Cyprien has never recorded less than 100 tackles in his NFL career thus far, and while he struggles sometimes in pass coverage, he is nevertheless a very talented player who should provide a boost to Tennessee's defense. It will be interesting to see if Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau utilizes Cyprien like he did with fellow strong safety Troy Polamalu during Lebeau's prosperous stint in Pittsburgh.
Cyprien will test the market once free agency starts March 9, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Cyprien led all defensive backs in tackles in 2016, recording 127 stops while adding one forced fumble and a sack. The strong safety has yet to record less than 100 tackles in his four NFL seasons, and has proven himself as one of the more solid back-end tacklers in the league. He will surely get looks from other clubs in free agency, although it is always a possibility he ends up back in Jacksonville for the 2017 season.
Cyprien is on fire, as he's posted 31 tackles over his last two games after not having more than 12 in any other game this season. As a safety, he's looking like a fantastic waiver wire add in IDP leagues if he's still available.
Cyprien posted at least nine tackles for the fifth time this season, and he's only had fewer than five on two occasions. As a safety, his ability to have games with big tackle totals makes him a high-upside option in IDP leagues.
