Brandon Boldens contract extension is the second big news of the day, with the Titans agreeing to pay him $70.5 million over the next five years.
It was a tough one to make, with Bolden signing a five year, $60 million deal in the summer of 2014 and the Titans having yet to officially make him a priority free agent.
The Titans could have had an easy time landing him this summer but they had to be cautious when signing Boldens as he is expected to earn $5 million per season.
The contract also has a cap hit of $11.25 million per year, which is the highest for a running back.
The Titans are set to make a huge move in free agency, bringing back three of their most productive players with a few more still on the team’s roster.
Boldens is expected back soon, while Ryan Mathews, DeMarco Murray, and DeMarco King will all hit the open market this summer.
The 2017 Titans are coming off a disappointing season, but the roster is loaded with talent.
They have a slew of top talent, including DeMarco Alexander, Derrick Henry, Marcus Mariota, T.J. Yeldon, Marcus Williams, Zach Zenner, Corey Davis, Corey Grant, Kendall Wright, and Tyler Kroft.
The roster also features rookie running back David Cobb and veteran pass rusher Derrick Morgan.
The 2016 Titans were the best team in the league this season, and they will be looking to build on that success.
