Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt has a piece on the friendship between Michael Roos and Matt Hasselbeck, the seed of which were planted back when Roos was at EWU, and would watch Hass in training camp with the Seahawks. The two never met then, but they've become fast friends in Nashville, and Roos might not have a bigger fan on the team than last season's starting QB.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt has quick hits on Taylor Thompson (philosophy major who likes Chopin... hells yeah) and Coty Sensabaugh (wants to use his NFL salary to start an anti-cancer charity in honor of his deceased brother).

Tennessee_titans_30x21 As much props as Jason McCourty gets for his coverage skills, he's also a top 10 CB against the run according to PFF.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Boclair takes a look at the Titans' recently developed habit of drafting big guys with wrestling backgrounds, including Karl Klug, Zach Brown and Mike Martin.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you really want to bug Zach Brown, just ask him about the assertions that he's a soft guy who is 'allergic to contact':

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Chargers released former Titans DE Travis LaBoy.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 So a Bleacher Reports, who needs a serious intervention over all of those GD slideshows, writer mentioned that the Titans were interested in acquiring Osi Umenyiora before the draft, then cites the claim by linking to a Jim Wyatt tweet about how it ain't gonna happen. Yay internets!
