Titans Announce 3-Year Extension With Tony Brown

The Tennessee Titans have officially announced the three-year contract extension with restricted free agent defensive tackle Tony Brown.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

An undrafted free agent out of Memphis, Brown was tendered at the "First Round" level and had yet to sign his one-year tender that would have paid him a base salary of $2.621 million dollars this season.

Brown began his career with the Carolina Panthers in 2003, who waived him at the end of training camp, despite a 3-quarterback sack performance during the pre-season. After spending most of his rookie season on the Panthers' practice squad, the Miami Dolphins signed him to their active roster.

Waived by the Dolphins at the end of the 2004 pre-season, Brown was claimed by the San Francisco 49ers, where he made his NFL debut, starting four of 16 games and totaling 22 tackles and a quarterback sack. Brown was out of football in 2005, and was signed to a "Reserve/Futures" contract by the Carolina Panthers, where he appeared in one game before being waived.

Signed by the Titans in 2006, Brown became a regular in the team's tackle rotation before becoming a full-time starter in 2007. A starter in 48 of his 58 games with the Titans, Brown has 175 tackles, including 28 for a loss, 14.5 quarterback sacks, 4 forced fumbles, and 11 pass breakups.

Brown was a Pro Bowl alternate last season.
