Kamerion Wimbley, Titans agree to 3-year, $9M deal

Veteran pass rusher Kamerion Wimbley is staying in Tennessee.

Just three days after the Titans asked Wimbley to accept a pay cut, the two sides agreed to a restructured contract worth $9 million over three years, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, per a source informed of the situation.

Wimbley originally was scheduled to earn $6 million in 2014. He has collected $15 million for just nine sacks over the past two seasons.

Relegated to a niche role as a situational pass rusher, Wimbley saw his snaps plummet from over 900 in 2012 to fewer than 400 last season.

A better fit as an outside linebacker as opposed to defensive end, Wimbley figures to compete with Shaun Phillips and Akeem Ayers for playing time in Ray Horton's 3-4 defense.

Keeping Wimbley should allow the Titans to concentrate on other positions early in next month's NFL draft.
