Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans have signed journeyman OT Adam Terry to fill in for David Stewart, who came out of Saturday's game nursing a hamstring injury. My guess is that it's a longshot for Terry to make the 53 man roster, but this is clearly a knock on Mike Otto and Troy Kropog. Both guys have been groomed for a few years to be quality reserves at the tackle spot, but this offseason has seen several veteran guys brought in to fight for their spot.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Karl Klug is making waves in his first NFL training camp, and not just because his name sounds like a bit character from Hogan's Heroes. Perhaps the most shocking aspect of this isn't that Klug was such a late-round, low investment pick compared to Jurrell Casey and Shaun Smith; the most shocking part is that Klug looks more like a Jim Washburn-style DT, weighing in at 275 lbs. Still, what Klug lacks in bulk he makes up for with burst, strength and motor. Those three qualities are usually enough to lead to a long career in the NFL.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kenny Britt is back to practicing, even though he's not 100%. Munchak is saying that Britt could play in St. Louis this weekend, but the real goal is to have Britt as good as new for the Sept. 11th opener against Jacksonville.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K makes a pretty convincing case that the Jeff Fisher regime wasn't completely irrational in their loyalty to Gerald McRath, just irrational in how they used McRath. Looking back, the fact that they were convinced that Tully was the best 3 down LB we had was pretty damned absurd.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Palmer is damned near as big of a Jared Cook fan as you are, and the number of reps the talented TE is getting is the proof.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Ahmard Hall has made a career paving the way for huge Chris Johnson runs, and he backs CJ2K through his current holdout.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Tony Brown had a reputation around Baptist Sports Park as a loud character who loved cracking up his teammates, and Shaun Smith looks to be a natural fit to replace that role.
