The Tennessee Titans are re-signing right guard Josh Kline to a four-year, $26 million deal with $12M guaranteed, a source told ESPN.
Kline, 28, performed well as a pass-blocking right guard protecting Marcus Mariota for his two seasons with the Titans after being picked up off waivers in 2016.
Kline has made the most of his career since signing as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots in 2013. He’s spent most of his career as a starter, bouncing between the left and right guard positions. He was a two-year starter for the Titans at right guard.
Kline started 43 of the 44 games he played for the Titans and Patriots over the last three seasons and 48 of the 63 games in his career.
Like most of the Titans’ offensive line, Kline took a step back in 2017 after performing well in 2016. Run blocking has never been his strength, but it was certainly a weakness in 2017.
