Titans agree to terms with DaQuan Jones, guard Josh Kline
NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans keep wrapping up their own players with defensive lineman DaQuan Jones the latest to reach agreement on a new deal keeping him on the roster.
The Titans announced Wednesday that they have agreed on a multi-year deal with Jones after reaching a new deal to keep right guard Josh Kline and signing defensive end David King to a one-year deal earlier in the day.
Tennessee also announced they tendered a contract to left guard Quinton Spain, a restricted free agent.
Financial terms on the deals were not released.
A fourth-round pick out of Penn State in 2014, Jones has started 45 of his 51 games, and the 6-foot-4, 322-pound lineman was playing his best with a career-high 3 ½ sacks before tearing a bicep that put him on injured reserve Dec. 4 .
General manager Jon Robinson claimed Kline off waivers from New England in September 2016. Kline has started 30 games at right guard for Tennessee on a line that allowed the third fewest sacks (63) and blocked for the third most rushing yards (4,020) in the NFL.
An undrafted free agent from Kent State, Kline started 18 of 33 games in New England and won the 2015 Super Bowl.
The Titans agreed to terms Tuesday with a pair of former Patriots . The deals with cornerback Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis will be signed once free agency begins.
Spain, undrafted out of West Virginia, has started 33 of his 35 games played over the past three seasons for the Titans.
King signed a one-year deal after being poised to become an exclusive rights free agent after playing seven games with four tackles and a sack for Tennessee. The Titans picked him up last September in a trade with Kansas City, and King was a seventh-round pick by Philadelphia in 2013 out of Oklahoma.
