Tennessee Titans Sign Veteran Linebacker

The Tennessee Titans have signed linebacker Ben Niemann, who previously played for the Arizona Cardinals.

Niemann brings five years of NFL experience to the Titans, having spent the majority of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs before joining the Cardinals for the 2022 season.

During his time with the Cardinals, Niemann started in nine games and recorded 70 tackles (38 solo), setting a new career-high for himself.

The 27-year-old linebacker is expected to compete with Monty Rice and Azeez Al-Shaair for a regular role in the team's inside linebacker position, providing the Titans with valuable depth.

With a linebacker-heavy defensive scheme led by defensive coordinator Shane Bowen, Niemann's expertise and experience could prove to be a valuable asset for the team. It will be interesting to see how he performs in training camp and preseason games as he looks to solidify his spot in the Titans' defense.

Over his five-year career, Niemann has recorded 237 total tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, five fumble recoveries, and three passes defended across 79 games played. Photo Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
