Fowler picks Eagles over Titans

Restricted free agent linebacker Ryan Fowler, who visited last week with the Tennessee Titans, agreed to a four-year, $10.5 million offer sheet with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

"Tennessee was very competitive with Philadelphia. The offers were identical," agent Alan Herman said. "But in the end, Ryan decided to go to Philadelphia, because he thought that would be a better situation for him."

The Titans had wanted Fowler to come in and compete with Stephen Tulloch for the starting middle linebacker position.

Fowler had been an undrafted free agent backup with the Dallas Cowboys, who have seven days to match the offer sheet or surrender Fowler to the Eagles.
