Paul K says Michael Griffin greatly helped his case for a new contract by accepting the franchise tag without complaint, then attending every conditioning, OTA and minicamp session he could. Reinfeldt also comments that the FO and coaches believe Griffin's okay will get better as the defense continues to evolve and improve under Jerry Gray's stewardship.
Munchack stated that he likes what he's seeing from Fernando Velasco, and says he may end up contending for the starting Center spot. I hope that's the case, but this also sounds like Munch lighting more of a fire under Amano's butt.
Ruston Webster isn't worried about the fact that Kendall Wright is already dinged up, and he hasn't even signed his contract yet.
David Climer believes Jake Locker's quest to start in week one is much more of an uphill battle than people like to admit. Essentially, he thinks it's Hasselbeck's job to lose. Gotta love how Climer throws this line out without justifying the assertion at all:
With a front-loaded schedule that opens with a home game against New England and includes trips to San Diego and Houston in the first month, Hasselbeck gives the Titans the best chance to stay above water.
Chris Johnson was excused from practice yesterday, which was the first OTA or minicamp session he's missed all off-season.
I'm guessing that, though no one would ever admit it, CJ's absence yesterday was directly related to Leroy Harris' return to practicing with the first stringers.
Steve Hutchinson is adjusting to Nashville and the Titans' blocking schemes quite well.
Bo Scaife's run with the Patriots is already over after less than a month with the squad.
