Report: Titans signing Bud Dupree

NFL: Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans are, in fact, signing Bud Dupree according to Ian Rapoport:

Imagine spending the whole year complaining about the Titans pass rush and then complaining about this signing. That seems insane to me!

The deal is a for $16.5 million according to Ian Rapoport:

Dupree has 19.5 sacks in the last two seasons.

It will be interesting to see what the total money is here. My guess is that the cap number will be really low in 2020 and that there will be some voidable years at the end of the deal. That is what the Titans need to make things work for this year.

I have been as critical of Jon Robinson as anyone, but I really like what he did here. Free agency should be used to make the team better. Fill holes in free agency and draft for value. This deal hits the biggest need the Titans have had for quite a while now.
