    per KFFL


    Umm.... there's no details yet, but that can't be good.

    Edit:
    Ehh... probably nothing, story updated on KFFL now, Fisher says it's been blown out of proportion and they'll get it worked out. .....his agent James Cook said there was no warning to the team's position and added, "Steve was told that until he got his contract straightened out, he wasn't welcome at the facility. Heck, he's got his contract already straightened out and now he's trying to fulfill it by reporting for the offseason."

    :) Sorry about the edit, slow typer.

    From KFFL's source: http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060403/SPORTS01/60403018/1027
    The agent doesn't sound very happy. :D

    The agent or the article's author speculated that the Tenn Thumbtack's are worried that they'll be on the line for a guaranteed 9 mil if he gets hurt before the season starts.

    So they'll probably want him to redo his deal and get that out of their first of all and then ask him to take an incentive laden deal that would give him the X amount of money in which he is owed if he plays in X amount of snaps or X amount of games/quarters/etc.

    This is a real unclassy move from a PR perspective for the Titans.

    Anybody else think this guarantees a first round QB pick?

    If the Titans didnt draft Matt Leinart i think everyone would be shocked. Jeff Fisher and Norm both persoanlly worked him out at his proday working with the Titans WR's. Made them run through Titans drills and etc.

    He's a titan unless someone jumps into #2 and steals him away.

    I'd say this craziness seals it, though.

    And consider that the Jests could get the #1...and not take Bush.

    I think Mangini is too smart to trade up to #1 or #2 for Leinart. That team has so many holes, and is sitting at a position right now where, with 3 picks in the 1st 35, they can get a franchise QB, an OT and either a CB or DE.

    Mangini is looking hard for character guys, and my feeling is that they'll shock the world and take Vince Young.

    I think David Givens now wishes he wasn't "inspired" by a guy wearing a Titans jersey at the Texans facility.

    Enjoy the extra $$$ David, you'll need to. :)

    David was insired by the $$$$$ and that was it. They can talk all they want about the bullshoit story about he gut withthe Eddie George shirt.

    Not finding fault with David, he admitted it.

    I don't feel bad for David, but it has gotta stink knowing that you are going into the prime era of a career and the Titans may be trying to dump a QB who is not sensational, but can throw the ball well. IMO David's prime will never be bright with a rookie who will take 3-4 years to develope.

    But he believes he is a #1 receiver - he will turn this rookie into a Pro-Bowler in 2 years. David Givens will realize his "potential" and make the Pats sorry they ever made only a respectable offer to him ;)

    Yeah, I'm being hard on Givens, but once you're gone, you're gone.

    Fully understandable Richpats - I really liked DGIV, wished we could have somehow kept him and do not blame the pats for not being able to keep him. I do not blame Givens for taking the money either. All of that said, were he to have a very disapponiting 25 catch season and be cut, I would not mind that at all. He is a traitor to me as are all defectors.

    David Givens isn't about stats or Pro Bowls. He's a winner and he'll be an excellent addition to that team in both the passing and running game. The Titans don't need McNair to be good. They've always won with defense and a strong running game. Volek is plenty good enough for that.

    Yeah... Steve McNair had absolutely nothing to do with the Titans' success. I mean, when he was one of the top 3 QBs in the league, they would win 10+ games every year. When he got hurt, they dropped down to a sub-.500 team. He had nothing to do with it. Just like the Patriots have always won with running and a defense, never needed a good QB.

    I was thinking about the Lienart angle and realizing this is just one of several "ripple effects" the whole Chargers-Rivers-Brees-Saints-Culpepper-Dolphins ordeal is going to have over free agency, the draft, etc.
