The Tennessee Titans and Anthony Firkser have reached an agreement on a one-year contract.
Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser will remain in Nashville for at least one more season.
Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reported the deal, which is the first move the Titans have made to bring back one of their own free agents. Prior to this deal, Firkser was set to become an exclusive rights free agent in March.
The specific dollar amount of the one-year pact has not been announced. In 2019, Firkser made $570K.
The Harvard grad also totaled three catches for 45 yards and two scores in three playoff games.
Firsker’s numbers were down slightly from 2018 when he played in three less games (12) and finished with 19 catches for 225 yards and one touchdown.
Firkser was one of 22 free agents the Titans have to make a decision on this offseason. He was also one of the two free agent tight ends along with blocking tight end, MyCole Pruitt.
On top of Pruitt, the Titans also have to decide what to do with Walker, who is under contract for next season but saw his 2019 campaign come to an early end after battling an issue with the same ankle he suffered a serious injury to in 2018. He will also be 36 next season.
There’s a very good chance the Titans will decide to cut Walker in order to save about $6.3 million, which would be a huge boost to general manager Jon Robinson this offseason. As it stands now, the Titans have roughly $54 million in cap space.
