Free agent cornerback Rod Hood is staying in Tennessee.
Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper is reporting that the Titans have agreed to terms with Hood on a new contract, although terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Hood was signed by the Titans in October of last year and made an immediate impact, entering the starting lineup in November and intercepting passes in three straight games, returning one for a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills.
Hood had a strange year in 2009. He was cut by the Cardinals in late April, signed with the Browns on May 26, released by the Browns on August 31, signed by the Bears the next day and then released by the Bears three days after that.
But he fit in well with the Titans, and in 2010 he’ll compete with second-year players Ryan Mouton and Jason McCourty for a starting job opposite Cortland Finnegan.
