Shaun Phillips agrees with Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with linebacker Shaun Phillips, the team announced Thursday.

It is a two-year deal worth $6 million, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The 10-year veteran ranks ninth with 79½ sacks over the past decade in the NFL. He also has forced 22 forced fumbles in 152 career games with his first nine seasons in San Diego. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound linebacker played all 16 games for Denver last season with 10 sacks, 36 tackles, an interception and two forced fumbles.

General manager Ruston Webster says Phillips is a flexible linebacker who adds to the Titans' pass rush with his play and experience.

Phillips, 32, has missed only eight games in his career. He becomes the second linebacker Tennessee has signed this month who played for Denver last season, joining Wesley Woodyard.
