Mike Reinfeldt Interview

There is an interview with Mike Reinfeldt up on Titansonline.

A couple of interesting and encouraging things I took from this (some of which we already knew):

On Free Agency (Jimmy will agree with this one):

"... I think the way to build a team in the NFL is through the draft.  Get the young players at a premium -- the really good players  -- and get your core players."

It's sounds like they aren't done with free agency/trades yet.  The running back comment is interesting and makes me think that the Julius Jones deal is more of a possibility.  

On Improving in the Offseason:

"I think that that leads to my statement of free agency.  It would be great if there were two great wide receivers or a super running back we could go get in free agency.  Those guys really aren't out there.  Randy Moss was out there, but there are other reasons why he might not have been the right guy to bring in...We may do some additional things to that with a running back: a third down running back, a playmaking back that can run draws or screens or those kinds of things."

On Vince Young:

"That is one of the realizations that we came to this offseason. He does so many things so special -- the bootlegs, the roll-outs, and his ability to run the ball that we have to take advantage of it.  That's what's going to make him special.  He can do the pocket passer stuff, but for him to be really special, we have to kind of turn him loose."

On the Current Roster Status:

"We're not that far away. It differs a little bit week to week, but we've got some core guys and if we can get two, three, maybe four more guys, I think we can get to where we need to be."

On Chris Hope:

"Chris is coming along very well. His surgery went very well and he'll actually be able to take part in the minicamps on time. He should be perfectly normal without any residual effect whatsoever."
