The Tennessee Titans are declining the fifth-year option on 2018 first-round pick Rashaan Evans, Evans' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed to Ben Arthur of The Tennessean via text Monday. 

"The Titans have informed me that they will not be exercising Rashaan Evans' 5th year option due to ongoing salary cap uncertainty and instead hope to sign Rashaan to a contract extension before his current deal expires in 2022," Rosenhaus wrote.  

Evans, 25, is now set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2021 season, when his rookie contract expires. If the Titans exercised his option, Evans would have made $9.375 million in guaranteed salary for 2022 based on the formula for fifth-year options for first-round picks.
