The #Titans have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal with #Broncos DE Shaun Phillips, per sources

Shaun Phillips agrees to a 2-year deal worth a max of $6 million with the Titans, source says.


Edit: Seems like a good deal for a guy who has had 19 sacks in the last two years.

Adios Wimbley!

Love this signing. Brings experience and proven PR who's played as a 3-4 OLB.

2 years, $6M. Not a bad deal. Wish they would have done the same type of work with guys like Shonn Greene and not overpaid. Think the value compared to deals that Peppers, Allen, etc got is pretty good.

I love this signing. Adding a productive vet to a position of need is always great.

And a side note. We could go a number of ways with our 1st round pick.

He was one of the guys I wanted a couple weeks ago. Huge get, imo. Gives us legit OLB depth and a guy who can start if needed. Could have a scenario that he and Barr split reps.

Love it! We got a productive pass rusher for a relatively cheap deal.

#Titans still hope to keep Wimbley. Don't know if they will at current high price. Phillips, Wimbley, Ayers, maybe Morgan. Not bad as OLBs


I would love to keep Wimbley at a lower price. He is a much better OLB than DE.

Love it.

This move tells me that they are going to go BPA at #11. I still get a sneaky suspicion that Barr will be there at #11 and we will pass on him.

Also it makes up a bit, at least in my mind, for the head scratching decision to sign Wesley Woodyard.


Assuming Mack, Bridgewater, Bortles, Clowney, Matthews and Robinson are all gone. My number 1 choice at #11 now is Eric Ebron

Same!

I always thought we wasted him by not having any 3-4 looks when all we heard was hybrid this 3-4 that... Hopefully he takes that paycut.

Regardless I still think we will take the BPA with our 1st.

Phillips has been a STUD his whole career and this is a wonderful signing. Brings leadership, a winning mentality, and is a vet. Way more comfortable with him than Wimbley.


Phillips-Brown-Woodyard-Ayers?

I would still love to get Barr or Mack. Having a good, with the potential to be great, pass rusher is something. He could come in to a role where he could learn from Phillips, Wimbley, and Ayers, and be a situational pass rusher for a year or two.

Nice to see a good signing after some questionable at best moves the past week or two.

Not sure if we still go for Barr now.

It wouldn't surprise me if we did go Barr at all. Put him in an Aldon Smith role and use Phillips on the other snaps. But if we do pass on Barr it will be for a legit reason.

Exactly which is why I'm really not worried one way or the other. We're in a unique spot with the hiring of Lou Spanos that we know pretty much everything there is to know about Barr as a prospect. So, if we don't pick him in the first that says a lot about what we think his potential is going forward in the pros.

I think one of the best things about this signing is that it doesn't make us feel "forced" to pick Barr just due to need. We have a very solid veteran starter at that spot now with Phillips and solid depth if we decide to keep Wimbley on a reduced salary. This move gives us a lot of versatility heading into the draft. We have the freedom to go BPA at 11 or we could trade back in the first land Nix and draft Attaochu in the second and grab our running back Sankey in the 3rd. That would actually be a pretty sweet scenario if I do say so myself.
