Titans announce extension with Jurrell Casey

The Titans and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey were talking about a contract extension for the last couple of months and those talks have reached a fruitful conclusion.

The Titans announced Wednesday afternoon that they have reached a multiyear deal with Casey, who is coming off a 10.5-sack season that left him as one of the most productive  pass rushers at the position. PFT has learned from Casey’s agent Drew Rosenhaus that it is a four-year extension through 2018 worth as much as $36 million with $20.5 million guaranteed. It is not known how full those guarantees are, but we do know General Manager Ruston Webster is excited that the deal is done.

“We are excited to come to an agreement on an extension with Jurrell,” Webster said, via the team. “This is something Jurrell has earned not only with his play on the field but his work ethic as well. We appreciate Jurrell’s professionalism through this process and look forward to many good years to come.”

The 2011 third-round pick was heading into the final year of his deal before reaching agreement on the extension. He’s been a starter since his rookie season, but 2013 was his breakthrough year in terms of production. The Titans made it clear on Wednesday that they expect it to be his standard moving forward. If so, they have a foundation piece for their defense for years to come.
