Titans Expected To Sign LB Will Compton

Will Compton is on track to return to the Titans. The veteran linebacker is expected to re-sign with the team he played for in 2018, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets.

The Titans brought in Compton for a workout earlier this week. He has spent the offseason as a free agent, following a nine-game stay with the Raiders last season.

Best known for his five-year run with Washington from 2013-17, Compton passed through Tennessee next. The Titans used him mostly as a depth player in 12 games during the 2018 season, following the sides’ one-year agreement. It should be expected the forthcoming Titans-Compton pact will also be a one-year agreement. Compton made two starts with the 2018 Titans and was a Raiders first-stringer four times last season.

Tennessee did not re-sign longtime starter Wesley Woodyard but returns Rashaan Evans and Jayon Brown. Compton, who will turn 31 in three weeks, would represent a proven veteran backup at this stage of his career.
