(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Two-time Pro Bowl safety Michael Griffin agreed to a multi-year contract with the Tennessee Titans Tuesday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Titans placed the franchise tag on the five-year NFL veteran in March, which would have guaranteed him a contract of $6.2 million.
“There was no pressure at all,” Griffin said of negotiations. “I just continued to play football, wasn’t really talking to my agent. I think both sides, the organization and myself handled it great, kept it within the organization and not public.”
The Titans selected Griffin out of Texas with the 19th overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft. In 80 career games, the 27-year-old has 17 interceptions and two sacks.
