Titans DT Kevin Vickerson Signs RFA Tender

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports Tennessee Titans defensive end Kevin Vickerson has signed his one-year tender.

Vickerson had been participating in the team's off-season workout program after signing an injury protection waiver.

A seventh-round pick out of Michigan State by the Miami Dolphins 2005, Vickerson spent his rookie season on injured reserve, and did not appear in a game during his second season with the Dolphins. Waived prior to the 2007 season, the Titans signed Vickerson to the practice squad midway through the '07 season, and activated for the final four games, where Vickerson totaled three games.

In 2008, Vickerson posted 14 tackles and 1.5 quarterback sacks, and was also suspended four games for violating the NFL's steroid policy. Last season, Vickerson started two of 13 games, totaling 28 tackles and getting seven hits on opposing quarterbacks.

As a part-time starter, and one of several defensive tackles asked to step up their games after the free agent departure of Albert Haynesworth, the Titans tendered Vickerson at the second-round level this off-season, and he will earn $1.759 million dollars in base salary in 2010.
