“I love trying to prove myself,” Brinkley said. “I’ve always had to do it, and I’ve always had to compete to get where I’m at.” «Read the rest of this article»

Nashville, 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.
