The Tennessee Titans improved their pass rush Thursday agreeing to terms with veteran defensive end Shaun Phillips.

Phillips was in Nashville visiting with the Titans Thursday and quickly come to a two-year deal that will reportedly pay him as much as $6 million.

The 10-year veteran out of Purdue has 79.5 career sacks, including 10 last season for the AFC Champion Denver Broncos.  

“Shaun is an athletic pass rusher, who has been a productive player his entire career,” said Titans general manager Ruston Webster.

At six foot, three inches tall and 260 pounds, Phillips also has played much of his career in a 3-4 defense, which the Titans are transitioning to this season under new head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Phillips has had at least seven sacks in eight of his 10 NFL seasons and has caused 22 fumbles.
