Titans can pick high
if LenDale is signed

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee running back LenDale White has signed his one-year tender with the Titans on the final day for other teams to offer contracts to restricted free agents.
White signed his $1.8 million tender Thursday. The Titans had tendered him high enough that a team wanting to sign White would have had to give up a second-round draft pick to finalize the deal.
The second-round pick in 2006 lost approximately 35 pounds during the 2009 offseason and was as lean and trim as he had ever been as a pro. But the back who had to share time with Reggie Bush in college found himself watching as Chris Johnson ran for 2,006 yards.
White made it clear as the Titans cleaned out their lockers that he wants to start even though he said he loves the Titans.
