Titans Met With DT Jurrell Casey’s Agent To Discuss Contract Tuesday

 

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Titans DT Jurrell Casey, met with the team Tuesday to discuss a contract extension for his client.

  • According to Wyatt, the fact that Rosenhaus traveled to Tennessee appears to be a positive sign regarding the current state of the ongoing negotiations.

The Titans have said publicly that they would like to lock up Casey long-term, so we’ll have to see if any real progress is made in the coming days.

Casey, 24, is entering the final year of his four-year, $2.732 million contract and will 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, mainly due to his ability to apply pressure up the middle.
