Titans lock up Ropati Pitoitua with a three-year deal

With the league’s legal tampering period beginning Saturday, the clock is ticking for teams to retain their own before others start butting in.

The Titans were able to hang onto one of their own priorities, locking up defensive end Ropati Pitoitua to a three-year deal, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean.

Pitoitua signed with the Titans last March as a free agent, after spending a year with the Chiefs.

He’s a solid player against the run, and gives them some flexibility up front as the Titans transition to a hybrid defense under new coordinator Ray Horton.

And after bouncing around (the Titans were his third team in as many years), knowing where he’ll be must have been enough of a relief to forego the open market.
