Biography

PRO: The Titans used their third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on University of Southern California defensive tackle Jurrell Casey.  In his first three pro seasons, Casey quickly developed as one of the top interior defensive linemen in the NFL, a force against both the run and pass.  During that timespan, he played in all but one game and ranked fifth among all defensive tackles with 16 total sacks (Geno Atkins, Marcell Dareus, Ndamukong Suh and Justin Smith).  In 2013, he tied for second among NFL defensive tackles with a career-high 10.5 sacks and set a career high with 90 tackles.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2013, Casey was named Associated Press second-team All-Pro after putting together one of the best seasons by a defensive tackle in franchise history.  His 10.5 sacks set a career high and made up the second-highest total by a franchise defensive tackle since sacks became an official statistic in 1982, finishing behind only Ray Childress’ 13 sacks in 1992.  Only Jason Hatcher of the Dallas Cowboys (11) finished with more sacks than Casey among defensive tackles in 2013.  Casey’s season totals also included a career-high 90 tackles and a career- and team-high 10 quarterback pressures.  
•    In 2012, he notched 80 tackles to lead the defensive line and added three sacks.  
•    As a rookie in 2011, Casey recorded 74 tackles, which led the team’s defensive linemen, and tied for second on the defense with five tackles for loss.  
•    Casey totaled nine sacks and 22 tackles for loss during his three seasons at Southern California. In 2010, Casey’s junior year, he was named first-team All-Pac-10.  

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Family members, friends and teammates call him “Tut-Tut,” a nickname he earned from his aunt as a small child because she said he walked like a turtle.
•    Casey has nine brothers and sisters.
•    When he was in high school, his older brother, Jurray, was convicted of first-degree murder.  Despite the turmoil it caused, Jurrell credits his brother for helping him re-focus on becoming a better football player and student.   
•    Casey calls his mother, Collette Burns, a cafeteria worker in the Long Beach Unified School District, “the inspiration in my life” for how hard she worked to provide for Jurrell and his siblings.
