Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck wants to return to the Titans next season, and he said dialogue about a restructured contract continues between his agent and the team, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.
But the 37-year-old, 14-year veteran is realistic enough to know it might not work out, and that he could be cut.
Well, yeah, if we cant come to an agreement, I guess thats what theyd have to do. Thats just how it goes, Hasselbeck said Thursday. Right now Im working out hard, getting prepared and ready, trying to have the best year I can. Again, Im really hopeful that its here, but I understand that some things are more out of your control.
Hasselbeck, entering the third and final year of his contract, is scheduled to make $5.5 million in base salary. Including bonus money, he would count $7.5 million against the salary cap.
With Jake Locker the starter, Hasselbeck will have to take a pay cut.
I believe in what were doing. I believe in (general manager) Ruston Webster and (coach) Mike Munchak. I believe in my teammates like Jake, Hasselbeck said. But
anything can happen. Surprises come. Well see. I dont know. Some of it is out of my hands, and some of it is in my hands.

The toughest decision for the Titans in 2013 is to decide whether they will be defined by Chris Johnson or by the play of their young quarterback in Jake Locker. History has shown that quarterbacks have to be the focus in the NFL, but Chris...

The Tennessee Titans have kept one of their pending free agents off the market, signing defensive end Keyunta Dawson to a one-year contract.
The Titans announced the deal Thursday. That leaves them with 16 players set to become free agents Tuesday.

Naturally, since in yesterday's post I noted the Titans hadn't been very active in re-signing their own players, they went ahead and reupped two, re-signing kicker Rob Bironas and defensive end Keyunta Dawson. Bironas's deal is reportedly for $6.7 million over two years, while Dawson's is apparently another one-year deal for the league minimum.
As I noted in my...
Tennessee was head of the class when the AFC South formed in 2002, winning the division in back-to-back seasons. The Titans captured only one more since then—in ’08—playing second fiddle to Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. When Manning missed the ’11 season and was released by Indy in ’12, Tennessee was primed to challenge Houston for AFC South supremacy.Yeeeeeeaaaaah…about...
Jason La Canfora reports that the Tennessee Titans have reached an agreement with K Rob Bironas on a two-year contract extension.
The Titans made it clear that they wanted to retain Bironas this offseason, so it’s not surprising to see them get this taken care of before NFL teams can begin meeting with free agents Saturday night.
Bironas, 35, saw his field goal percentage drop...
A 9-7 record in2011 under first-year coach Mike Munchak and the presumed development of second-year quarterback Jake Locker had fans and observers intrigued by the Tennessee Titans chances of a playoff run in 2012.
Injuries to Locker and several other key players quickly scuttled those hopes, however. And despite scoring 50 more points in 2012 than 2011, Tennessee’s defense collapsed...
Titans quarterback Jake Locker has faced questions about his passing accuracy ever since he was in college, and hes always offered a similar response winning games is more important than attaining a particular completion percentage.
But he also doesnt want to give the impression he doesnt care about improving his numbers.
Locker elaborated Thursday on comments he made...
When it comes to drafting players, NFL teams must know everything there is to know about every player. Whether it be stats, measurable, off the field behavior, etc. EVERYTHING is under the microscope.So why do so many teams screw up first round draft picks?Teams can only do so much to gain insight on how a player will develop. The speed of the game is so much quicker than in college...

The Titans have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with kicker Rob Bironas, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports. This according to sources familiar with the situation.
Bironas was scheduled to become a free agent next week.
Bironas is coming off his eighth season with the Titans. Last year he connected on 25 of 31 field goal attempts and all 35 extra-point attempts.
The Tennessee Titans have plenty of holes to fill, and they may be willing abandon their normal deliberate approach to free agency.

On the defensive line, the Titans...
