Tennessee Titans sign S Da’Norris Searcy

Searcy was a 4th round pick by the Bills in 2011 NFL Draft. He played just 511 snaps in his first 2 seasons in 2011 and 2012, but he made 20 starts over the past 2 seasons as a hybrid safety/linebacker. He’s never played more than 753 snaps in a season, but he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 18th ranked safety in 2014 (on 666 snaps), so I expected someone would give him starter’s money to be a traditional starting safety for them. It turns out that team was the Tennessee Titans, who will pay him 24 million over 4 years with 10.5 million guaranteed. The fit makes sense as the Titans need a replacement for Bernard Pollard at strong safety and need to add as much talent as possible this off-season after a 2-14 season. It’s a risky move, but I think it’s a solid value.

Grade: B+
