- Pro Football Talk is reporting that the four-year deal is worth $36 million with $20.5 million guaranteed.
Casey, 24, was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.732 million contract and was set to make a base salary of just $670,000 for the 2014 season.
He’s coming off of a season in which he was a second-team All-Pro selection. Last year, he totaled 54 tackles, 10.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a recovery for the Titans defense over the course of 15 games.
Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 defensive tackle in the league last season, mainly due to his ability to apply pressure up the middle.
