Jurrell Casey signs extension in Tennessee
- Sources have reported that the Tennessee Titans have signed Jurrell Casey to a four year contract extension worth $60.4 million.
- Casey is coming off another strong season where he was PFF’s 10th highest rated interior defensive lineman (4-3 DTs + 3-4 DEs) with an overall grade of 87.1 in 2016. His run stop percentage (8.2%) and pass rush productivity (8.9) both ranked in the top-10 for his position.
- Casey has been remarkably consistent and durable throughout his six year NFL career, missing only 2 games and posting a grade of at least 82.2 every season.
- In fact, in Casey’s last four seasons he’s produced QB hurries at an almost mechanical rate (36, 31, 36, 36), placing him in the top-11 per season amongst defensive interior lineman.
