Searcy agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from $5.625 million to $3.4 million, ESPN.com's Field Yates reports.
Searcy also accepted a pay cut from $6.125 million to $3.8 million for 2018, with the ability to recover up to $750,000 through incentives in both years. He's been a disappointment since signing a four-year, $23.75 million deal with the Titans in 2015, recording 95 tackles and two interceptions in 29 games (27 starts). With Johnathan Cyprien signed in March and 2016 third-round selection Kevin Byard hoping to take on an expanded role, Searcy could face serious competition for a starting job.

Searcy was removed from Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a concussion, but his full participation Wednesday implies that he's been cleared through the league's protocol and should be available in Week 16.
Searcy was forced to exit in the second half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, but it's unclear whether he did in fact suffer a concussion. If he was concussed, he'll be a longshot to play next week against the Jaguars.
Searcy hasn't played since spraining his ankle in Week 3 but he returned to practice in full on Wednesday. He was removed from the injury report this week as well, and it was confirmed on Friday that he would play. He'll be expected to start, bumping Daimion Stafford back to a depth role on the defense.
