The Tennessee Titans locked up star defensive lineman Jurrell Casey to a multi-year contract extension Wednesday afternoon.

The deal is reportedly worth $36 million over four years with $20 million guaranteed.

Casey had a breakout season in 2013 with a career high 10.5 sacks, 90 tackles and 10 quarterback pressures.

“We are excited to come to an agreement on an extension with Jurrell,” said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. “This is something Jurrell has earned not only with his play on the field but his work ethic as well. We appreciate Jurrell’s professionalism through this process and look forward to many good years to come.”

Casey has logged 45 starts during his Titans career and has registered 16.0 sacks, 244 tackles, 22 quarterback pressures, 14 quarterback pressures, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Casey was entering the final season of his original rookie contract after being drafted by the Titans in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
