The Titans came to an agreement with first-round pick DE Derrick Morgan on Saturday.

The rookie from Georgia Tech tweeted Saturday night that he was in the team's break room, waiting to sign the contract. Terms of the deal weren't immediately available.

"And this is what they got on the table knowin I got to weigh in 2moro,'' Morgan wrote, tweeting a picture of boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Morgan has an "outstanding football temperament" and is "very versatile" but "is often a half-step late to arrive at the quarterback and lacks elite closing burst."

Morgan, the 16th overall pick, has the inside track to start at right end for the Titans as a rookie.
