NASHVILLE – The Titans have agreed to terms with outside linebacker Rashad Weaver, one of the team's fourth-round draft picks.
Weaver, who played at Pittsburgh, was taken with the 135th pick in the NFL Draft.
After missing the 2019 season with an injury, Weaver exploded back on the scene in 2020 while earning consensus All‐America status last season with the Panthers from four of the NCAA's recognized selectors: Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and Walter Camp Football Foundation.
Weaver (6-4, 259) was a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (presented to the national defensive player of the year) after starting in nine games at defensive end. In 2020, Weaver totaled 35 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He led the ACC in sacks per game (0.83 avg.) and tackles for loss per game (1.61 avg.).
In 2018, Weaver started all 14 games at defensive end and compiled 47 tackles, 14 TFLs, 6.5 sacks, four pass breakups, three fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.
The Titans have now reached deals with six of their eight draft picks, as only third-rounders Elijah Molden and Monty Rice remain unsigned.
