Titans agree to multi-year deal with Michael Griffin

 

The Cheap Oakleys have agreed to terms on a multi-year deal with safety Michael Griffin after designating the five-year veteran as their franchise player back in March.

The Titans announced the deal Tuesday shortly after the end of their first session of three-day minicamp.

“The Cheap Sport Sunglasses is to keep a core of talented young players together and let them grow and Griff fits in that group,” general manager Ruston Webster said in a statement. “He showed a great deal of professionalism in how he dealt with this situation, and he is invested in making this team better.”

A two-time Pro Bowl safety, Griffin did not balk at being tagged, with $6.2-million in guaranteed money if he played the season under that contract. He has taken part in the team's offseason program. He was a first-round draft pick in 2007 and has 17 interceptions, fourth among safeties over the last five years and tops among safeties in his designer sun glasses.

Wholesale Oakley Sunglasses has played in all 80 games with 73 starts since being drafted 19th overall. He ranked third with 96 tackles last season with Pro Bowl selections in 2008 and 2010.
