Titans Sign Defensive End Wimbley to Multi-Year Contract


Former Raiders linebacker Kamerion Wimbley upgrades Tennessee's pass rush and overall depth on the defensive line.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. --The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with defensive end Kamerion Wimbley on a multi-year contract.

"He is an excellent athlete, who has natural pass rusher traits – ability to bend, get low and has a nice feel for using his hands," said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. "I liked him coming out of Florida State as 4-3 defensive end and he will return to that role with us.  In addition to that, his time as a 3-4 rusher gives him added versatility."

"Kamerion has been a very productive player in this league and is a good pro," added Titans head coach Mike Munchak. "On passing downs over the last few years, he has played with his hand down in Oakland and he will playing full-time at defensive end for us. I feel like he is coming into the best years of his career and his skills will help us pressure the passer."

A six-year NFL veteran, Wimbley (6-4, 255) has totaled 42.5 career sacks in 94 regular season starts. He played the last two seasons with the Oakland Raiders, after starting his career with the Cleveland Browns (2006-09). In his two seasons with the Raiders, he registered 32 starts and 16 sacks, including seven last year with one interception.

As a rookie in Cleveland, he totaled 11 sacks, which was a Browns rookie record and the second highest that season by an NFL rookie. Wimbley racked up 26.5 sacks in his four seasons with the Browns.  

Wimbley was originally a first-round pick (13th overall) by the Cleveland Browns in the 2006 NFL Draft from Florida State.
