Former USC defensive lineman Jurrell Casey has re-signed to a massive contract extension with the Tennessee Titans. The two-time Pro-Bowler inked a 4-year deal on Friday worth $60.4 million, with $40 million guaranteed.
The news was first reported by the team’s website on Twitter:

The Titans wanted to reward the former Trojan by offering him an extension two years before his current contract was set to expire. Casey, who starred for USC from 2008-10, has become a staple in the Nashville community.
“It is rare to do a contract extension early in this business,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson told the team’s official website. “But Jurrell is a unique player in that he was drafted here, has already done an extension with the team, is a standout in our community, and has earned multiple Pro Bowlinvitations. We are happy to have him as a Titan for many years to come.”
