Tennessee staying out of the news, finally.

Is the locker room changing.

Frederick Breedon

For a long time, the month of May and June were months I spent waiting for Kenny Britt or someone to end up getting in trouble and causing chaos for the Titans. However, last month I was pleasantly surprised (aside from a little bit of residual Lewan stuff) that nothing really happened.

Players like Josh Gordon and Daryl Washington have caused devastating holes in their rosters, and for once all Titans seem to have all eyes focused on the future.

One of the most encouraging things I have seen this offseason is that Delanie Walker is apparently mentoring Taylor Lewan (to at least some extent).

Delanie Walker is a great community leader and he has done a lot of good work for MADD and other charitable organizations. He also seemed to be able to keep Aldon Smith in check during their time together in San Francisco (minus one gun charge).

I think that if Lewan was looking for a role model in the locker room, there are very few people that could do the job better than Delanie Walker.
