NASHVILLE – The Titans have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert.
Gilbert was slated to be an exclusive rights free agent in March. He's now officially under contract for 2020.
Gilbert initially joined the Titans in August 2019 via a trade with the Green Bay Packers, who acquired him as an undrafted free agent in 2016.
In 2019, Gilbert played in 11 games for the Titans, with five starts, and he recorded 24 tackles, seven quarterback pressure, and a sack.
With the Packers in 2018, Gilbert (6-3, 261) played in all 16 games for the first time in his career and recorded 44 tackles (36 solo), six tackles for a loss, 2½ sacks, a fumble recovery, four quarterback hits, 15 QB pressures (No. 2 on the team) and two passes defensed while adding two tackles on special teams.
Gilbert played in two games and registered three tackles (two solo), a sack, five QB pressures and three QB hits in 2017.
Gilbert played collegiately at Arizona, where he started 47 of 57 games and registered 143 tackles (89 solo), 27 tackles for a loss, 14 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Last month, the Titans also agreed to one-year extensions with receiver Cameron Batson and tight end Anthony Firkser.
