The Tennessee Titans must really be desperate for receivers. The team currently employs Nate Washington and Kendall Wright and the troubled Kenny Britt. A corps to build on, but Britt shouldn't be there.
Britt has had nine brushes with the law since being drafted by the Titans in the first round in 2009. That would include his latest where he took a friend, who had been stabbed to the hospital in the wee hours of the morning. Britt refused to cooperate with the police after the incident.
Former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst, Herman Edwards told 102.5 The Game's Darren McFarland that Britt has become a distraction for the Titans and needs to be cut.
“What players don't realize is this: It's not so much your problem, it becomes the locker room's problem. Because the media come in and say, 'what do you think about Kenny Britt?' You don't even want to talk about Kenny Britt. You've got your own issues as a player. I'm trying to get ready for the Saints, and you want to talk about Kenny Britt?” Edward said. “So now you become the guy. And I always tell players, don't be that guy where all of a sudden what you're doing off the field is more important than our preparation for the week.
“So the Titans, in my opinion are gonna have to make a decision of what's best for the organization and that might even help Kenny Britt. Kenny Britt needs to be cut. When you get cut, and you can't play anymore, it's amazing because you go, 'They cut me?' Yeah, they cut you. And sometimes you have to do that not only for the sake of the team, but also for the sake of the player.”
I agree with Edwards on his take. Britt and the Titans need to part ways. But if the Titans are willing to put up with Britt's immaturity off the field, so be it. Somehow the team will pay the price for keeping him around. I guess when a team is devoid of playmakers, they'll keep you around, even if you're constantly in trouble.

The Titans were up and down this season, what can they do to improve?
Here is my first look at the NFL Draft. There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year. The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft.
I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers?

Chris Johnson was just being honest when he made his assessment of his team, but maybe he could have been gentler. Johnson, who is in New Orleans for the Super Bowl was asked if the Titans were close to getting to the Super Bowl, his answer was even harsher than the reality.
“We’re very, very, very far away,” Johnson said. “I can’t even see it. It’s like it’s in space...
Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson made an appearance on 104.5 The Zone Nashville and was asked whether the Titans have told him if they’re going to pick up his $9 million option that kicks in on the fifth day of the new league year.
“Um nah. Honestly throughout all this….throughout everything that’s been going on and all this talk I never have talked to anybody...
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss is on fire this week. The media scrutiny of the Super Bowl will do that to anybody. And Moss has never been one to shy away from stating what is on his mind.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean caught up with him in New Orleans and got probably more than he bargained by way of asking Moss to reflect on his days with the Titans in 2010.
Randy Moss just keeps talking about anyone or anything that will keep him relevant. After saying the 49ers weren’t using him right, that he is the greatest receiver of all time not Jerry Rice, and today’s under the bus throw goes to the Tennessee Titans.
Moss claims the Titan blackballed him in 2010 after being claimed on waivers, but only playing a quarter of the season for...
Before we start our round of positional analyses, I wanted to repeat a little exercise from last offseason, assessing each of the Titans' veteran free agent signings.
After an unexpectedly strong 9-7 showing in 2011, the Titans enjoyed the benefit of some stability. As coordinators Chris Palmer and Jerry Gray looked more fully implement their preferred schemes in a full offseason...
I finally made it through my review of the all-22 from the final game of the Tennessee Titans' season, the 38-14 home win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which means it's time to report on what I watched. As I did for the game against the Jets, this will be a somewhat organized collection of my notes for each individual play.

In this episode of The 303:30, presented by Brewhouse South, Jeremy and Codey discuss the Predators’ slow start, whether or not you should be concerned that Shea Weber has been held pointless through the first seven games and the impact of the loss of Patric Hornqvist means to the lineup.
They visit with Ryan Miller of Admirals Round Table and get the scoop on which prospects...
