According to a report from ProFootballTalk via Terry McCormick, the Tennessee Titans and starting safety Amani Hooker have held “preliminary discussions” regarding a contract extension.

Hooker is entering an ever-important contract season in 2022. The former Iowa standout is scheduled to make $2.54 million in base salary in 2022 with a $2.724 million cap hit. It represents a bargain for Titans General Manager Jon Robinson, who will have to award Hooker with a sizable contract if he hopes to keep him in Tennessee beyond 2022.
