NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Former Broncos defensive end Shaun Phillips has signed on to play for the Tennessee Titans in a multi-year contract, the Titans confirmed.
The 2-year deal was worth a maximum of $6 million, according to a source who talked to Fox Sports 1 NFL insider Mike Garafolo.
"Yes it's true I'm taking my bowling game to Cashville," Phillips tweeted Thursday.
"Shaun is an athletic pass rusher, who has been a productive player his entire career," said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. "His flexibility is an asset as well -- being raised as a 3-4 linebacker and having success in as a 4-3 end last year. He will add to our mix of pass rushers and improves that group from a production and experience standpoint."
A 10-year NFL veteran, Phillips has totaled 79.5 sacks, 22 forced fumbles and a 2010 Pro Bowl selection during his 152-game NFL career. His sack total ranks ninth among NFL players over the last 10 seasons.
Last year, Phillips played in all 16 games for the Broncos and posted 10 sacks, 36 tackles, one interception, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles. It was the third time in his career that he registered a double-digit sack total (2006, 2010, 2013).
Before joining the Broncos, Phillips spent the first nine seasons (2004-2012) of his career with the San Diego Chargers. He played in 136 games in a Chargers uniform and ranks second in franchise history in sacks (69.5). He posted a career-high sack total (11.5) in 2006, a career-high and NFL-best seven forced fumbles in 2009 and a Pro Bowl selection in 2010, after an 11-sack season.
Phillips was a fourth-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Chargers. He played his college football at Purdue, where he left as the school's all-time leader in sacks (33.5).
