NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans had all their draft picks except Michael Griffin on the field Friday afternoon for the start of training camp. Griffin, the 19th overall pick, will be around Saturday after agreeing to terms by the time the first practice ended.
General manager Mike Reinfeldt walked out as coach Jeff Fisher talked to reporters and gave him the news that the Griffin had agreed to terms.
"I wanted to give you something to talk about," Reinfeldt said.
Fisher already said he wasn't worried about getting Griffin signed and that he thought they were close to filling out the paperwork. Fisher said they will start the former Texas safety at cornerback to see if he can help fill the void left by the season-long suspension of Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Griffin had eight interceptions at Texas where he started at free safety last season alongside his twin brother, Marcus. He also blocked eight kicks in his career, including six punts.
The safety was the last to reach terms as the Titans wrapped up the final two of their 10 draft picks Friday.
