Titans wrap up contract talks — finally — with first-round pick

Monday, July 29, 2013 at 11:24am

Monday was a day off for most of the Tennessee Titans.

For guard Chance Warmack it was the day he officially made it on to the training camp roster.

The first-round draft pick (10th overall) out of Alabama finally agreed to contract terms after having missed the first five days of training camp. According to multiple reports the deal is for $12.17 million over four years and $5 million the moment he signs.

"Time to get to work! #Blessed," Warmack wrote on his Twitter account shortly after the team announced the move.

Warmack, the projected starter at right guard, will be with the team Tuesday when workouts resume. He will be available to take part in all aspects of the practice.

“They changed that rule as far as having to wait three days, like having to work him in slow because we’re in pads, so the good thing is we won’t have to really, he can jump right in,” coach Mike Munchak said Friday. “We’ll obviously be smart with how we do that, but … we can get this thing rolling because we need to.”

He was the last of the 2013 first-round picks who had not agreed to terms.

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come in the future. He has signed a four year contract, which means he needs to live up to his part of the deal for four years. The Titans can use to renegotiate at some point in the future if they want him beyond the four years on this deal. He is going to make $12.17MM over 4 years (including over $5MM this year alone), which is enough to set him up for life already.

That is the problem with these guys. They can retire before the ever play a down with no worries about arrest, behaviors or anything else. NFL has created this debacle. Wallow in it. I am pretty done with pro sports period

Go Dores, Go Nashville a great place to live!
