(NASHVILLE, TN) - The Tennessee Titans have signed free agent guard Jake Scott.
The Tennessean of Nashville reports the four-year deal to be worth around 20-million dollars. Scott has been the starting right guard with the Indianapolis Colts since midway through his rookie season.
A fifth-round pick out of Idaho in 2004, Scott was the Colts' starting right guard for 55-consecutive games.
He is the latest of a succession of former Colts to head to their AFC south rivals. The Titans have signed cornerback Nick Harper, linebackers David Thornton and Gilbert Gardner, tight end Ben Hartsock and defensive tackle Corey Simon in recent seasons. Harper, Thornton and Gardner remain on the Tennessee roster.
Scott is the first of six Colts unrestricted free agents to land with another team. Free agent defensive tackle Josh Thomas was also in Tennessee talking to Titans officials last week.
