Tennessee Titans Daily Links: First Playbook. Seriously. Edition

This yam me spinach move!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kendall Wright is busy digesting the first playbook he's ever been given as a football player. Wait... wtf??!?!?!??!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Climer writes about Mike Martin' unusually diverse life off the field, which includes the time he learned to play the sax just to tag along with his school band's trip to Hawaii, only to be good enough to play in the band during games he was playing in as a football player:

As a high school junior, Martin would dominate things as a lineman in the first half of games, take off his shoulder pads and jersey, and play saxophone with the marching band at halftime. Then he'd switch back into football gear for the second half.

"I'd keep my football pants and shoes on the whole time," he said. "It was pretty cool."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Taylor Thompson was nearly a Vanderbilt signee when he came out of high school, but instead he chose SMU and Brandon Barden went on to have very good, though injury riddled, career as Vandy's tight end. Now, both guys are practicing alongside each other with the Titans.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Lets hope this prediction that the 20th spot in the first round could be tricky to negotiate a contract for (click on the link for the reason why) doesn't come true. If I'm the Titans, I say guarantee it all just to make 100% sure that our only potentially dynamic receiver who isn't staring down the barrel of another knee surgery is in camp, happy and on time.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Oh hell no.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vunce will be suiting up for the Buffalo Bills next season, which will mean the no. 1 and no. 3 picks of the 2006 NFL draft will be on the same roster... for VASTLY different reasons.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Eddie Boyd at Titan Sized says the Titans should just go ahead and switch to the 3-4 defense, given the versatility and talent on hand now.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Hey Mikey, might be time to break-off an extension for ole' J Mac.
