BREAKING NEWS: the Titans have traded Vince Young, Bo Scaife, Michael Griffin and Ahmard Hall! (editor's note: What the hell???!??!) to the Raiders for JaMarcus Russell. Seems like nobody knows what the hell is going on, but Jim Wyatt is calling it the Texas Purge because all of the players were Longhorns in college. No clear reason is given yet as to why all of the players were cut seemingly out of the middle of nowhere, but Vince Young has called a press conference and is expected to speak later this morning.
On a more serious note, Leroy Harris is locked-in as a 2010 starter, and Jim Wyatt caught up with the O-line's newest starter during OTAs. The only mystery left is if he will play left guard or center:
Munchak said if Harris starts offseason practices at left guard, that's where he'll remain. He wants Harris and the other linemen to get comfortable. Then the biggest challenge might just be playing a full NFL season for the first time.
Legendary Titans scout C.O. Bracato was at the Texas pro day to scout Sergio Kindle, among others I'm assuming. Bracato predicted Kindle to be a pass rushing specialist. Not much to do with the Titans, but Texas star and BCS Championship Game softy man of indomitable steel, machismo and grit Colt McCoy nailed his pro day workout by all accounts.

Local product and Troy-alium Levi Brown is working out for the Titans along with Central Michigan star Dan LeFevour. Brown could be just a courtesy look since local players don't count against a team's total number of allowed visits. LeFevour is a guy that I'd love to see the team take a flyer on if he tanks a few workouts and plummets to the fourth round.
Another Titans reports from the post-McCormick era at the City Paper, and look who it is: David Boclair.
PFW looks at the role lateral agility plays in the scouting process, as these days more teams value a good shuttle time than a blistering 40. THey also list the relevant measurements for hundreds of draft prospects.
Joe Jurevicius won some key motions in his case against the Browns for ruining his career. Apparently just showing his picture in Browns uniform was enough to win the sympathy of the judge, but Jurevicius's legal team had to wade through the minutia of the CBA to see if the Browns were liable of his dangerous staph infection.
