Four Teams Showed Interest in Harper

ColtPower has learned that multiple teams were in the hunt for Nick Harper prior to him signing his deal with the Titans on Wednesday. And we've even got the details of his contract inside...

Scout.com's Adam Caplan reports that free agent CB Nick Harper, who agreed to a contract with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday evening, signed the deal on Wednesday.

Harper, sources say, got about a $3 million signing bonus. The total of the deal is believed to be between $9-$10 million. But it was interesting to note that there are no incentives in the deal for Harper who turns 33 years old in September.

While the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings also showed interest in Harper, Tennessee was the team that offered him the best chance to start. Ironically, two of those starts annually will now come against his old teammates.

The New England Patriots also showed early interest at the start of free agency, but never followed up, which could mean they only had interest in Harper as a backup.

With the move, Harper becomes the third Colt to join Tennessee over the past year. Linebacker David Thornton headed south as an unrestricted free agent last year, and tight end Ben Hartsock signed with the Titans after he was released by the Colts in late October.
