McCain, who played one season with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014 after he was released by the Houston Texans, signed a two-year contract with the Dolphins last offseason.
A few weeks ago, it was reported that the Steelers and Titans were a few teams that might be interested in bringing McCain in for a visit after the scouting combine so it’s not shocking that he signed with Tennessee and especially being as Dick LeBeau is now their defensive coordinator. LeBeau, if you remember, was the Steelers defensive coordinator when McCain played his one season in Pittsburgh.
According to Rand Getlin on Twitter, McCain’s two-year deal is worth $5 million and that includes base salaries of $2.2 million.
I'm told Brice McCain's deal with the #Titans is for $5M over two years. Base salary of $2.2M per.
