Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Can We Just Call Them The Nashville Titans Now? Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 You. Must. Read. This. Story. 70 Titans players and coaches showed up in a lower-rent West End Neighborhood to help folks who've lost almost everything to the flood. I know guys have been doing work quietly around town, but I think it's important for people to see that most of these men don't just play in Nashville, they live here, and they can be an example all of the great things that have kept this city together through this tragedy:

As Meadows showed off his mud-covered Harley Davidson and a car that had been totaled, he said he was beginning to come to grips with the possibility that he'd never move back into his home of the last 18 years.

At least for a few minutes, however, those thoughts were in the back of his mind as he spoke with Fisher. He showed the coach waterlogged game programs dating back to 1999 as well as other ruined memorabilia. He was still looking for his ticket to Super Bowl XXXIV.

Behind his sunglasses, Fisher appeared to be fighting back tears.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Teresa Walker as a story of the same good deeds done by the Titans yesterday if you're looking for a little more info and some different qoutes.

Follow us through the links for more on Scaife, and a nickname for Nick Harper I should have come up with months ago...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt echos the confusion over Bo Scaife's absence from the OTAs and voluntary mini-camps that many of us have been expressing for a while now:

As far as tight end Bo Scaife’s situation is concerned, however, I don’t get it. The Titans offered Scaife a $4.9 million tender in March. He signed it. That’s pretty good money – nearly 10 times what Johnson is scheduled to make – and when you pair it with the $4.46 million he made as the team’s franchise player a year ago, Scaife hasn’t done too bad with $9.36 million combined over the two years.

Yet he hasn’t been around this offseason. No doubt he’s insulted because the Titans haven’t given him a long-term contract like they did another restricted free agent, defensive tackle Tony Brown, earlier this offseason.

$9.36 million dollars over two years for complete mediocrity and a few stellar grabs sprinkled in there. That makes my brain box hurt.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rod Hood recently had a 'procedure' to repair a sports hernia, and will miss the rest of this month's practices. Apparently the injury dated all the way back to last season when he had that stellar three game stretch filling in for the Coverfail monster, Nick Harper.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Florio dives into the procedural and legal story-lines that help explain the lag between Brian Cushing being caught as a cheater and then being punished as a Cheater McCheatington. This is the one area where Florio actually brings some insight to the table, so I recommend checking it out.
