Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin agreed to a new five-year deal on Tuesday.  Sources say the deal is worth a little more than $7 million per year.

"Michael is a talented and successful young player for us," Titans general manager Ruston Webster said in a statement. "The goal is to keep a core of talented young players together and let them grow and Griff fits in that group. He showed a great deal of professionalism in how he dealt with this situation and he is invested in making this team better."

The Titans put the franchise tag on Griffin, but he never signed the deal and continued to show up at the facility to workout.

Griffin recorded 75 tackles last season.
