After all of the discussion surrounding Chad Pennington yesterday, Chad told the Miami Herald that wants to return to football, and he wants to return to the Dolphins if at all possible. Towards the end of the article there's a mention that the Cardinals, who are left with Matt Leinart and not much else now that Warner is retired, may be very interested in Chad's services if he makes a full recovery.
Remember when the Titans cut former 3rd round pick Courtney Roby, and he threatened to file an injury-related grievance? Well I think he'd agree that it's all worked out for the best now that he's the entrenched return specialist for the Saints. Of course, it's also hard to watch a former asset of ours excelling somewhere else in an area that pretty much crippled our season.
CJ2K talked about his contract yesterday after he accepted the FedEx Ground Award yesterday
Johnson also spoke about his contract situation, saying that the reason he would like to renegotiate with three years remaining on his five-year, $12 million rookie contract ($7 million guaranteed) is that a running back’s time in the NFL can often be short.
Perhaps just as interestingly to Posse and hal, discussed his first meeting with the man with the easiest job in the world new running backs coach Kennedy Pola:
"He basically said he’s going to let me be me and just watch me do my thing. He said he doesn’t really feel like there’s anything he needs to change in my game,"
Follow us through the jump to find out which current Titans has the best shot at the HOF, and much more...
PFW takes a look at the HOF chances of over 100 active players (if their career ended today, minimum of 5 years experience). The Titan with the best shot by far is Kevin Mawae, and I'm much more bullish on his chances than PFW is. I don't know that he's first ballot, but Mawae fits every single criteria the HOF has for it's inductees. As long as he doesn't burn every bridge he's got as the NFLPA president in the CBA negotiations, he should be a lock. Sadly, Keith Bulluck is in the lowly 'Don't Hold Your Breath' part of the list, due largely to his lack of Pro Bowls.
Paul K had some more in-depth conversations with Gregg Williams about the ups and downs of nepotism in the NFL.
Jim Wyatt and I disagree here: he thinks the O-line makes Manning look good, while what always jumps out at me when I watch the Colts is that Peyton gets the ball out on time so consistently (even if it means skipping it at Clark's feet) that you or I could block for him on most plays. I'm not dogging their O-ilne at all, but we saw the difference that dedication to timing makes last year.
Go here to vote for Reggie Wayne to be on the cover of the next Madden game... those Colts could use some Madden Cursing! Other nominees include Drew Brees, Jared Allen. H/T to smash, who was as happy as I was that CJ2K wasn't among the nominees.
Of all the players we've lost from the practice squad, Mookie still hurts the most. The worst part was I could name at least 5 guys who were on the roster at that time who were vastly inferior players, they just didn't have the incredible depth at their position we had at DT. Still, you can never let talent walk away from the top or the bottom of your roster.
