Titans to pick 20th in NFL Draft
Free Agency begins March 13th

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – When Mike Munchak was hired as head coach of the Tennessee Titans on February 7th, 2011, an uncertain landscape awaited him.

But the foremost concern on the mind of team management, players and fans alike was whether or not there would even be a football season.

A year later, on the heels of a 9-7 season in which the Titans narrowly missed out on a playoff berth, the franchise is once again enjoying stability and a sense of hope. «Read the rest of this article»

Graham’s first catch as a Titan put Tennessee up with a little more than four minutes left, and the defense held on for a 17-14 win against Denver Sunday at LP Field.

“It feels real good,” said Graham, a 10-year NFL veteran who signed with Tennessee in the offseason. “Last year was the first year I didn’t have a touchdown.

Titans Online

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tommie Campbell had the view that defensive backs have in their dreams.

The Titans rookie safety saw a wobbling pass and 90 yards of lush, open LP Field grass.

Seconds later, the seventh round draft pick and former airport janitor, brought thousands to their feet by taking the interception for a touchdown. Campbell had enough gas in his tank to punctuate the return by putting one hand on his helmet in a tribute to Deion Sanders before high-fiving fans in the front row.

“I guess the quarterback and receiver weren’t on the same page,” Campbell said. “I saw the ball, broke on the ball and caught the ball first because I have had trouble with that at practice. From there, it was just run like Forrest Gump. I just took off and didn’t stop until I got into the end zone. «Read the rest of this article»
