We finally have some Tennessee Titans news in free agency. Adam Schefter is reporting that the Titans have agreed to terms with former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien:
Former Jags S Johnathan Cyprien is going to do a deal today after 4pm with the Titans, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2017
Cyprien was a 2nd round pick by the Jaguars in 2013. He only has 2 interceptions in his NFL career, but he is not a guy the Titans will be bringing in to play center field. That will be Kevin Byard’s job.
John Cyprien earned the highest run defense grade of all safeties in 2016 (98.8). #Titans https://t.co/z7j0SofLQg— Peter Reitz (@peterlreitz) March 9, 2017
A lot of people have been giving the Titans a safety like Jamal Adams in mock drafts with the #5 overall pick. I will still need to see the terms to this deal, but my guess is it will eliminate safety from the consideration there unless there is a guy that they are just absolutely in love with.
I am still working to confirm that the picture above is just after Cyprien heard the news that he didn’t have to play for the Jaguars anymore. Stay tuned for updates....
