Tennessee Titans Sign CB Perrish Cox To 3-Year Deal


The Tennessee Titans have signed former San Fransisco 49ers cornerback Perrish Cox to a 3-year deal worth $15 million.

The Titans have been very busy during this free agency period, especially on Friday which saw Tennessee add five players to their organization. Saturday they would continue that trend by adding Perrish Cox, someone who could immediately help their secondary along with Jason McCourty.

Defense has been the focus this off-season in Tennessee. So far they have brought in Derrick Morgan, Brian Orakpo, Da’Norris Searcy, and Karl Klug.

Perrish Cox visited with three teams this week. The Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, and Washington Redskins. Cox ultimately decided to bring his talents to the Music City.

Cox is coming off his best season of his four-year career. Finishing with 5 interceptions and 18 pass deflections, both career highs. He also added 49 total tackles. During his first three seasons in the NFL however, Perrish Cox was a player who struggled to earn consistent playing time.

Coming into the 2014 NFL season, he was slated as being the 49ers nickelback before injuries allowed him to see the field as a starter. Once he became a starter however he truly blossomed and ultimately earned a three-year deal with Tennessee.

Although Perrish Cox has not produced multiple productive seasons, I believe that the addition of Cox will help out the Titans defense that was a complete mess last season. Standing at 6′ feet and 190 pounds he brings more size and physicality to the secondary.

Tennessee was clearly lacking a true identity on defense last season. However I love the moves that management has made since the end of the 2014 NFL season. I believe that the Titans will be drastically better on the defensive side of the ball this upcoming NFL season.

However with all the latest defensive moves for Tennessee, I believe that aside from potentially Leonard Williams the Titans are going to set their focus on offense during the 2015 NFL Draft and that is a good thing. Many of the defensive holes are being filled and I believe that many of the offensive holes will be filled during the draft.

Overall I believe that this has been one of the most productive off-seasons for the Tennessee Titans in recent memory and their on the field performance should reflect that.
