The Denver Broncos have acquired defensive lineman Jurrell Casey from the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The deal is a presumed salary-cap dump for Tennessee. Casey has three years remaining on his current contract and is on the books for $11.85 million in 2020. His pact includes $5.45 million that becomes fully guaranteed this weekend, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Tennesee will save $10.2 million against the cap once the trade is official, according to Over the Cap. It's the latest in a number of money-saving moves by the Titans this offseason following the releases of Delanie Walker, Cameron Wake, and Dion Lewis.

A stout interior lineman capable of rushing the passer and clogging holes in the run game, Casey has earned Pro Bowl nods in five straight campaigns. He amassed 44 tackles, five sacks, and two fumble recoveries last season.

The 30-year-old fills a major hole in Denver's defense after 2019 starters Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis, and Shelby Harris all hit free agency.
