NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with their second-round draft pick, running back Bishop Sankey.

The Titans announced the agreement Tuesday but did not disclose terms.

Now only left tackle Taylor Lewan, the Titans’ top draft pick and the 11th selection overall, has yet to agree to terms out of the Titans’ six draftees.

Sankey started his last two seasons at Washington where he rushed for 3,496 yards in his career with 37 touchdowns. He set a school record running for 1,870 yards last year as a junior, which ranked fourth nationally. He topped 100 yards in eight games and finished with 2,174 all-purpose yards.
