Nickey back with Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have re-signed veteran safety and special teams player Donnie Nickey to a one-year contract, his agent said Tuesday.

Nickey, a fifth-round pick from Ohio State in 2003, will be entering his eighth professional season, all with the Titans. Last season, he had 12 tackles in a backup role and was the Titans special teams captain.

Agent Jeffrey Chilcoat said: "He is absolutely happy to be back," declining to disclose financial terms of the deal.

Nickey is the second of the Titans' free agents to agree to a new contract, joining Eugene Amano, who signed a five-year, $26.25 million deal last week.
