NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have agreed to terms with linebacker Rashaan Evans, the team’s first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Evans, who starred at Alabama, was selected 22nd overall by the Titans.
Evans played in 53 games for the Crimson Tide, where he totaled 152 tackles, 15 sacks and 19 quarterback hits.
He was a full-time starter in 2017, when he tallied 74 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, six sacks and seven quarterback hits while helping lead Alabama to a national title.
Evans took the field last Friday for the first time in the team’s rookie minicamp.
The Titans have now reached deals with three of the four players from their draft class. Last Thursday, the Titans signed safety Dane Cruikshank (fifth round) and quarterback Luke Falk (sixth round).
Former Boston College edge rusher Harold Landry, the team’s second-round pick, remains unsigned.
