The Titans have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Brice McCain, according to agent David Canter (via Twitter). Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports (via Twitter) that McCain will be signing a two-year, $5MM contract with Tennessee.

McCain, 29, signed with the Dolphins last March after spending five seasons in Houston and one in Pittsburgh. He started 10 games and played 735 defensive snaps for the Dolphins in 2015, picking up an interception to go along with 39 tackles. However, McCain lasted just one season with the team, as Miami opted to part ways with him last week in order to create $2.5MM in cap savings.
As PFR’s Dallas Robinson wrote in his preview of the Titans’ offseason last month, cornerback will be an area the team figures to prioritize this winter. Dallas suggested that it might be worthwhile for Tennessee to spend big at the position in free agency, and while McCain is hardly the big-money signing we envisioned, his addition doesn’t preclude the club from pursuing other corners next week.
Prior to agreeing to a deal with the Titans, McCain paid a visit to Tennessee, and also met with the Buccaneers. The Steelers were said to have interest in hosting McCain for a visit as well, though it doesn’t appear that he made it to Pittsburgh.
