Rennie Curran's life story is really inspiring. His parents moved to American in the 1980's because his mother wanted to help improve education in the States. While they were here, war started in their home country of Liberia and they were forced to stay put in America. They then dedicated the next part of their life to bring family members to America for a safer life. This has got to be one of the most storied draft classes in NFL history.
And he can play. Sunday's feature Titans article in the Tennessean was about Curran. Former Falcons Pro Bowl linebacker Jessie Tuggle, undersized like Curran, took him up as a protégé. Linebackers coach Dave McGinnis also has a history with small linebackers, from Mike Singletary to Stephen Tulloch.
With Stephen Tulloch, David Thornton, and Keith Bulluck absent at minicamp, the linebacker leader is probably second year Gerald McRath. There are huge expectations for him this year as he and Will Witherspoon try to replace Bulluck.
David Boclair from the City Paper makes yet another case to not pay Chris Johnson. He compares CJ to all the other 2000 yard rushers, and explains that he can only go down from here. Anyone who is expecting another 2000 yard season better be ready for disappointment.
