NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a deal with first-round draft pick Derrick Morgan out of Georgia Tech.

The defensive end tweeted Saturday night that he was in a break room in the team's headquarters waiting to sign reportedly a five-year deal. Terms were not 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.

The Titans confirmed they agreed to terms with Morgan.

They used the 16th pick overall on Morgan hoping to boost the pass rush on a defense that ranked next to last in the NFL in 2009. He had 12 1/2 sacks as a junior when he was first-team All-American and the Atlantic Coast Conference's defensive player of the year.
