Tight End for the Titans, Taylor Thompson is having knee issues. Ken Whisenhunt has no idea what he is talking about, though. I really hope that Taylor figures out what is wrong and comes back and starts practicing and getting reps with the offense otherwise he might have a hard time making this team come fall.

The Titans have gone with a youth movement at RB with David Cobb, Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews all as backs for the team. This has the potential to be a very good RBBC but we shall see.

Mariota is ready to keep on practicing and grinding but he gets a break.

Remember that this is a break and not a vacation. Its not like Marcus is going to fly to Hawaii and just sit out in the sun all day. Well, actually maybe he will, and he'll bring his iPad along.

Steve Underwood will continue through the season as Titans' president until Peyton Manning retires and becomes the new president of the Titans.

Should the Titans pursue Evan Mathis? Um.... YES. Whiz said they'd do their due diligence, Mathis might be a little long in the tooth, but he's still one of the best guards in the NFL. If they could grab Mathis, put him at LG and then have Levitre slide in at C (I understand he has to prove to be good at this spot), and suddenly the o line looks even better.

Quote of the Day: “It’s been a long six, seven months for me,” Mariota said. “… I wouldn’t say [tired]. I love the game, I’m passionate about it. So each and every single day I am excited to be here and I know it’s a blessing and a privilege. Tired wouldn’t be one of the words I’d use to describe it.”
