Titans acquire Kamalei Correa from Ravens in exchange for a future draft pick.

The Tennessee Titans acquired linebacker Kamalei Correa from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a future draft pick, the teams announced Tuesday.

While the clubs did not divulge the specific pick, ESPNs Adam Schefter reported that its a sixth-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Correa was a high school teammate of Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota before heading to Boise State. The Titans are well aware of Correa due to the presence of defensive coordinator and ex-Ravens play-caller Dean Pees.

The 6-foot-3, 249-pound Correa has recorded 11 tackles, two passes defensed and a forced fumble in 25 career games since being selected by Baltimore in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Correa played in all 16 games last season for the Ravens, collecting eight tackles and one pass defensed. He also notched seven tackles on special teams.

The 24-year-old Correa had three sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in the Hall of Fame game earlier this month. He added a half-sack in the Ravens 27-10 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.

Correa provides depth to the Titans linebackers corps. Derrick Morgan recently underwent knee surgery and second-round pick Harold Landry injured his ankle against the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend.
