Report: Titans have reached agreement with Bud Dupree

USA TODAY Sports

The Titans, who made only 19 sacks last season, should see more than that this season after their free agent agreements Monday.

They agreed to a three-year, $21.5 million deal with former Colts defensive end Denico Autry earlier in the day. Now, comes news that the Titans have in fact reached agreement with former Steelers edge rusher Bud Dupree.

It’s a $16.5 million a year deal on a multi-year deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Dupree played last season under the franchise tag after the Steelers and Dupree’s representation failed to reach agreement on a long-term deal.

But Dupree torn his ACL in the Steelers’ Week 12 game against the Ravens.

He finished 2020 with eight sacks in 11 games.

Dupree leaves Pittsburgh after six seasons, 66 starts, 231 tackles, 39.5 sacks, an interception, 11 pass breakups and eight forced fumbles.

He has never made a Pro Bowl, including in 2019 when Dupree totaled a career-best 11.5 sacks, 17 quarterback hits and 68 tackles.

  1. This guy sucked without TJ Watt on the other side.

    The desperation is hilarious.

  2. hope the titans have a quality guy opposite him (ie t.j. watt) – otherwise the guy disappears.

  3. I like him, but don’t know if he can anchor a pass rush. As the #1 guy, I only see 7-8 sacks per year, which still isn’t bad.

  4. This was the 1 guy PITT needed to re-sign. Please don’t sign 78, major overrated.

  5. I guess we have an early candidate for biggest overpay. I do like the Autry signing, though.

  6. Took Bud a few years to “get it” and become the player he is now. Hard to see him go now that he reached his potential. Steelers could never of paid him that contract with so many other needs and the cap situation. Good luck to him. Hopefully Highsmith will step in where bud left off.

  7. Horrible move by the Titans. Now they need a TJ Watt on the other side for him to be as productive as he was with the Steelers. Coming of a acl tear too? Ridiculous.

  8. Saw single blocking almost every down, couldn’t cover his mother, and had a torn ACL. I’d say Titans will be paying him about $4mill per sack.

    Desperation is your teams signing of these wide receivers. Just goes to show you Harry is horrible.

  10. Pittsburgh 11-0 and then this guy went down….and so did the Steelers. They should have re-signed him and let Ben walk

    More to the position than sacks. Good lord. Go look at when and how his sacks came. It’s all a mirage. What a country.

    Oh yes. Move the goalposts one more time Mr. Jealous. Your team wouldn’t know a proper rebuild if BB told them what to do.

    Old, far Ben, cap hell and holes everywhere. How is James Conner doing? All we heard for 3 years was how great he and Schuster were. lol!!

    Enjoy, pinhead!

  13. No way the Steelers could afford him. Plus, we have a history of letting linebackers go at the right time. I wish Bud all the best in TN. We’ll miss him, but good for him getting paid.
