Tennessee_titans_30x21 The second corner back position has been the only real starting spot that's open for competition on the Titans roster (being a starter on the D-line barely matters since the rotation is 8-10 deep), and right now it's looking like Jason McCourty has the position pretty-well nailed down. At this point, I'd say he has to completely Nick Harper this thing implode a few times to lose it. After that spot, the next most interesting question in the secondary is what will be the pecking order behind Vinny Fuller's nickel spot.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Leroy Harris is the new guy on the offensive line, and he's going the extra step to show that he's got his linemates' backs:

Leroy Harris admitted he had "bad intentions." A play after fellow offensive lineman Eugene Amano had been poked in the eye by linebacker Jamie Winborn, Harris knew the next play – 26-power – would bring him into a collision with the former Vanderbilt star.

So he banged into Winborn hard. In an instant, the players went at it. A second later, Harris had Winborn flying through the air and on his back.
