Tennessee Titans were scheduled to meet with former Denver Broncos defensive end Shaun Phillips today, and now it seems they have secured his signature.
The move acts as a big move for the Titans as they look to improve their defense ahead of the 2014 NFL season.
Salary cap issues led to the Broncos allowing the powerful defender the opportunity to test free agency, and now it's understood Phillips has found his perfect home in Tennessee.
The deal is said to be worth $6 million over the course of a two-year contract, and it's clear that the Titans believe the 32-year-old has plenty left in the tank.
Fox Sports NFL insider Mike Garafolo posted on Twitter today the news of the move.
"Shaun Phillips agrees to a 2-year deal worth a max of $6 million with the Titans, source says."
Some of the best years of his career came whilst he was at the San Diego Chargers, but he did reclaim some of his best moments last season with ten sacks for the Broncos.
Phillips has career stats of 508 combined tackles, 79.5 sacks, seven interceptions, two touchdowns and 22 forced fumbles in 10 years, and he will improve Tennessee’s pass rush instantly.
