Tennessee_titans_30x21 A few members of the Titans were able to re-enter Baptists Sports Park yesterday for the first time since that area flooded.  Luckily, BSP and the practice facilities narrowly escaped flood damage. The area, however, is still on lockdown and probably will be for at least the rest of the week.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Boclair turns-in a solid read about rookie QB Rusty Smith, who is the rare breed of college QBs raised and weened on a pro-style system though high school and college. Smith is going to be Mike Heimerdinger's pet project, almost like a Billy Volek who shouldn't take as long to reap some reward because he's got a better skill-set.

Follow us through the jump to find out what stars are fans of Derrick Morgan...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Derrick Morgan already has fans in the NFL, and they have names like Richard Seymour, Patrick Kerney and Osi Umenyiora and Chick Smith. Smith, a former All-Pro, is well known to Titans fan as the guy Albert worked with during his suspension for The Stomp. It turn out Smith tutored Derrick Morgan since the younger started playing college ball. Smith is now the D-Line coach at UT.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Nate Washington is hosting a football camp in his hometown of Toledo, so that makes him like a hip hop star?  I'm very confused by this guy's terrible writing... and believe me, it's not from a lack of understanding of what hip hop is.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Saints made OG Jahri Evans the highest paid interior lineman in the league thanks to a 7 year, $56.7 million contract. Evans was one of those players who would have been a UFA had the salary cap not expired, so he became a RFA (think Bo Scaife); as such he wasn't bound by the 30% rule.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Either the Broncos are lying about Ryan Clady's injury, or Ryan is lying.  If he really did tear his patellar tendon (allegedly while playing basketball), then that's a major blow to the career of one of the league's premier young tackles.
