Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Meet You At The Vince Young Steakhouse Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kevin Mawae was the first of the Titans to start helping his neighbors clean-up from last week's disastrous floods, but I couldn't find an online copy of the story to link to.  Now the Tennessean has a full-blown story on the effort. It's heartening to see a guy who is not happy about not having a job, and in the middle of contentious CBA talks, take the time to help the people around him who just needed a hand in rebuilding their lives. I like it even more that Mawae didn't make a show of it; by all accounts if you didn't know what he looked like sans-helmet you'd have just though he was a big guy showing up to do some heavy lifting. I bet you it's a mentality like that which is why you haven't seen tons of stories of players and staff doing volunteer work, even though I know for a fact that it's happening all around town.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The big news yesterday afternoon was that VY finally dropped his agent/family friend for a real-deal agent Major Adams for super-agent Tom Condon.  I'm sure this swap has noting at all to do with VY's deal expiring after 2011, which means we can look forward to negotiations next off-season should VY succeed this year.

Follow us through the jump to find out about Vince Young's new business venture...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Loyal reader and linkster JimR brings good news for Austin-based VY fans: seems the Vince Young is opening a steakhouse on 4th and San Jacinto soon.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 JJ Cooper takes a look at the theory that more draft picks = better draft, and uses our 2005 and 2006 drafts as case studies.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Wow.  Just wow.  I did not see the Cushing story breaking that way at all... something is fishy here though, because if it's 'not steroidal', why would that hormone trigger a suspension? Here's my best bet: It says here that HCG is also a fertility drug, which we've seen in the past guys take on the back end of a steroid cycle to kick start their natural testosterone production (see, steroids flood your body with artificial testosterone so your body quits making it's own... thus you get shriveled balls, etc.) My guess is that this hormone was on the list for that reason, and it's more likely he was taking it for that reason that it is possible that he rubbed one out right before he took the test.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Burgeoning commenter WX_Man lets us know that, as if it were possible, one street in Baltimore just became a much more dangerous spot to watch the Super Bowl: Ray Lewis Way.  That's right, Ray Ray is getting a cell block street named in his honor. For all of my attempts at a zinger, I couldn't top MJD's take on the renaming of North Way:

Also on the plus side for the location, North Avenue is nowhere near the Baltimore County Courthouse, so even if Ray's new street has to undergo massive construction, Ray Lewis Way can never obstruct justice.
