Titans, LB Woodyard agree on four-year deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  -- The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a multiyear deal with free-agent linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who spent the last six years with the Denver Broncos.

The deal is for four years at $16 million, FOX Sports 1 Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report.

After arriving in the NFL in 2008 as an undrafted free agent from Kentucky, Woodyard developed into a six-time team captain for the Broncos. During the 2012 season, Woodyard was the only player in the NFL to have at least 100 tackles, five sacks and three interceptions.

In a release announcing the move Friday, Titans general manager Ruston Webster said "Wesley is a player who has experience playing in both 3-4 and 4-3 systems, and in our new scheme he fits as one of the inside linebackers. He is smart and fast."

Webster also praised the 27-year-old Woodyard's leadership qualities and intangibles.
