. He was 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA last season with Toronto. "This is a tough oone. Bill Mackrides. You know Josh Johnson has been banged up the last couple of years. He was really, really hopeful for this season," Padres manager Bud Black said before the teams game Wednesday night at Milwaukee. San Diego thought Johnson was over his problems following his off-season surgery. Black said Johnson will work hard to return to the mound. "Any time you go in for a second Tommy John surgery, it raises some eyebrows," Black said. "If anyone can come back, it is Josh Johnson." San Diego has also pitchers Cory Luebke and Casey Kelly on the disabled list due to Tommy John surgeries, and right-hander Joe Wieland is on the 60-day DL recovering from right elbow surgery. ' ' '
