So a bit of good news today, Jayon Brown is returning to the Titans on a 1-year deal according to Tom Pelissero:
LB Jayon Brown returning to the #Titans on a 1-year deal worth $5.25M, per source. Turned down other offers to return to revamped Titans D and reset his budding market prior to his elbow injury last season.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 17, 2021
The market for Jayon must have been considerably softer than he and his agent were expecting. There really isn’t another reason that he would take this deal. I guess it is because of the elbow injury he suffered last season. This is very much a “bet on yourself” type of deal.
This does make the defense that much more intriguing this year. There were very few players that played well on that side of the ball last year. Brown was one of them. I very much expected him to be playing elsewhere in 2021.
We are just moments away from the new league year officially starting. There will most likely be a few moves announced that we haven’t yet heard about. Be sure and check back here throughout the day.
