Titans Release Veteran DL Karl Klug

The Tennessee Titans announced Friday that they’ve informed defensive lineman Karl Klug that he will be released.

“I really appreciate all that Karl gave to this team in his seven seasons with the Titans,” Titans GM Jon Robinson said in a statement. “He is a tireless worker, and his passion for football showed in how he prepared for and played the game. I know all of us who worked with him here wish him and his family the best moving forward.”

Klug, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He played out the final year of his two-year, $3.75 million contract before signing a two-year contract with the Titans last year.

Klug was set to make a base salary of $2 million for the 2018 season.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Klug will free up $2,484,375 of available cap space while creating no dead money.

In 2017, Klug appeared in 15 games for the Titans and recorded 18 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 91 interior defender out of 122 qualifying players.
