Former Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard is joining the Titans, according to ... well, Wesley Woodyard.

According to several media reports, it's a four-year, $16 million deal.

Woodyard, originally an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky, spent the first six years of his NFL career in Denver. He started 10 games last season, registering 84 tackles 1.5 sacks and one interception. He's good in coverage but at 233 pounds, isn't particularly stout against the run. It led to his benching last season.

According to ProFootballFocus.com, Woodyard ranked 27th among all inside linebackers, just ahead of Brad Jones, Curtis Lofton and Manti Te'o.

The Titans have also signed running back Dexter McCluster and defensive lineman Al Woods during the first week of free agency.
