NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a multiyear deal with offensive tackle Michael Oher, a former first-round draft pick who spent his first five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
Titans general manager Ruston Webster called Oher ''a big, strong, durable player'' in a statement announcing the move Friday. Oher's contract reportedly is a four-year deal worth $20 million with $9.5 million guaranteed.
Oher tweeted that he's ''extremely happy and excited to be a Titan (and) can't wait to do big things!!!'' Oher also tweeted, ''Wanna thank the Ravens organization and their great fans!''
The 27-year-old Oher should fill Tennessee's vacancy at right tackle created by the Titans' decision to waive David Stewart on Wednesday. Stewart had been Tennessee's starting right tackle since 2006.
