The Titans will wrap-up OTAs this week, which means the team won't be back on the field in any official capacity until the end of July. Munchak says he's pleased enough with the team's progress in these sessions that he likely won't put them through any two-a-day practices in minicamps.
Paul K writes about Jake Locker and the similarities in attitude and team-first behavior he shares with Steve McNair. That's some high praise right there, but you can't tell me this isn't the exact kind of 'take responsibility to protect my teammates/coaches' thing McNair would say at the perfect time that made us love him:
No. 1 draft pick Kendall Wright hurt his right shoulder Thursday at minicamp when he dived for a pass from Locker and landed awkwardly.

Ladainian Tomlinson is retiring, thus ending the career of one of the more talented and accomplished running backs I've ever seen storm out of a game and pout behind his visor on the sideline.
