Tennessee Titans Daily Links: Any Chance To Shoehorn Nap Lajoie In There Edition

Soloman's proposal to cut the tackling dummies in half was quickly rejected.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Who, oh who, will win the Titans starting center spot. Could so many close calls be the challenge Amano needs to live up to his big contract, or will one of the youngsters jump up and unseat the weakest lineman left on the starting group.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Colin McCarthy put on six pounds in the off-season, returning to the 243 lbs he played at in 2009 at Miami. McCarthy's aim was to add strength and prevent injuries, and he feels like he's added the weight the right way thanks to the Titans' conditioning program.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rob Bironas is lobbying for the Titans to retain FA long snapper Ken Amato, who has been the only long snapper he's worked with since joining the Titans in 2005. Currently, Beau Brinkley and Jake Ingram are the only guys on the roster with any LS experience at the college level.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K says that Chris Johnson is the Titan facing the most pressure going into this season. He's got to prove last year was an aberration, or the Titans could think long and hard about whether they allow more of his contract to become guaranteed after the season. Hopefully having a full off-season in the Titans' training program, the upgrade to Hutchinson at guard and an improved set of threats in the passing game should make things easier for CJ. If not, then things really could get ugly next February.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I get what he's saying, but I just hate hearing this phrase from any front office member in any sport:

"It's very detailed," Webster said. "Stats are a part of it. But like I've said before, I'm not a huge stats guy."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Since the Dolphins decided to let him walk, veteran safety Yeremiah Bell has worked out with the Titans, Eagles, Jets and Chiefs. Now agent Drew Rosenhaus expects his client to sign with one of those teams within the next 24-hours.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you've got $75,000 to $100,000 to spare, you could buy Lawrence Taylor's ring from Super Bowl XXV at auction. That's nice and all, but I'd way rather have the 1915 Cracker Jacks card of my favorite baseball player of all time, Nap Lajoie. Make sure to at least read about the fascinating 1910 race for the batting title between Lajoie and Ty Cobb.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Matt Bowen of NFP breaks-down a route I hope we see tons of this season: the TE Seam route as perfected by the Patriots. Jared Cook, and perhaps Taylor Thompson one day, was born to run that route 15 times a game.
