Chris Hope finally landed with an NFL team (still no such luck for Jake Scott...), the Atlanta Falcons. Hope hasn't looked like he has much left in the tank for at least two years now, but he certainly is still good enough to provide veteran depth for a team that doesn't like the guys they have in camp. Hope is a quality guy, and here's to hoping that he has a career renaissance in Atlanta.
PFF delivers an analysis of their Elusiveness Rating for RBs over the past three years, and the results are mixed for CJ. Johnson has had more carries than any other running back in the league (which is so, so stupid), but his Elusiveness rating lands him at the 16th spot.
Pacman Jones told the rookies he spoke to that he once spent $1 million in one weekend. I'm going to guess he didn't spend that jack on fine art. Also, Jerry Gray spoke to the rookies about how to develop healthy communication between players and coaches. I'm going to guess that the entire presentation boiled down to don't get arrested, be on time and don't lose.
Titans Sized takes a look at two veterans who have all the skills and size to excel at the NFL level, but just haven't been able to make the kind of impact we expected: Sen'Derrick Marks and Shaun Smith.
You can lump Gerald McRath in with those two, and David Climer talks to the veteran LB about the stress of playing out the final year of his rookie contract.
The Titans are rolling out something you don't see much in the NFL: half-season ticket packages. They're a popular way to encourage ticket sales in sports that have a lot more home games (MLB, NBA and NHL). The primary goal for the Titans' brass is the help ensure that our 134 game streak of sell-outs continues after they had a couple of close calls last season.
Jeff Fisher is rebuilding the Rams "in the Titans' image"? Guess Rams fans need to start praying for another miracle if they want to win big...
Why hasn't anyone signed former Packers RB Ryan Grant? It may have more to do with his financial demands than how overrated he is by many.
