Sean Spence lands with Titans

AP

Former Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has lured a former pupil to Nashville.

The Titans have announced that linebacker Sean Spence has agreed to terms. Per a league source, it’s a one-year, $2.5 million deal.

During the preseason of his rookie year, Spence suffered a gruesome knee injury. He missed two full seasons due to the injury.

The third-round pick in 2012 drew interest from several teams, including the Dolphins and Jaguars.

Spence appeared in 15 games with four starts in 2015. In 2014, he appeared in 16 games, starting nine times.

Via the team’s official website, Spence will compete at inside linebacker and play a key role on special teams.

  1. Seems awfully stupid to carry a guy through all those years and then let him go when he’s starting to pay off. But I’m not in charge of the team that lost five out of the last six games to the Ravens.

  2. With the Steelers, Spence had the misfortune of being the 4th best inside linebacker on the team, behind starters Timmons and Shazier, and probably hard hitting Vince Williams as well. He might well be starter quality on a lot of teams, but he wasn’t going to get 2.5 million from the Steelers. He landed in a good spot and he’s a great story, so all the best of luck to him going forward 🙂

    Go Steelers!

  3. Seems awfully stupid (and immature) to negatively comment on any post of a rival team with the success of the Steelers. Colbert knows exactly what he’s doing.

  4. Sorry to see him go. I understand the rationale, given the depth at inside linebacker, but he is game. Great attitude. Lebow knows him better than anyone except Butler.

    Good luck to him, hope he starts.

    It’s called having Vince Williams who is better than him coming up as a FA next year.

  6. Best of luck, sir. I was glad to see him able to fight through that injury and bounce back to become a quality player. Moving to Tennessee means he has a grasp on the defense being run, which gives him a leg up to compete for a starting role.

    Enjoy watching the Ravens draft 6th overall this year. Given how that team is trending, probably want to get accustomed to having nice high draft picks for the next 5-10 years.
