Tennessee Titans: Titans wide receiver Tyrone Calico has been cited for public indecency for having sex with an 18-year-old woman in his sport utility vehicle.

Metro Nashville police said Calico, 24, was issued the misdemeanor citation early on May 12 near Nashville's Music Row area. A police officer found the player and Domonike Wheeler, 18, having sex in the back seat of Calico's Cadillac Escalade, police spokesman Don Aaron said Monday.

Both Calico and Wheeler are scheduled to appear in court May 26. She also is charged with public indecency.

On the field, Tennessee tight end Ben Troupe has a foot injury that might cause him to miss the rest of the offseason but should not affect his availability for the 2005 season.

That was the initial diagnosis of the Titans medical staff Tuesday, the day after Troupe was injured without contact during an organized workout.

Troupe was the Titans' top draft choice, and 48th overall, in 2004 and finished the season second in the NFL among rookie tight ends with 33 receptions. Following the free agent departure of Shad Meier this offseason, Troupe and sixth-year pro Erron Kinney are the only veteran tight ends on the roster.

Washington Redskins: Safety Cory Hall signed with the Redskins on Tuesday after two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.

Hall made 60 tackles in 14 games, including 13 starts, for Atlanta in 2004. He was released on March 2.

He played in 87 games over six seasons with the Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals, with 352 career tackles -- 232 solo -- plus four interceptions and a forced fumble.

Hall was selected by the Bengals out of Fresno State in the third round of the 1999 draft.

In another move Tuesday, the Redskins released defensive back Roosevelt Williams.

Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins have signed free agent defensive tackle Keith Traylor to a two-year contract.

The 6-foot-2, 340-pound Traylor, who played for the University of Central Oklahoma, was released by the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots earlier this month.

Miami is the fifth NFL stop for Traylor, a 13-year veteran who was drafted as a linebacker by Denver in the third round of the 1991 draft. Traylor has 459 career tackles, including 13 sacks, and has forced 11 fumbles while recovering three more.

To make room for Traylor on Monday, the Dolphins waived linebacker Billy Strother.

Dallas Cowboys: Rookie free agent defensive tackle Chris Van Hoy signed a two-year contract with the Cowboys on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Van Hoy was a three-year starter at Louisiana Tech. He is also a graduate of Grace Prep Academy in Arlington.

Arizona Cardinals: The team signed wide receiver Charles Lee to a one-year contract.

Lee, 27, a seventh-round draft pick by Green Bay in 2000, spent two years with the Packers and three more with Tampa Bay.

He had 15 catches for 207 yards in seven games with the Buccaneers last season. For his career, he has 61 catches for 805 yards and three touchdowns.
