Chance Warmack is now officially a Tennessee Titan, and says he is eager for his first official practice of his NFL career, which will come tonight.
“I’m ready to go. I’m happy to be here and glad we worked everything out. I’m ready for some football,” said Warmack, who agreed to a four-year contract worth just over $12 million on Monday, making him the last first-round pick to sign his rookie contract.
Warmack said he simply tried to stay out of the fray and let his agent, Roosevelt Barnes handle the negotiations.
“It was my first time doing it, I didn’t really know what was going on,” Warmack said. “My agent did a good job as far as informing me of what was going on. My parents stuck with me, helping me to get along with it, and everything worked out.”
Warmack said he spent his time waiting in Tuscaloosa at the University of Alabama working out.
Now that he is officially a Titan, he is expected to be thrown right into the fray at right guard as the likely starter, leaving Fernando Velasco and Rob Turner to battle for the starting spot at center, along with Brian Schwenkie, who is still out a few more days with a hamstring injury.
