From Elvin Bethea and Ray Childress to Javon Kearse and Albert Haynesworth, the Tennessee Titans franchise has had some true stars line up on the defensive line.

One of the more unheralded leaguewide was Jurrell Casey, who anchored the line from 2011 to 2019.

After playing one season outside of Tennessee, Casey announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday.

Casey made the Pro Bowl with the Titans for five straight years from 2015 to 2019. Playing nine seasons in Tennessee, his 84 tackles for loss are the most in franchise history.

Despite not rushing off the edge, his 51.0 sacks are also No. 7 in franchise history, finishing just 1.0 sack behind Javon Kearse.

Any way you cut it, Case was an absolute terror for opposing offenses, and he endeared himself to Titans fans as one of the most underrated defensive stars in the league.
