Addition of Cyprien begins makeover of Titans secondary

The makeover of the Tennessee Titans secondary has begun, as the club is poised to add safety Jonathan Cyprien in free agency.
The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the former Jacksonville Jaguars safety would be coming to the Titans, where he most likely will be paired with second-year pro Kevin Byard as the starting safety tandem.
Cyprien was a second round pick of the Jaguars in 2013 out of Florida International. In four years in Jacksonville, he developed a reputation as being solid in run coverage, as he posted a career high 96 tackles in 2016 and never had less than 77 tackles in any of his four seasons with the Jaguars.
Cyprien, however, had just two career interceptions in his four years with the Jaguars.
His acquisition begins the needed changes in the Titans secondary. Cyprien coming on board likely means that Daimion Stafford will not return as a free agent. The Titans appeared to have only minimal interest in retaining Stafford, who was a special teams captain last year.
The other safety from last season who is a free agent, veteran Rashad Johnson, had some interest in return to Tennessee, but is poised to test the market in free agency, which opens at 3 p.m. CST on Thursday.
