Last week a report surfaced that the Tennessee Titans were going to ask veteran defensive end Kamerion Wimbley to take a pay cut.
Obviously, not player wants to take a pay cut, but many do so in order to better the team or in a more likely scenario, to keep their job.
Wimbley signed a five-year deal worth $35 million during the 2012 offseason.
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN’s NFL Insider and Sirius XM Radio, Wimbley has restructured his deal.
The #Titans and DE Kamerion Wimbley have agreed to 3-year, $9 M deal on a restructured contract, per source.

Wimbley was selected with the 13th overall pick in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. The former Florida State Seminoles’ star was fantastic immediately, recording 62 tackles and 11 sacks in his first season. After four years with the Browns, he joined the Raiders for two seasons before signing with the Titans.
Wimbley has seen a big dip in production lately, recording just 11 tackles and three sacks last season.
