Kearse agrees to terms, set to make return to Titans

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms on a multiyear contract with Jevon Kearse on Thursday, and coach Jeff Fisher said they plan to play the 31-year-old defensive end as much as possible.

The Titans had a hole at defensive end after losing free agents Antwan Odom and Travis LaBoy. On Thursday, they found at least one big replacement by bringing back Kearse to the team where he started his NFL career.

"Not only is this an opportunity to finish where he started, but he also has a lot left. This is not just a nostalgic thing to bring back the old days. He's here to fill a spot and to help us win football games and knock the passer down. We were very excited with the results of the physical and very excited to get things put together as quickly as we did," Fisher said.

Kearse was the Defensive Rookie of the Year after Tennessee made him the 16th overall pick in the 1999 draft. The Titans reached the Super Bowl that season.

Titans let this trash back in after he left them for money a coupe years back... Thats a bad move by the Titains

He didn't walk away, he was traded for a 2nd round pick (ouch). No matter, it's still a bad move by the Titans unless he's the number 5 receiver.
