Veteran OLG Eugene Amano has signed a long-term contract to remain with the Titans, the team confirmed Wednesday.

Amano, who had been scheduled to become a free agent in March, signed a five-year deal worth $25.7 million, according to a source.

Amano started 15 games last season as one of the blockers responsible for RB Chris Johnson's 2,006 rushing yards. A seventh-round draft selection by the Titans in 2004, Amano was part of an offensive line that allowed only 15 sacks.

The Titans now have four of their five offensive linemen from last season under contract for several more years. OLT Michael Roos is signed through 2014, ORT David Stewart is locked up through 2013, and ORG Jake Scott through 2011, according to The Tennessean.

That would leave C Kevin Mawae as the only unsigned member of the starting O-line. The 16-year player and eight-time Pro Bowler is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March. Mawae's agent, Mark Bartelstein, told The Tennessean that he had left a message with Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt prior to the Super Bowl but hadn't received a response.
