PFT delivers 10 things you need to know about yesterday's judgment in favor of the players. One of the more interesting points includes that, while it may take a while to fully institute a free agency period, these new developments should pave the way for the signing of undrafted free agents once the draft ends this weekend. Given some of the hits we've had with that pool over the years (Tony Brown, Blount, etc.) that's an excellent development for the Titans.
A number of Titans players are dropping by Baptist Sports Park this morning with the hopes of working out. meeting the new coaching staff and maybe picking up a new playbook. Unfortunately, it sounds like they're getting none of that (unless you believe this is all a rouse):
"We were told, and I talked to Steve Underwood (that) we're allowed in the building. They'll let us in the building," Scott said. "I think the club is in a weird position. They don't really know what to do. They're being told by the league that we're not supposed to be working out, we're not supposed to be doing that.
"Basically, we're told if we go in the building nobody is going to interact with us. Or if you go in, you're on your own. They're not going to stop us from walking around the building, but they're not going to interact with us if we do go in the building. For the time being, if the stay gets issued from the appellate court or not, we're probably better off just continuing the routine that we have."
Paul K delivers Twitter updates on what players around the division are saying about their visits to team facilities this morning.The draft hasn't happened yet, so I'm still required by blogger law to deliver yet another breakdown of the QB prospects and a mock draft. But, we don't just do the bare minimum around these parts, so here are four mock drafts on one page via NFL.com.
Jim Wyatt rakes a look at the safety prospects who could interest the Titans. I'd be a little surprised if the Titans address the position before the end of the draft since they have a lot of developmental prospects in house already, but if they see something special in a guy, anything is on the table.
This profile of Penn State guard Stefan Wisniewkidelivers a pretty funny exchange between Titans coach Mike Munchak and the NFL prospect:
When the two former Penn State offensive linemen sat down at the NFL Combine to discuss Wisniewski's future, Munchak asked, "Do you think you could block your dad?"
Munchak and Stefen's father, Leo, a former Nittany Lions defensive lineman, were teammates at Penn State from 1979-1981.
"Yeah, I can," the younger Wisniewski said, confidently and proudly, like he does everything. "I know his weaknesses. I'll just go for his knees."
Turns out that back in 1988 Bud Adams offered legendary Nebraska coach Tom Osbourne upwards of $4 million to bring his entire staff to the Oilers. That was an absurd amount of money back then; consider that some unofficial estimates put the current average head coaching salary around $3.25 million.
MTSU defensive back Rod Issac's stock is on the rise in the final days before the draft.
