Titans agree to terms with DE Shaun Phillips

The Titans have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with former Broncos defensive end Shaun Phillips.

The deal is worth roughly $6 million with $2.5 million in guarantees, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Phillips has played linebacker in a 3-4 and also defensive end in a 4-3, which should make him an ideal fit for new Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton's hybrid scheme.

"Shaun is an athletic pass rusher, who has been a productive player his entire career," said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. "His flexibility is an asset as well – being raised as a 3-4 linebacker and having success in as a 4-3 end last year. He will add to our mix of pass rushers and improves that group from a production and experience standpoint."

The Titans also hosted former Colts offensive lineman Mike McGlynn on Thursday.
