The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with defensive end Ropati Pitoitua.

Titans General Manager Ruston Webster said that Pitoitua gives the team the big body they were looking for at the defensive end position.

“He has played a number of games and been productive,” he added. “He should be an asset for us in the run game at end and also could give us flexibility on game days with the ability to kick inside for some snaps.”

Pitoitua, at 6'8″ and 315 pounds, has 37 games of NFL experiences with both the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs.

He played one season with Kansas City last year and started 10 out of the 15 games he played with 32 tackles, two sacks, five tackles for loss and one forced fumble.

Pitoitua registered 22 games of experience in his first three years with the New York Jets, who he originally joined as an undrafted free agent in 2009 from Washington State University.
