Tennessee Titans Morning Links: No Breaks For CJ2K Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 CB and former first round pick Tye Hill's visit to the Titans facility is today.  He's been traded by the Rams and cut by the Falcons within the past 18 months, but he may be a viable option to compete for a depth spot in our secondary.  Put it this way: I'd rather have a mercurial but talented athlete than another DeMarcus Faggins in camp.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 NFL Network caught up with Coach Fisher at the owners meetings, where they peppered him with questions on Vince Young and Chris Johnson.  There was one interesting quote that contradicted some of the other comments coming out of Titans camp about cutting CJ2K's load in 2010:

[Chris Johnson] got a lot of exercise last year and there's no reason to think that he can't do the same thing.  The only reason he wouldn't is if we choose not to give him the touches, and I don't know why we would do that right now because he's such an exciting, potential game-changing player.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW has a timely breakdown of the top 5 special teams prospects in this year's draft, featuring return specialists Brandon Banks, Trindon Holliday and Brandon James. I rarely lay down such gauntlets when it comes to the draft, but one of these guys (or at someone of their caliber, at worst) better end up on our roster by any means necessary.

Follow us through the jump for links on Kenny Britt, Jeff Fisher and Tim Tebow...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young told CBSSports.com that he's excited about seeing what Kenny Britt can do next year... good job by CBS to point out some gaudy stats Britt put up last year:

The exceptionally athletic 6-foot-3 WR finished his first campaign with 701 yards on 42 catches (16.7 avg.) and three touchdowns. A whopping 34 of his 42 grabs were good for first downs or touchdowns, and 10 of his catches were good for 20-plus yards. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jeff Fisher also spoke to the Detroit News, and gave Jim Shwartz a little bit of cover on the potential Pacman work-out by stressing the difference between trying out and signing a player.  Although, when that player is Pacman, both of them will make you look a little dumb.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Coach talked with the media on Tuesday about the value of stability in the NFL.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Hat tip to gramsey for passing along the best quote of the day, as fellow combine attendees let Tim Tebow know that he's not at Florida anymore, and sometimes the best way to lead is to keep your mouth shut.
