And that, as they say, is that. On Monday, the last unsigned first-round pick from the 2013 NFL Draft class agreed to terms with the team that selected him. Guard Chance Warmack and the Titans reached an agreement, the club announced.
It's a four-year deal worth $12.2 million -- fully guaranteed -- and includes offsets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Tennessee selected Warmack out of Alabama with the 10th pick in April's draft, and he was the last of the 32 first-round picks to sign. Despite the late start to training camp (Titans players reported July 24), the expectation is that Warmack will begin the year as the starting right guard.
Coach Mike Munchak said recently that the missed practices will hurt Warmack, and while coaches can catch the rookie up, there's no real replacement for experience.
"Even though he's been through it one time, there's nothing like this kind of competition," Munchak said. "There's stuff that went on today that the offensive line faced versus the defense. That's something that's hard to make up. I mean, we know he'll be here at some point and we'll just have to wait until that comes. He's good enough to play and help us right away, it just sets everything back."
Now Warmack's headed to camp and he should be on the field Tuesday when the team returns to the field after getting Monday off. And despite missing five practices, there's every reason to believe that Warmack will be the starter when the Titans face the Steelers in Week 1.
