Tennessee Titans free agent defensive lineman Austin Johnson agreed to a contract with the New York Giants on Thursday, according to multiple reports.
Johnson, a second-round draft pick of the Titans in 2016, had 23 tackles last season as part of Tennessee’s defensive line rotation.
Johnson is the second player on the defensive line that the Titans have lost this season, as they traded five-time Pro Bowl selection Jurrell Casey to the Denver Broncos last season.
Johnson had 2.5 career sacks in four years with the Titans, and totaled 83 tackles in those four seasons.
Johnson is the second Titans player this season to sign as a free agent with the Giants, joining running back Dion Lewis in New York.
Titans add two players
The Titans also announced on Wednesday that they had agreed to terms with former Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo. Sambrailo is expected to provide depth at the position with Dennis Kelly likely moving into the starting lineup to replace free agent departure Jack Conklin at right tackle.
Tennessee also agreed to terms with backup linebacker Nick Dzubnar, who previously played for the Los Angeles Chargers. Dzubnar is expected to be a mainstay of the Titans special teams units.
