Mike Munchak remembers only too well his first NFL game and not knowing how long pre-game warm-ups were, what to do or even when to head back into the locker room before kickoff.

Titans 2013 training camp, 8/02

In Friday's trip to training camp, I decided to go to the second field where the o-line and d-line have their areas for positional work.
