The Tennessee Titans stayed in-state to find a wide receiver, selecting Middle Tennessee State wide receiver Tyrone Calico with the 60th pick.

The Titans were in the market for a receiver after losing Kevin Dyson in free agency. They also were looking for more speed at the position, something that Calico possesses.

Calico moved himself into the second round with his showing at the combine, timing 4.34secs in the 40. He has great size, long arms and excellent athletic ability, although he didn't play against top competition in college.

In 2000, Calico beat current Washington Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot for two touchdowns in a game against Mississippi State.

He caught 45 passes for 606 yards and four touchdowns last season.

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms Wednesday on multiyear contracts with Outland Trophy winner Rien Long and safety Donnie Nickey.

The Titans drafted Long in the fourth round with the 126th pick overall in April and chose Nickey in the fifth with the 154th selection.

"We're obviously happy to have contracts with half of our draft picks," Titans general manager Floyd Reese said.

"We'll now continue to work on the remaining three players and hope to have everyone in by the start of training camp."

The Titans report to camp July 24. Last year, first-round pick Albert Haynesworth missed the first week of camp during contract negotiations.

The six-foot-six Long was a two-year starter for Washington State and won the Outland Trophy before entering the draft after his junior season. He had 13 sacks and 21.5 tackles for losses last season.

Nickey was a four-year starter for national champion Ohio State.

Tennessee Titans may have to face the Buffalo Bills without influential quarterback Steve McNair on Sunday.

The 30-year-old is on crutches after an x-ray revealed he has a cracked bone spur in his left ankle and also suffered a sprain.

The x-ray was taken at half-time after he was injured in a tackle during the second quarter of last Sunday's 29-27 loss at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts.

The injury did not prevent McNair from playing the second half though.
