Titans agree to terms with Bud Dupree


The Tennessee Titans made a defensive splash Monday, reportedly agreeing to terms with pass-rusher Bud Dupree, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.


Dupree, the Steelers’ first-round pick in 2015, has spent all six of his seasons with Pittsburgh. He tore his ACL in Week 12 of last season.

Titans bolster defense, land Bud Dupree

Fantasy slant: By adding Bud Dupree, the Tennessee Titans have shown a serious commitment to upgrading a defensive line unit that has massively underperformed the past two seasons. He will join fellow new signee Denico Autry and youngsters Harold Landry and Jeffery Simmons to form what should at least be a more well-rounded unit. The question becomes how much Dupree actually helps. He was largely a beneficiary of scheme in Pittsburgh and no matter what metric you use to evaluate him, his production stands out as inflated. Per PFF, 61% of his pressures in 2020 came either as unblocked, cleanup, or in pursuit which was comfortably the highest mark in the league among full time players. Brett Whitefield
