NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Weeden (6-3, 230), who has started 25 games in his career, gives the team insurance at the position heading into Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

Starting quarterback Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring in Sunday’s game against the Texans, and he’s “day to day,” according to Titans coach Mike Mularkey.

Backup quarterback Matt Cassel relieved Mariota on Sunday, and is expected to start of Mariota is unable to play. Mularkey said there’s a possibility the Titans won’t know about Mariota’s availability until late in the week, possibly as late as Sunday.

So the Titans worked out quarterbacks on Tuesday, and ended up reaching a deal with Weeden, the 22nd overall pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Weeden, who’s 33, has played with the Browns, Cowboys and Texans in his career.

He last played in an NFL game in 2015, when he started three games with the Cowboys and one game with the Texans.

In his career, Weeden has completed 559-of-965 passes for 6,462 yards, with 31 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. Because of his experience in Dallas, which uses an offensive system similar to the one in Tennessee, Weeden’s transition should be smoother at the start.
