Titans won’t pick up fifth-year option on Chance Warmack


The Titans spent draft weekend getting bigger and more physical up front.

But they’re not committing themselves to an extra year of the previous administration’s attempt to do the same.

Via Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Titans won’t be picking up the fifth-year option on 2013 first-rounder Chance Warmack.

Warmack became an immediate starter at right guard as a rookie, and has started every game he’s played. He missed two games last year with a knee injury.

It’s not that he’s played all that poorly, but the option for the 10th overall pick would have been around $11.9 million, and there’s a decent chance they could keep him at a lower number when he becomes a free agent.

The Titans spent this year’s first pick on another offensive lineman, right tackle Jack Conklin.
