The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with LB Sean Spence on a one-year contract.


Spence (5-11, 231) has 31 games of NFL experience, including 13 starts with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last season, he totaled 34 tackles, one sack and two special teams stops in 15 games. For his NFL career, he has tallied 86 tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery. He was the Steelers Ed Block Courage Award recipient in 2014, after overcoming a devastating knee injury that caused him to miss two seasons. As a rookie, he injured his knee in the final preseason game and was placed on injured reserve for 2012 campaign and on “reserve - physically unable to perform” in 2013.


Spence was a third-round pick by the Steelers in the 2012 NFL Draft from the University of Miami. With the Hurricanes, he was a four-year starter, who registered 318 tackles and 10.5 sacks during his career.

Terms of the deal are reportedly one-year for $2.5 million dollars. If those figures are correct, that is a very cap friendly deal for a player who can provide depth behind both Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard inside along with contributing with speed on special teams.
