It was reported earlier that former Denver Broncos defensive end/linebacker Shaun Phillips was visiting the Tennessee Titans. Well he visited, and signed according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

With the Denver Broncos signing DeMarcus Ware, they decided to let Shaun Phillips walk after having a solid 2013 season for the Denver Broncos where he racked up 10 sacks. Phillips made himself some money last season.
Tennessee is running a 3-4 scheme now, so Phillips will likely play outside linebacker in Tennessee Titans new Defensive Coordinator Ray Horton’s defense.
Phillips triples his salary. Great pick-up for Broncos last season.— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) March 27, 2014
Today has a busy day for former Broncos. First Knowshon Moreno signs with the Miami Dolphins, and now Phillips is heading to Tennessee. Former Broncos have had some success on the Free Agent market this offseason. Eric Decker signed with the Jets, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Trindon Holliday signed with the Giants, Zane Beadles signed with the Jaguars, and Wesley Woodyard and Shaun Phillips both land with the Titans. This only leaves Champ Bailey and Robert Ayers as prominent Broncos free agents still available on the free agent market.
