Broncos acquire DT Casey from Titans

The Denver Broncos acquired five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey from the Tennessee Titans for a seventh-round draft pick in 2020, the teams announced Thursday.Casey, 30, has spent his entire nine-year career with the Titans and earned his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl selection in 2019 after registering 44 tackles and five sacks in 14 starts.”Jurrell Casey is a top-flight defensive lineman who has been among the most productive players in the NFL at his position,” Broncos president of football operations John Elway said in a statement. “What stands out with Jurrell is how hard he plays, providing a consistent interior pass rush and coupling that with a strong presence against the run.”In addition to being a perennial Pro Bowler, Jurrell is a respected locker room and community presence who brings strong leadership qualities to the Broncos.”Casey has three years remaining on his contract and is due $11.25 million in base salary in 2020, $11.68 million in 2021 and $13.25 million in 2022, per Spotrac and Overthecap.com. None of those years are guaranteed, though $5.25 million of his 2020 salary will guarantee this week.”It has taken me a few hours to process & get on here, because y’all know I love TN & especially my Titans Fans,” Casey wrote Thursday on Twitter. “Nine years ago the Titans took a chance on me & looking back I wouldn’t change a thing. We went through rough times (winning max 3 games multiple seasons) to good times (making it to the AFC Championship Game)! Countless volunteer events getting to meet the awesome people that make TN so great.”I would be lying if I said I wasn’t confused & hurt, but it’s a business! But, I am comforted with every text, call, comment, tweet + DM I have received. Y’all are showing your boy some real love & encouragement!”
