TITANS

Postby Homeless » Wed Feb 26, 2003 10:28 am

Four key members of the Tennessee Titans--quarterback Steve McNair, wide receiver Derrick Mason, guard Benji Olson, and cornerback Samari Rolle--agreed to restructure their contracts over the weekend, saving Tennessee roughly $10 million against the NFL salary cap. The Titans remain about $2 million over the projected $75 million cap and must reach that number by Friday. Tennessee GM Floyd Reese has a list of six other players--tight end Frank Wycheck, fullback Greg Comella, offensive linemen Fred Miller and Gennaro DiNapoli, defensive end Kevin Carter, and linebacker Randall Godfrey--he has discussed or intends to discuss restructuring with.

The Titans want to get well under the salary cap so they can offer tenders to their restricted free agents. The fact that so many big-name Titans are willing to take pay cuts to stick around indicates that the 2003 team may very much resemble the 2002 version that advanced to the AFC championship game.


Consistency is the key to a good team !

That's nice for the organization that all those guys are willing to do that. It seems like a growing trend in the NFL. Sign all your top free agents to huge deals and over the course of the offseason when you are cash strapped due to the cap have them restructure their contract. I guess the only problem with it is the front office taking a chance that the guy might not want to restructure.

im glad to see that happening more and more nowadays. players get so caught up in the $$$ that teams are rarely good enough to contend for a more than a few years, obviously with some exceptions. there are a lot of teams that almost get to the SB then bail out the next few years because they end up losing half of their team just cause they are all greedy. props to the Titans ;-D

Being a Colts fan, I really didn't need to see this!

I have to applaud the Titans and the Players, and I actually think much of this has to do with Jeff Fisher, and the rest of the organization!!

True Dat' Mr. Dragons.

I think it says a lot about the organization when guys like McNair are willing to do this. Probably a reflection of Fischer and a nice breath of fesh air among all the bad news players generate.

The Titans demonstrate what the word "team" really means it is good to see that a group of guys are all willing to take pay cut and restructure contracts just to hold the team together and make it possible for the Titans mgmnt to go out and sign FA or there draft picks

Many of the player that bitch about not getting the money they think they deserve should take a long hard look at the Titans and think about that when they go to the bargaining table on Friday

Like all of you stated above, It's good to see players trying

to stick together. I wonder what some of the Bucs are going

to do?? I remember them saying after the SB they might lose

some players?!?!

Love 'em. Hate 'em.
This is one CLASS team.
And I emphasize TEAM. What a rarity these days!
And Jeff Fisher - my vote for the best coaching job
in the NFL over the past 4 seasons.
