Titans sign former Texans center Jones

Titans sign former Texans center Jones

(WAFF) - The Tennessee Titans have worked the Free Agent market since the frenzy began Wednesday afternoon.

First it was Demarco Murray signing Wednesday; Thursday it was Center Ben Jones.

The Centerville native and former Georgia Bulldog comes to Nashville via the Houston Texans, who let the center test the open market.

Jones signed a four-year, $17.5 million deal, with $7.5 million guaranteed.

He will be asked to help a struggling offensive line from a season ago that couldn't protect starting quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Jones is expected to fill that hole immediately.

The Titans also signed backup quarterback Matt Cassel to a one year deal this week.
