Titans re-sign veterans Klug, Palmer

The Tennessee Titans re-signed a pair of their own free agents before Thursday’s new league year opened.
The Titans brought back defensive end Karl Klug, who was a fifth-round pick in 2011. Klug has been a valuable part of the defensive line as a pass rush specialist. He suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon last year late in the season and is recovering from surgery in December, ending a streak of 94 consecutive games played for the Titans.
Klug had 1.5 sacks, 25 tackles and 18 quarterback hurries in 14 games this past season for the Titans.
Tennessee also re-signed backup linebacker Nate Palmer, who was a core member of their special teams unit in 2016. Palmer was claimed off waivers from the Green Bay Packers last off-season, and also showed value in providing depth at inside linebacker.
Palmer, originally a sixth-round pick of the Packers in 2013, played in 14 games for the Titans had had a team-high 12 special teams tackles last year.
Speaking of special teams, an area the Titans made a point to upgrade this off-season, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported that the Titans had agreed to deal with linebacker Daren Bates, formerly of the Oakland Raiders for three years and $6 million. Bates is regarded as a quality special teams performer.
