The Tennessee Titans announced Wednesday that they’ve signed first-round DT Jeffery Simmons to a four-year rookie contract.
This leaves just two unsigned draft picks from the Titans’ 2019 class:
|19.||1.||Jeffery Simmons||DT||Miss. State||Signed|
|51.||2.||A.J. Brown||WR||Ole Miss|
|188.||6.||David Long||LB||West Virginia||Signed|
Simmons, 21, was the No. 19 overall pick by the Titans out of Mississippi State. Some felt he could have been a top-10 pick this year before he suffered a torn ACL.
