After trading for Reggie Gilbert last year, the Titans used him as a spot starter and a rotational presence. They reached an agreement to extend Gilbert for the 2020 season on Tuesday.
Gilbert was set to be an exclusive-rights free agent, so this will bypass that process. Tennessee traded a seventh-rounder to Green Bay for Gilbert in late August of last year.
The former UDFA out of Arizona finished with 22 tackles and a sack in his Titans debut season. Gilbert made five starts for a Tennessee team that lost Cameron Wake early in the season and played 27% of the Titans’ defensive snaps.
The soon-to-be 27-year-old edge defender will be eligible for restricted free agency in 2021.
