It’s a one-year deal.
A five-year NFL veteran who played the past two seasons with the Jets, Farley played in all 16 games in 2020, and he made a pair of starts. He was credited with 21 tackles on the season, along with three passes defensed, in addition to his work on special teams.
This appears to be another special teams signing, seeing that Farley was a captain in that phase of the game for the Jets in 2020.
The Titans signed another special teams ace, former Steelers linebacker Ola Adeniyi last week.
We’ve mentioned here on this site that several key special teamers from last season are currently free agents — Daren Bates, Will Compton, Senorise Perry and Nick Dzubnar. The team also released Chris Milton earlier this offseason.
Several of these guys won’t be back in 2021.
Farley will likely be a special teams captain for the Titans this coming season.
