KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans defensive end Ropati Pitoitua has agreed to terms on a multi-year contract to remain with the team.

Pitoitua had 91 tackles and four sacks last season to set career highs in both categories. He led Titans defensive linemen in tackles.

Pitoitua, who turns 29 next month, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Tuesday.

Titans general manager Ruston Webster says in a team release that "Ropati came in last year and filled an important role for us. He has been productive, and with the new coaching staff, we see him filling that same role for us moving forward."

Pitoitua previously played for the New York Jets (2008-11) and Kansas City (2012). He has 164 tackles and seven sacks in 53 career games.
