And it hasn’t taken long, as he’s headed to work out for the Titans, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
If he signs there, he’d reunite with his old Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, but he’d also lend some legitimacy to a perhaps the league’s most anonymous competition.

Then the Titans will sit down and try to pick a winner. Or go looking through the waiver wire for someone else.
"At some point, you've got to base it off what you've seen them do," coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday. "And if you don't feel like they can do it, you have to look for other avenues to address it."
The Titans decided to go young at kicker in March when they cut veteran Rob Bironas, the fourth-most accurate kicker all-time in the NFL. They already had Bonani on the roster after having the former South Florida kicker in training camp last year, and they added undrafted rookie Coons out of Washington after the draft in May.

It’s possible that the Eagles’ kicker for the 2014 season is not currently on their roster.
They are obviously not totally sold on Alex Henery, who has missed from 47 and 31 yards this preseason.
Cody Parkey was acquired from the Colts for running back David Fluellen on Wednesday and will get a brief tryout for the job. If the team isn’t satisfied with either option, they’ll look to the outside for help.
There are some big names available should the Eagles decide to go that direction. Mentioned on the list were Rob Bironas, David Akers and Rian Lindell among others. It's a situation to keep an eye on because the Birds will put up points this season, and place their kicker in situations to put up points, too - but they'll have to trust him first.

Coons nailed a 50-yard field goal in the first half against the Saints on Friday after his 45-yarder was negated because of a penalty.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt was impressed.
"Not only was it a 50-yard, but he had already made a 45-yarder," Whisenhunt said. "To have to come back and re-kick it and make it speaks a whole lot about what you are looking for in that position."

Bonani went 3-for-5 on Saturday night during a practice at LP Field. He hit from 33, 39 and 47 yards but was way left on an attempt from 43 yards and also missed from 42.
Travis Coons was 4-of-5, hitting from 41, 39, 42 and 47 yards while missing from 49.
