The Tennessee Titans have added another veteran defensive player to the fold, agreeing to a deal with defensive tackle Sylvester Williams, per initial reports by both ESPN and Fox.
Williams, a former first-round pick of the Denver Broncos, will help to fill the void at nose tackle created when Al Woods was released just before the start of the new league year on Thursday.
Williams was a player that the Broncos declined a fifth-year option on, making him a free agent and able to test the market.
The Titans moved in and grabbed Williams, even though there was interest from the Broncos in re-signing him.
Williams had 29 tackles and one sack in 2016, as he started all 16 games at nose tackle for the Broncos defensive line.
He joins a Titans defensive line that has 2015 second-round pick Austin Johnson and 2016 undrafted rookie Antwaun Woods at the nose tackle position.
Williams was the Broncos first-round pick out of North Carolina in 2013.
