According to Wyatt, the two sides are still working on a restructured deal that would keep Wimbley in Tennessee.
Wimbley, 30, signed a five-year deal worth $35 million that included $13.5 million guaranteed with the Titans after the Raiders were forced to part ways with him in attempt to get a handle on their cap situation.
The Titans would free up $2.4 million in cap space by releasing Wimbley who is set to count $7.8 million against the team’s 2014 cap.
- Wyatt adds that Wimbley is “mulling it over now.“
There has been talk for a few months that Wimbley could be a cap casualty, so this really doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
Wimbley hasn’t developed into the impact player the Titans though they were getting a few years ago. This season, he totaled just 11 tackles and three sacks over the course of 16 games. He played just 360 in all of 2013, so you can see why he would come up as a potential cap casualty.
