There are a mountain of contracts that the Titans will need to renew or rework at the end of the season, and I'd expect some of them to be taken care of over the summer (much like last year where we saw Roos, Stewart and Cortland locked-up to long term deals). Here, Jim Wyatt talks about the situation with the player we probably all want to see stay around the most: Keith Bulluck (and his agent).
Vince Young doesn't want any 'gimmies', and you can damned sure bet he isn't going to get any. A more interesting question is does he even have a fair shot anymore?
Nate Washington is surprised at how difficult to grasp the Titans' system is for wide receivers. That's not to say there's any problem, but his duties just aren't as simplistic as they were in Pittsburgh.
Washington might be the only person more pumped than Gramsey for the season opener in Pittsburgh.
• TE Bo Scaife(notes) said he got a bit of a scare from the inaccurate Wikipedia post on the Internet that had him traded by the Titans to the Philadelphia Eagles.
"I heard something like that, and my phone was going off the hook. I knew that wasn’t true. I had to sign my deal first before anything like that could go down," Scaife said.
A league source told the Nashville City Paper that a deal that could have sent Scaife to the Eagles during draft weekend was certainly a possibility, but nothing came of it.
Also covered in that Yahoo! team report, LenDale is angling to change his number back to 21, which he wore at USC but had been worn by Reynaldo Hill on the Titans.
Nebraska and Arizona State QB Sam Keller is suing EA Sports for using college players' likeness without compensation, and he's an almost guarantee to win because that stuff is way illegal. Expect a suit on behalf of retired players to follow promptly if the Madden game continues it's long tradition of legendary/throwback teams.
