Vanden Bosch Lands Four-Year Deal

Posted Feb 16, 2006

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch entered the season with Tennessee with a one-year contract. Today, the Titans locked him in for four more years.

Tennessee re-signed defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, preventing him from hitting the free agent market in a few weeks. Vanden Bosch, who played under a one-year deal in 2005, had a breakout season for the Titans with 12.5 sacks. His deal was expected to include roughly $15 million in guaranteed money.

Over the first four years of his professional career in Arizona, Vanden Bosch had just four sacks. During that stretch, he had a serious injury to each of his knees that required surgery. His full recovery and ability to raise his game to a Pro Bowl level has been nothing short of amazing.

"We’re very pleased to have Kyle here for the next several years," said Titans General Manager Floyd Reese. "Last season he exemplified himself as an important part of our defense through his work ethic and intensity on and off the field. It helps us to get something worked out with him before free agency, and I think both parties in this case were able to accomplish what they wanted with the deal."
