Titans talking to Jurrell Casey about a new deal

Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey has a new look, and he’s hoping for a new contract to go with it.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean, Casey’s reps are talking to the Titans about a new deal, though nothing appears imminent at the moment.

Casey was a revelation last year, with 10.5 sacks at defensive tackle. He’s dropped 15 pounds (down to 290-ish) in hopes of playing even quicker, since he’ll likely move outside more in the Titans’ hybrid 3-4 defense this year.

“It’s a new season, a new goal,” Casey said. “Even if I would have made [the Pro Bowl] last year I still have to go out there and prove I can do it again another year.

“At the end of the day I still have to go out there and compete and get to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro as many times possible.”

He’s a tremendous bargain at the moment, making $1.431 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

    Glad they’re starting talks early. Easily our best defensive player, even best player on the roster. PAY THE MAN.

    This is the kind of player you pony up the dollars to keep. Lock him up.
