UPDATE: Right guard Josh Kline has agreed to a new contract extension that will keep him with the Tennessee Titans.
The deal is for four years and worth $26 million, of which $12 million is in guaranteed money.
Kline’s return to the Titans, coupled with the team’s plans to offer a $1.905 million tender to restricted free agent left guard Quinton Spain means that Tennessee’s starting offensive line from a year ago is likely to return intact for 2018.
There still could be some players added to create competition in training camp, but Kline seemed to gain new life as a Titan when it was announced early on under new head coach Mike Vrabel that Tennessee would be switching to a zone blocking scheme.
Kline, claimed off waivers from the New England Patriots in 2016, became a starter in week three of that season when Chance Warmack went down with a hand injury that required surgery.
The Titans have been negotiating with Kline’s representatives for several days to work out an extension to keep him in the fold.
Also, the Titans agreed to a one-year deal to retain defensive lineman David King.
