NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Derek Hagan sat around last season hoping for a call from an NFL team. His phone never rang.
This offseason, the receiver only heard from one team and not until mid-June. Now he is in training camp with the Tennessee Titans hoping to earn a roster spot that keeps him in the league for his eighth season.
''Obviously being out two years is really not a good look...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Derek Hagan wouldn't mind a full-time job one day working in sports media, but just not any time soon.
Sure, that sports talk spot for Fox Sports Radio last football season as part of the Jason Smith Show piqued his interest. The NFL veteran had plenty of perspective and tales to offer from nearly two decades of playing the sport at every level.
But doing sports...
The Titans announced the signing of veteran WR Derek Hagan on Tuesday.
The #Titans have agreed to terms on a contract with free agent wide receiver Derek Hagan and waived wide receiver Lamont Bryant.

Free agent WR Derek Hagan tells Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio that he wants to try and play one more season in the NFL.
Hagan, 29, sat out the entire 2013 season after he was released by the Buccaneers in August of last year. He last played for the Raiders in 2012 when he appeared in 14 games and totaled 20 receptions for 259 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
