Titans reach deal with second-round pick Zach Brown


The Titans have bagged another draft pick.

Brian Overstreet, agent for linebacker Zach Brown, told Josina Anderson of ESPN.com that his client has agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Titans. Per Anderson, the deal has a total value of $3,858,298 with a signing bonus of $1,246,036.

Brown, a second-round pick, opened the eyes of scouts with his athletic play at North Carolina. He broke the school’s 60-meter dash record and that speed served him very well in pass coverage during his college career. The problem is that scouts also noticed the fact that Brown shied away from contact during much of his time with the Tar Heels. If he can’t turn that around, it is hard to see Brown developing into something other than a nickel linebacker. If he does address that shortcoming, Brown should be in the mix for a starting outside linebacker job.

Brown is the fourth Titans draft pick to agree on a contract. They have three more players to nail down, including first-round pick Kendall Wright.
