NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Titans are renaming the center Ben Jones to a two-year contract worth $ 14 million, a source told ESPN.
Jones has started 96 of 97 games in the regular season since joining the Titans in 2016. He was selected by the Houston Texans in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Jones’ row of 120 consecutive games played, including 88 starts, ended due to an injury in Week 9 of the 2019 season. At the time, he was a draw in the longest active streak among NFL offensive linemen – and first among all centers – with former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz.
“His performance on the court, his availability and endurance are something I will always admire,” said Titans coach Mike Vrabel at the NFL Scouting Combination. “Continuity is important and I think Ben does a fantastic job of always being available. Regardless of his level of play, his availability and endurance is something I have respected the most.”
In other moves, the Titans’ tight-end Geoff Swaim re-signed for a one-year deal. They also signed former Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Jamarco Jones to a two-year deal worth $ 5.75 million, including $ 3.15 million guaranteed.
