With the new NFL calendar year, rosters throughout the league have been in shuffle mode with trades and free agent signings.
Jurrell Casey has been a staple of the Tennessee Titans’ defense for the bulk of the past decade.
Last week, Casey was traded to the Denver Broncos for a seventh round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
He finished 2019 with 61 tackles and recorded two sacks in the Titans’ upset win at No. 1 Baltimore.
Throughout his career, he’s recorded 493 combined tackles, with 325 solo tackles, 84 of which have been tackles for loss.
Casey joins the Broncos in what’s been a busy off-season full of roster shuffling.
Denver has filled holes at corner, offensive line and now with the Casey acquisition, defensive line.
With Casey headed to the Mile High City, the Titans will get a boost from edge rusher Vic Beasley Jr.
Casey’s departure also freed up nearly $10 million under the salary cap.
In addition to trading Casey last week, the Titans placed a franchise tag on Derrick Henry and signed quarterback Ryan Tannehill to a four-year, $118 million deal.
With the money freed up by Casey’s departure, the Titans hope to work out a longterm deal with Henry in the coming weeks.
