Tennessee took Chance Warmack with the 10th Overall pick last year out of Alabama, as Warmack became the first guard since 1997 to be taken as a Top-10 pick.
The Titans were already five days into training camp while Warmack and his agent went back and forth with the Titans over offset language in the contract. The deal will be worth just over $12 million with all of it being guaranteed, although the offset language was put in the contract. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com did an excellent job last year describing the offset language that often holds up rookie contracts.
The offensive line has been a major priority for the Titans in the offseason, they signed Andy Levitre away from the Bills to start on the left side. Warmack and Levitre should shore up the inside of the Titans offensive line and help open holes for Chris Johnson.
All 2013 NFL Draft picks are now signed with their teams as training camp is under way, and we are now just six days away from the first pre season game of the year.
Time to get to work! #Blessed
