NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have signed linebacker Kevin Dodd out of Clemson to a contract, leaving only one of their 10 draft picks unsigned.

The Titans announced the deal Tuesday and shared a photo of Dodd signing his contract on Twitter.

The 6-foot-5, 277-pound Dodd was Tennessee’s second pick overall and the first of three selections in the second round of April’s draft. Dodd had 12 sacks and 26 ½ tackles for loss last season at Clemson.

Dodd had surgery last week on his right foot in what coach Mike Mularkey called a preventative procedure. Dodd is expected to be ready for training camp.

Safety Kevin Byard, the team’s third-round draft pick, now is the Titans’ lone draft pick without a contract.
