right here. **More ...**'s Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Tennessee Titans have agreed to a deal with guard Chance Warmack, according to a source who has spoken with the player. It's a four-year contract worth $12,166,646 with a fifth-year option and includes offset language.

Warmack's signing bonus is $7,228,472. He'll receive $5 million at time of signing and get the rest by the end of 2013, a tradeoff for offsets, according to Rapoport.

ESPN's Adam Schefter had the first report on the agreement.

Warmack held out for five days as the sides attempted to work out issues over offset language, a common sticking point for first-round picks under the new collective bargaining agreement. Ultimately, the Titans got their way.

When Sunday began, Warmack, Dee Milliner and Jonathan Cooper all counted as top-10 picks without deals. The latter two players signed Sunday, leaving Warmack -- the 10th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft -- as the lone holdout.

Warmack can be expected at Titans practice as soon as Tuesday.

The Titans made upgrading the interior of their line a major priority this offseason. The additions of Warmack and free-agent acquisition Andy Levitre can turn an area of weakness into one of strength overnight.
