In the wake of Harold Landry’s ankle injury from Saturday, Titans’ general manager Jon Robinson has made a move to bolster his depth on the edge. According to Jeff Zrebiec, the Titans are finalizing a deal for linebacker Kamalei Correa.
Looks like Correa to Titans is going to get done, sources tell @TheAthleticBAL— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) August 28, 2018
My first thought here — the Harold Landry injury is somewhat serious.
Correa was a second round selection of the Baltimore Ravens in 2016. He’s struggled to find the field since entering the league and has yet to record a sack. The third year player has just 18 career tackles. The Ravens have actually played him on the inside and on the outside, but Correa has yet to find a true home.
While the production isn’t there, Robinson had to make a move to replace the depth lost at outside linebacker. Correa is still young and could benefit from a change of scenery. He recorded 19 sacks over his last two seasons at Boise State, so the college production certainly wasn’t lacking.
Correa returns to his old defensive coordinator in Dean Pees, who will try to jumpstart his career as a reserve linebacker.
UPDATE: The Titans are sending a 2019 6th rounder to the Ravens. Done deal.
