NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey will play for the Titans for many years to come. The team announced a contract extension Friday, but did not give details.

Casey is a two-time Pro Bowler, who was voted the 2016 Tennessee Titans Walter Payton Man of the Year, for excellence on and off the field.

Casey was a third-round draft pick by the team in 2011.  In the 2016 season he had 51 tackles and five sacks.

In a few short years he’s become a regular at community events, and serves as the spokesman for United Way of Metropolitan Nashville.

The team reported to training camp Friday, and will start practice on Saturday.
