NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a deal with former North Dakota State safety Nick Schommer, the first of the team's 2009 draft picks to come to terms.

Schommer's agent, Ken Staninger, said Tuesday night that Schommer agreed to a four-year deal with a "significant signing bonus."

"It's a very fair contract," said Staninger, who is based out of Missoula, Mont. "It's one that we feel comfortable with."

Staninger said there are escalator clauses in the deal that would enable Schommer to make more money down the road based on making the roster and earning playing time.

Tennessee selected Schommer with its seventh-round selection. The 6-foot, 201-pounder had 186 tackles, one sack, 13 interceptions and one forced fumble in 41 games in college.

His interceptions tied for third on the school's career list.

"He's a talent," Staninger said. "He's a nice size. He can run. He hits. He's smart."

Staninger represents about 15 players in the NFL and Canadian Football League.
