Jimmy posted it earlier, but here's my two cents: USA Today is reporting that ESPN is reporting that the Redskins are dangling a trade for Albert Haynesworth with the Titans. Yes, I did everything I could to make sure that Chris Mortensen wasn't just reading an old scrap of paper he found in the pants he wore on draft day. The Washington Post says the talks aren't surprising. The alleged cost is two draft picks, but the rounds aren't specified in the report. If it's anything less than a 3rd rounder they have to make this happen. Albert is acting like a baby in Washington, but this team knows how to handle him and get the most out of the big man. Yes, we already have a deep defensive line, but you don't miss the chance to bring in a guy who can be one of the most dominant defensive players in the league. Too much top-end talent is never, ever a bad thing.
Man, you go out of pocket for one Sunday afternoon and the Titans just blow your mind. I was feeling pretty good about the roster when I woke up early Sunday morning to head out for a roadtrip with the wife, and when I check my phone that night Blount is gone for... two special teams reserve linebackers? Wow. The team must have known they were going to kick LeGarrette to the curb pretty soon after the Saturday cuts, and now that the bid to get him on the practice squad fail it's going to be interesting to see who they bring in for the 3rd RB (which, yes, they do need a 3rd RB even if he is inactive for half the games).
Follow us through the jump for an update on Britt....
Kenny Britt is saying that the meltdown we all saw last Thursday night is all behind him, and is vowing to start the season with a clean slate and a better mental outlook. I'm sure most Titans fans are as skeptical as I am that Britt can turn the page that quickly, but if we can just see some incremental improvement that gives him a little confidence and momentum early on, it'll go a long way towards getting him back on track. It's really touchy because the whole issue is between his ears, not in some injury that doctors and coaches know how treat. That being said, he doesn't have to be Tony Robbins to go out and help this offense on Sunday.
David Boclair talks with Chris Johnson about where he honed his incredible speed. CJ2K gives a lot of the credit o barefoot races on the streets of his Orlando neighborhood where local kids would square-off in sprints. The light-pole to light-pole races helped build CJ's incredible drive and competitiveness, and probably go a long way towards his habit of challenging all comers to impromptu races.
Boclair looks at the holes still left on the Titans' roster after this weekend's cuts, pick-ups and practice squad signings.
Raheem Brock was among several names familiar to NFL fans cut by the Titans, and it's looking like he
could retire as a result got signed by Seattle over the weekend.
Just six more days until we get the first shot at burying that horrendous ghost of last year's 0-6 start.
The Texans signed Matt Leinart to a one year deal after the bust-tastic QB was out-right cut by Arizona on Saturday. How crappy of a feeling is it to be a top 10 pick just 5 years ago, and lose your roster spot to Derrick Anderson? Probably about as bad as being the guy who drafted said QB.
In other disgraced USC superstar news, several media (mostly Yahoo!)outlets are saying that the Heisman Trust will yank Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy when the NCAA makes their final ruling because on whether the running back was ineligible during the season he won it. On the other hand, Chris Fowler of ESPN was just on Sports Center saying that the report is wrong.
