Receiver Gage re-signs with Titans

Justin Gage will remain with the Tennessee Titans after agreeing to a new contract Wednesday.

Gage was one of the Titans’ key free agents the club had wanted to keep as it built its core group of players.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Gage was signed last season by Tennessee to a one-year deal and enjoyed a career year, catching 55 passes for 750 yards after coming over from the Chicago Bears.

“Justin is a player who made the most of an opportunity and we expect him to be a significant contributor to our offensive success,” said Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt. “He can play outside or inside, has the ability to make tough catches and should continue to grow as a receiver as he and Vince play together more.”

Of Gage’s 55 receptions in 2007, 45 of them – 81.8 percent – resulted in first downs, a figure that ranked behind only Terrell Owens and Brandon Stokley in the NFL.

Good move, he turned out to be our best wr last season. Now if we can get a top receiver in FA or the draft and sign Crumpler, we will be in very good shape on offense.
