The Denver Broncos acquired Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey from the Tennessee Titans for a seventh-round draft pick in 2020, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.

Casey, 30, has spent his entire nine-year career with the Titans and earned his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl selection in 2019 with 44 tackles and five sacks in 14 starts.

He has three years remaining on his contract and is due $11.25 million in base salary in 2020, $11.68 million in 2021 and $13.25 million in 2022, per Spotrac.

The trade saves Tennessee more than $10 million against the salary cap for 2020.

A third-round pick in 2011, Casey has 493 tackles, 51 sacks, 12 passes defensed and eight forced fumbles in 139 career games (137 starts).
