Titans ink Bennett to long-term deal

Postby WebHamster » Tue Mar 02, 2004 2:00 am

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - The Tennessee Titans came to terms Monday on a multi-year contract with wide receiver Drew Bennett.

The three-year veteran has played in 42 career games since coming to Tennessee as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA. He has a total of 89 catches for 1,311 yards and seven touchdowns with the Titans.

Bennett had a breakout season in 2003, recording 32 catches for 504 yards and four TDs.

"We're very pleased to have Drew here for the next several years," said Titans General Manager Floyd Reese said. "He's certainly established himself as an important part of our offense. It helps us to get something worked out with him before free agency, and I think both parties in this case were able to accomplish what they wanted with the deal."

Bennett would have become a free agent Wednesday had the two sides not come to an agreement.

The 25-year-old wideout was shuffled from position to position during his time at UCLA. Considered a long shot to just make the Titans roster in 2001, Bennett eventually worked his way into a starting role during part of the 2002 season.

It looks like Mcairens will be somewhere else next year (philly?), but I think they'll be fine with Calico, Bennett, and Mason. All 3 have different styles and strengths and should compliment each other well w/ Mcnair airing it to them.
