Kearse becomes a Titan

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with defensive end Jevon Kearse on Thursday. The 31-year-old was the Defensive Rookie of the Year after Tennessee made him the 16th overall pick in the 1999 draft.

He had 47.5 sacks with the Titans and made three Pro Bowl teams, but left in 2004 for a free-agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kearse never achieved the success with the Eagles that he did in Tennessee, totaling just 22 sacks and suffering a knee injury that cost him much of the 2006 season.

He was benched toward the end of the 2007 season and released as a salary cap cut last week.
