After four years in Seattle, Jamarco Jones is headed to Tennessee.

The former Ohio State offensive lineman agreed to a two-year deal, $5.75 million deal with the Tennessee Titans on Monday, the first day of this year’s NFL free-agent negotiation period, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The deal reportedly includes $3.15 million in guaranteed money.

A fifth-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2018 NFL draft, Jones appeared in 36 games with seven starts over his last three seasons in Seattle after spending his rookie year on injured reserve. While he was a left tackle at Ohio State, where he started 27 consecutive games in 2016 and 2017, he played all over the line in Seattle, earning starts at both guard and tackle.

He’ll bring that versatility to Tennessee, where he’ll join a franchise led by former Ohio State defensive end and assistant coach Mike Vrabel. There are no other Buckeyes currently on the Titans’ roster.

The Titans have already lost two of their starting offensive linemen from last season – Rodger Saffold and David Quessenberry – so Jones could have the opportunity to compete for a starting job in Tennessee.

Jones becomes the first former Ohio State player to sign with a new team in this year’s free agency period. Other Buckeyes hitting free agency this week include Andrew Norwell, Eli Apple, Johnathan Hankins, Malik Hooker, Billy Price, Tyquan Lewis, Jalyn Holmes and Nate Ebner. Former Ohio State long snapper Jake McQuaide, who was also set to hit free agency this week, re-signed with the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year deal Monday.
