Junior receiver and kickoff returner Vincent Dallas and sophomore offensive lineman Alan Posey are no longer on the football team but will remain enrolled in school, Jones told the News Sentinel.
Dallas, a native of Ellenwood, Ga., played in 29 games and started 14 in his three-year career, bouncing between receiver and the defensive secondary.
He worked briefly at cornerback in August before returning to receiver, where he caught two passes for 14 yards in limited action this year. Dallas took over kickoff return duties when Devrin Young suffered an injury early in the season.
Young, who broke a bone in his hand, is close to a return.
Posey is a graduate of Clarke Central High School in Athens, Ga., which is former coach Derek Dooley’s alma mater. Posey redshirted in 2011 and played in three games in a reserve role in 2012 and 2013.
Posey posted a message on his Twitter account Friday: “One door closes, another opens. Thank you to everyone who helped has helped me so far. I'm excited to see what God has in store next.”
Both Dallas and Posey signed with the Vols in 2011.
