Titans LB Stephen Tulloch signed his restricted free agent tender Monday, meaning he’ll play the 2010 season for about $2.5 million. Yet, Tulloch is nowhere to be found .
It is believed the fifth-year player who excels as a run-stopper wants a long-term contract deal, especially after last season when he recorded a career-high (and a team-high) 121 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
“He has missed an awful lot,’’ coach Jeff Fisher told the Tennessean. “Hopefully we’ll get things worked out and whenever he does decide to show up we’ll see what kind of shape he’s in and try and get him back in the defense.’’
