NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – On the first day of free agency, as expected, the Tennessee Titans addressed defense first, signing safety Johnathan Cyprien.

The Titans confirmed the deal Friday after News 2 learned Thursday the two sides have agreed on a contract.

The 6 foot, 217 pound Cyprien was drafted with the first pick of the second round back in 2013 and was a steady force for the Jaguars playing 60 of 64 games over four seasons.

Cyprien is known as a quality run stopper and the numbers back that up. He has racked up over 100 tackles in each of those seasons.

With Cyprien signing, it appears less likely that Rashad Johnson and Damion Stafford re-sign in Tennessee.
