Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on contracts, pending physicals, with Safety Johnathan Cyprien and Safety Brynden Trawick.
Cyprien (6-0, 223) has totaled 442 tackles in his first four seasons in the NFL playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars. In three of his four years in Jacksonville, he has finished as one of the team’s top two tacklers, including leading the team in 2014 with 111 tackles.
Nashville, TN – With his quarterback in place and five Pro Bowl selections due to return in 2017, among several more core players, Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson can add more through free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft.
The unrestricted free agent signing period is scheduled to begin at the start of the new league year on March 9th, when 2016 contracts expire. Players not under contract for 2017 are free to sign with another club at that point. The Titans are projected to be comfortably below the NFL’s 2017 salary cap, which will exceed its 2016 number of $155 million.
Nashville, TN – Mike Mularkey helped the Tennessee Titans achieve a reversal rarely seen in the 57-year history of the organization. He became the second coach to take over the team and in his first full-time season deliver at least six more wins than the previous year.
Sid Gillman was the first to accomplish the feat with the 1974 club that went 7-7 one year after finishing 1-13.
Mike Mularkey and Jon Robinson enter second year together; Titans own two of top 18 picks in NFL Draft
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans embark upon the 2017 offseason with renewed optimism. In the past year, they named a new general manager and head coach, witnessed the continued ascension of their franchise quarterback, acquired key roster pieces, and experienced one of the franchise’s best one-year turnarounds.
With stability at the top of the organization and a foundation in place, the Titans now shift their focus to free agency and the NFL Draft.
