The team has asked pass rusher Kamerion Wimbley to take a pay cut, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports. Wimbley is weighing that option now, per Wyatt.

Wimbley has plenty of experience as a 3-4 outside linebacker, which should endear him to new defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

The problem is Wimbley's $6 million salary, prohibitive for a 30-year-old edge rusher whose snaps dropped from over 900 in 2012 to fewer than 400 in 2013.

With a more productive Shaun Phillips now in Nashville, Wimbley has no leverage coming off a combined 9.0 sacks over the past two seasons.

Unlike Johnson, though, he holds his Titans future in his own hands.
