Former Raiders LB Wimbley expected to sign with Titans

Kamerion Wimbley #96 of the Oakland Raiders tackles Vince Young #10 of the Tennessee Titans

The Raiders dumped Kamerion Wimbley and his bloated $11 million salary last Friday just before he was set to cash in on a sizable amount of guarantees ($17.5 million to be exact). He immediately became a top free agent on the market. Now he is expected to sign a 5-year deal with the Tennessee Titans according to Adam Caplan.

The Titans were eager to nab a top defensive end and missed out on Mario Williams who signed with the Buffalo Bills. Wimbley has played outside linebacker his entire career but has always been known as a pass rushing specialist so the move to 4-3 defensive end is a logical fit for him.

With the Titans' aggressive pursuit of Wimbley, his contract should be a sizable one that could approach his contract numbers with the Raiders. Whatever the 2012 figure is, Wimbley will receive plus $6.5 million in guaranteed money from the Raiders. Just the Raiders guaranteed money is about a million dollars per sack he had last season. Add what he will likely get from the Titans and he could get about a million for each of his sacks the past two seasons (16).
