Former Brows, Raiders and Titans OLB Kamerion Wimbley announced his retirement.
Wimbley spent nine mostly productive years in the NFL, recording 53.5 sacks, 442 tackles and eight forced fumbles across 140 games (123 starts). Father Time caught up to him quick, as he went from a player that got a $35M contract in 2012 to out of the league at age 31. Wimbley never played in a playoff game. "While I still feel like I could be competitive on the field, at this point in my life, my family is my priority," Wimbley wrote in a statement. Thu, May 7, 2015 12:20:00 PM

Titans OLB Kamerion Wimbley managed a career-low two sacks in 2014.

The Titans hoped that their conversion to a 3-4 defense would spark Wimbley at outside linebacker. He flopped instead, grading out poorly as both a run defender and pass rusher per Pro Football Focus. Wimbley is due nearly $3 million in 2015 and is 31 years old. His future in Nashville seems bleak.

Titans declared OLB Kamerion Wimbley (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's Week 13 game at Houston.

Wimbley pulled his hammy against the Eagles last week and was ruled out early in the week. The Titans will also be without LT Taylor Lewan, who has what appears to be a high ankle sprain. The rest of their inactives: QB Charlie Whitehurst, WR Kris Durham, RB Antonio Andrews, DB Michael Huff and DL DaQuan Jones.

Kam Wimbley and Derrick Morgan are expected to open the season as the Titans' starting outside linebackers.

Wimbley and Morgan have taken "virtually all" of the first-team reps, with Shaun Phillips and Akeem Ayers on the outside looking in. 30-year-old Wimbley received negative pass-rush marks from Pro Football Focus in 2013, while Morgan is playing outside linebacker for the first time in his life. Expect the Titans' defense to get worse before it gets better transitioning to a 3-4.

Titans signed OLB Kam Wimbley to a new three-year, $9 million contract.

It's a rare savvy move by the Titans' front office. Wimbley was due a whopping $6 million salary, so he's essentially cutting that in half on this restructured deal. 30 years old, Wimbley's role was reduced last season, but he has a chance to make a leap forward under new DC Ray Horton, who is installing a 3-4 defense. Wimbley's best position is 3-4 outside linebacker. He'll compete for snaps with Akeem Ayers, Shaun Phillips, and perhaps Derrick Morgan, though it's unclear whether Morgan will be a defensive end, or is in Horton's plans at all.

The Titans have asked DE Kamerion Wimbley to take a pay cut.

Wimbley is "mulling it over now." He's scheduled to earn $6 million in the third year of a five-year, $35 million contract but obviously isn't going to see it. If Wimbley declines, the Titans would likely release him and save $2.4 million against the cap while eating $5.4 million in dead money. The Titans' transition to a 3-4 defense is a reason for Wimbley to accept the cut and stay.

The Titans have yet to approach DE Kamerion Wimbley about a pay cut.

Wimbley is in the third season of a five-year, $35 million contract and owed $6 million in 2014. Releasing Wimbley would free up $2.4 million in cap space, but leave $5.4 million in dead money. The Titans view Wimbley as a fit for Ray Horton's hybrid 3-4, but he could be a candidate for a post June 1 cut if he's unwilling to restructure.

Titans DE Kamerion Wimbley said he expects to be back with the team next season.

Wimbley has been a bust since signing a five-year, $35 million contract prior to the 2012 season. He was reduced to a situational pass rusher last year, posting just three sacks and 24 tackles. With the Titans expected to run a 3-4 scheme under DC Ray Horton, Wimbley could be kept and moved to outside linebacker. Tennessee can save $2.4 million in cap space by cutting Wimbley.

Titans DE Kam Wimbley admitted at the Super Bowl Friday that he has "no idea" whether he'll return to Tennessee in 2014.

We strongly doubt he will, seeing as the Titans could save $2.4 million in cap space by cutting ties with Wimbley's untenable contract. He only played 360 snaps in 2013, rotating in behind Ropati Pitoitua and Derrick Morgan. Still, Wimbley's best fit is as a 3-4 outside linebacker, and new DC Ray Horton will likely install a 3-4. Horton could give Wimbley a serious look.

Titans DE Kamerion Wimbley played just six defensive snaps in Week 3.

Wimbley, who carries a $5.8 million cap number in the second year of a five-year, $35 million deal, has played just 59-of-192 defensive snaps after three games. The Titans said they were going to reduce Wimbley's snaps this season after he struggled against the run in 2012, but he hasn't been much more than a spectator. Fellow backups Keyunta Dawson (9) and Karl Klug (9) each played more snaps in Week 3. Wimbley is looking like a lock to be cut in 2014.

Titans coach Mike Munchak confirmed RE Kam Wimbley's role has "changed" and "been reduced" this season.

He's going to be a sub-package rusher only behind LE Ropati Pitoitua and RE Derrick Morgan. The Titans were not pleased with how Wimbley performed as an every-down defensive end in 2012, particularly his run defense. Wimbley is probably in his last year with Tennessee. His 2014 base salary is $6 million.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 05:56:00 PM

Titans RE Kamerion Wimbley has been demoted out of the first-team defense at training camp.

Derrick Morgan is the starting right end, and Ropati Pitoitua is the new left end. With Tennessee now employing a Seattle-like D-Line rotation, Wimbley will be used as a "sub-rusher" in nickel and dime packages, ala Bruce Irvin. It's an obvious concern for Wimbley's IDP value because he will make fewer tackles.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 04:24:00 PM

Titans RE Kamerion Wimbley destroyed the Cardinals in Thursday night's third preseason game, racking up two sacks and three tackles in just over two quarters of action.

He had countless pressures that didn't qualify as "sacks," tormenting John Skelton. Wimbley has played primarily linebacker to this point in his career, so there were some questions about his position switch to right defensive end. While he was admittedly squaring off with a brutal Arizona pass protection group, Wimbley was nothing short of dominant in the regular season tuneup.
Fri, Aug 24, 2012 06:34:00 PM

Titans RE Kamerion Wimbley says he received interest from the Patriots, Bengals, Seahawks, and Packers before signing with Tennessee.

Appearing on Sirius/XM NFL Radio, Wimbley said the Bengals and Seahawks were his most ardent suitors outside of Tennessee. Of the teams pursuing Wimbley, the Titans had the most anemic pass rush in 2011, and were surely the most desperate after their flirtation with Peyton Manning cost them a shot at DE Mario Williams.

Titans signed DE Kamerion Wimbley to a five-year, $35 million contract.

The deal includes $13.5 million guaranteed. Wimbley was already guaranteed $6.5 million following his release from the Raiders. He's an excellent consolation prize for a team that missed out on Mario Williams as it got bogged down in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, and should greatly improve a pass rush that notched just 28 sacks in 2011. That was good for 31st in the NFL. Wimbley has essentially been a 3-4 outside linebacker for most of his career, but he will play right end in Tennessee's 4-3 defense. He's notched at least 6.5 sacks each of the past three seasons. The Titans have a lot of pass-rush potential, with Derrick Morgan a full year removed from ACL surgery on the left end and the explosive, high-motor Wimbley rushing off the weak side.
