NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have agreed to terms on a trade with Baltimore for linebacker Kamalei Correa.
The Titans are sending an undisclosed future draft pick to the Ravens in return.
Correa was a second-round pick (42nd overall) by the Ravens in the 2016 NFL Draft.
He’s played in 25 career games, with four starts. His statistics include 11 tackles, one forced fumble and eight special teams stops. An all-conference performer at Boise State, Correa totaled 27 starts and 40 games over his three-year college career. Correa totaled 110 career tackles, 20 sacks, 31.5 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles for the Broncos.
Correa was a high school teammate with Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota at the St. Louis School in Honolulu. Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees was Correa's defensive coordinator in Baltimore.
Correa (6-3, 249), who has played both inside and outside linebacker in his career, has performed well for the Ravens in the preseason.
In Baltimore’s preseason opener against the Bears, Correa played 37 snaps and finished with six tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble, an interception and two passes defended.
“What a great game, huh?” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after that performance. “It was great to see him break out. This young man has been killing himself – work ethic, attention to detail, very determined. To see it pay off like that, a coach loves to see that.”
The Titans will need to make a roster move by this afternoon to clear a spot for Correa on the team's 90-man roster.
