The Tennessee Titans finally agreed to a four-year deal with first-round pick Chance Warmack on his rookie contract, one that contains offset language to protect the club in the even he is released before the deal is played out.
Warmack missed four practices and five days of camp, but by the NFL’s slotting system is scheduled to make just over $12 million with more of the money guaranteed over the life of the contract.
Warmack is expected to be on the practice field for the Titans when they resume practicing on Tuesday. However, it is not known how much work he will do in his first day.
Warmack, the 10th overall pick in the draft, was the last player in the first round to sign his rookie contract, just hours after No. 9 pick Dee Milliner of the New York Jets completed his rookie deal late Sunday night.
The Titans are expected to pencil Warmack into the starting lineup at right guard very soon. For the first few days of camp, Fernando Velasco and Rob Turner have alternated between center and right guard at practices.
Those two will now be in the center mix along with Brian Schwenkie, who is currently bothered by a hamstring injury.
