NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Da'Norris Searcy signed a four-year deal with the Titans' previous regime in 2015.

He’s due to make a base salary of $5.625 million this year and $6.125 million next year with no guarantees.

The team’s pending addition of free agent safety Johnathan Cyprien from the Jaguars could make Searcy obsolete. We don’t know the terms of Cyprien’s deal yet, but what Searcy is due is a lot no matter who else is on the roster at his spot.

Last year, Searcy started all 14 games he played at strong safety. But he was part of what was often a four-safety rotation and he wound up playing 520 snaps, fewer than Kevin Byard (616), Daimion Stafford (583) and Rashad Johnson (527).

Stafford and Johnson are both free agents.

Searcy was credited by the team with 51 tackles (two for loss), one interception, eight passes defensed and a fumble recovery.
