What would a Jurrell Casey contract look like?

What would the numbers look like?

The Tennessee Titans haven't finished signing their rookies, but they may be in contract talks with one of their best players.


If Jurrell Casey does re-sign, it would be likely be a deal for five or six years as most extensions are. Here are what some of the most recent "big" NFL DT extensions have looked like:

Name Max contract Gtd. contract Years
Kyle Williams $39 million $17 million 6
Vince Wilfork $22.5 $3 million 3
Geno Atkins $55 million $31 million 5

Williams and Wilfork are more space eaters, than penetrators so the best number to look at is Geno Atkins. The Bengals classic 3-tech has a contract that actually looks pretty reasonable for a team like the Titans without any money really committed long-term. Other than Jason McCourty, the team has no one eating up much cap space over the next two years. A front loaded deal that trails off after two years would make a lot of sense.

Obviously this is speculative, but this is the first domino that will need to fall next offseason and if the Titans could lock Casey down now they could have an exceptional head-start going into the next free agency period.

A 5-year, $50 million deal would be a great win for this front office.
