Why the Tennessee Titans should give Tim Tebow a call right now

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

Will it be rookie Bishop Sankey, the Titans 2nd round pick out of Washington, or will it be veteran Shonn Greene, who saw just 77 carries last season backing up Johnson? The RB production will most likely be just fine, but it is a crucial season for QB Jake...

It’s that special time of year when children all over the country head back to school and the playgrounds and sidewalks go blissfully silent once again.
