Titans Sign Second-Round DE Kevin Dodd To A Four-Year Deal

The Tennessee Titans announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms with second-round DE Kevin Dodd.

This leaves third-round S Kevin Byard as the only unsigned draft pick for the Titans from their 2016 class.

Last week, Titans HC Mike Mularkey announced that Dodd underwent preventative surgery on his right foot and will miss OTAs. However, the expectation is that Dodd will be back for the start of training camp.

Dodd, 22, was taken with the No. 32 overall pick by the Titans. At the start of day two, reports indicated that teams including the Cowboys were trying to trade up for pass rushers including Dodd. However, the Titans elected to stay where they were and grab another edge rusher for their defense.

According to OverTheCap.com, Dodd receives a four-year contract worth $6,552,304 to go along with a signing bonus of $2,965,312.

During his four-year college career at Clemson, Dodd recorded 82 tackles, 26.5 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a recovery.
