Titans extend Jurrell Casey’s contract

The Tennessee Titans announced an extension for defensive end Jurrell Casey on Friday as players reported for training camp.

Casey has made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons for the Titans, and was originally a third-round pick from Southern California in 2011.

Casey’s deal was reportedly a four-year, $60 million extension, per Adam Schefter. Casey’s agent Drew Rosenhaus retweeted Schefter’s information on the deal.

Casey has 33 career sacks and has been a mainstay of the Titans defense since his rookie season. In six years with the Titans, Casey has missed just two games.

Last season in 15 games, Casey had five sacks and 44 total tackles.

Perhaps his most productive season came in 2013 when he had 10.5 sacks and was credited with 55 tackles.

Casey was scheduled to make $5.9 million in base salary this season and $6.831 million in 2018 under the $36 million contract extension he signed in 2014.

“A lot of things played into that. It is a unique situation,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Casey being extended in the off-season.
