MLB Stephen Tulloch wants a new contract, and he's not talking about the $2.5 million RFA tender we offered last month. Tully still hasn't signed that offer, but I would expect him to do so before too long. There's also an update on the linebacking group as a whole, where basically there's no new news for anyone on Bulluck or Thornton.
This week's Friday Jam features one of the best live band you'll ever see, Th' Legendary Shack Shakers, doing their song Ichabod. Seriously though, if these guys come through your town you owe it to yourself to check out their unique brand of hell-bent rockabilly played with a double bass drummer.
Sergio Kindle is headed into town to work-out for the Titans, and Jim Wyatt also has a larger list of non-local players we're brining in to evaluate up close and personal:
• Ole Miss RB Dexter McCluster
• Florida CB Joe Haden
• Boise State CB Kyle Wilson
• Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox
• Texas WR Jordan Shipley
• Florida State CB Patrick Robinson
• Texas Christian DE Jerry Hughes
• Florida Atlantic QB Rusty Smith
• Louisiana Lafayette DE Hall Davis
• N.C. State C Ted Larsen

City Paper reporter David Boclair takes a look at the current secondary, who have a startling lack of size.
Now this, I dig: PFW has published a draft value chart based upon what they're hearing from around the league, not their own evaluations. In this format, rather than arbitrarily rank each player, the lump like players based on where they should go in a round. I love this whole move because it's much closer to what several teams actually do. When you just rank them Mel Kiper-style you never know what the distance is in terms of talent between those numbers.
If you want to talk Boom or Bust in the 2010 draft, you have to start the conversation with Jason Pierre-Paul and Taylor Mays. Both young men are physical freaks who by all accounts lack the recent production to justify how high they may get drafted. PFW takes a look at the conundrum from a scouts point of view.
"If I was a general manager, I probably would take Colt McCoy (of Texas) first because there's less questions about him," Dungy said in a video posted to his Web site, AllProDad.com.
Super-contributor rwinston must be telling us something about who he wants us to pick by sending me this link to a Scout.com article praising Rutgers CB Devin McCourty. I'll admit that I like the idea of having twin brothers on the team, if the Titans take Devin at the right spot (like after trading back). It would instantly harken back to the Rolle brothers era.
