The Baltimore Ravens are trading linebacker Kamalei Correa to the Tennessee Titans for a draft pick, the Titans announced on Tuesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Baltimore will receive a 2019 sixth-round pick in exchange.

Correa was a second-round pick out of Boise State in 2016.

Correa (six tackles, three sacks, two tackles for loss and one interception) shined during the Ravens' 17-16 victory over the Chicago Bears in the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 3:

That "elite" performance was tops on the Ravens D, according to Pro Football Focus:

Baltimore coach John Harbaugh was glad to see his 24-year-old linebacker's hard work pay off, per Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun:

"Big step for him. You know, the thing we've been talking about with Kamalei the whole time was the idea of, take how well he was practicing to the game, and that's exactly what he did. He's been practicing like that all through the [organized team activities], so to take that to the game was a big step for him."

He had one tackle and 0.5 sacks in his latest performance against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday. 

Since being taken 42nd overall two years ago, Correa has gotten off to a disappointing start to his career. He recorded just 19 combined tackles, one forced fumble and two passes defended in 25 games as a Raven, failing to nab a sack or an interception. 

Baltimore used him at both outside and inside linebacker, although he is best suited for the edge. 

Correa told Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com in May that he was entering this year with a "different" mindset. Little did he know, he would also have a different uniform.
