Jake Locker is very familiar with newly-drafted Titans WR Kendall Wright: mostly from when Wright and his Baylor teammates racked up 67 points while beating
Locker and the Huskies in his last college start Locker's former teammates in the Alamo Bowl this past December. Wright contributed 7 catches for 91 yards and a TD in that game, plus a few highlight reel additions.
Locker was quite the star during his stint with the Titans caravan in Cookeville back on Tuesday.
Rounding out the Locker-related stories of the day, Paul K weighs in on the pending battle between Matt Hasselbeck and Jake. Paul K, like many of us believe (begrudgingly) thinks it'll take a horrible camp/preseason run by Hasselbeck or an injury for the coaches to go with Locker as the starter. Personally, I'm hoping for the former over the latter, just because I'd rather have a bad Hasselbeck than a great Rusty Smith as my no. 2 option.
Paul K also takes stock of the AFC South's ROY race, where Kendall Wright gets some love, but trails favorites Blackmon and Luck.
David Boclair talks with Mike Munchak about how the new CBA's rules regarding player availability during the offseason are causing him to adjust his plans, though the changes certainly aren't monumental.
Jim Wyatt has quick hits on Scott Solomon, who likes badass metal (Five Finger Death Punch) and some of the best ethic cuisine on Earth (Greek/Mediterranean).
Former Titans draft pick and starting guard Jake Bell is retiring at age 31, citing a loss of passion for the game... that and a desire to not end up drooling and suicidal by age 45.
