Orakpo agrees to terms with Tennessee Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The agent for Brian Orakpo says the former Washington Redskins outside linebacker has agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans.

Ben Dogra of Relativity Sports said Orakpo has agreed on a four-year deal worth up to $35 million, with a base of $31 million. Dogra said that Orakpo is "really happy to be a Tennessee Titan."

ESPN first reported that Orakpo had agreed to terms.

Orakpo, a former first-round pick from Texas, spent his first six seasons with the Redskins.

Orakpo has 40 career sacks and is a three-time Pro Bowl selection, but he played just seven games last season before tearing his right pectoral muscle. He also has twice torn the pectoral muscle near his left shoulder.
