Titans re-sign Mariota protector in RG Kline

The Tennessee Titans have re-signed right guard Josh Kline, the team announced Wednesday.

A source told ESPN that they agreed to a four-year, $26 million deal with $12 million guaranteed.

Like most of the Titans’ offensive linemen, Kline took a step back in 2017 as a run-blocker for quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Titans believe their switch to a zone-blocking scheme will benefit Kline in 2018.

With starting-caliber and dependable offensive linemen becoming harder to find these days, Kline benefited from that.

Kline is the third former New England Patriots player the Titans have agreed to sign or re-sign this week, joining cornerback Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis.

The Titans are on track to return all five offensive line starters after tendering left guard Quinton Spain, who was a restricted free agent. Spain can still field offers from other teams.
