The Tennessee Titans and Mike Vrabel agreed to terms Saturday to make him the team’s new head coach.

Vrabel, 42, served as defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans last season after three years as the team’s linebackers coach. He is scheduled to be introduced by the Titans on Monday.

Vrabel, who played eight seasons with New England, was one of three candidates to interview for the job after the team parted ways with Mike Mularkey. The Titans interviewed Vrabel on Thursday in Nashville.

“This is an incredible opportunity and one I have been preparing for my entire football life,” said Vrabel.

“We want to build a culture around winning, competitiveness and toughness. Everything we do is going to be geared towards winning and being physical. We want to prepare our players so they know what to do, which will allow them to play fast and aggressive.”

Jon Robinson, hired as Tennessee’s general manager in January 2016 after spending time with the Patriots and Buccaneers, knows Vrabel from his days in New England.

“I have always had a great deal of respect for Mike as a player and as a coach,” Robinson said. “I saw him up close as a player for the Patriots and saw how he prepared himself to be successful on a daily basis.”

THE MYSTERY has reportedly been solved.

According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Rex Burkhead was the New England Patriots player involved in an accident that left Tom Brady with a cut on his right throwing hand.

The news came as the latest detail in the bizarre story that has enveloped the Patriots’ preparation for their AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Brady was a surprise absence during Thursday’s practice and was listed as questionable with a “right hand” injury in this week’s injury report.

Speculation reached a fever pitch Friday when the quarterback wore gloves indoors during his press conference.

Afterwards, reports began to filter out that the injury was a cut on Brady’s hand suffered during an accident in practice. According to multiple reports, Brady received stitches for the cut, but has not had issues throwing.

The circumstances of the accident are still unclear. However, Garafolo has identified Burkhead as the player who was involved in the incident in practice.

“They were colliding as they were doing some kind of handoff, little drill,” Garafolo reported. “I don’t know exactly what happened. It’s tough to decipher that. But it resulted in a cut. There was blood all over the place, from what I was told.”

“Somebody said it was a helmet clip or something,” Garafolo said, regarding the circumstances of how the cut occurred.

Garafolo also reported that Brady threw the ball well in practice, and should be set to go against the Jaguars.
