ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Tennessee Titans have essentially agreed to a one-year contract worth $760,000 with retired PK Gary Anderson. Anderson will arrive in Nashville early next week for a physical exam, audition for the team and is expected to sign for the balance of the 2004 season. This will be the second consecutive year Anderson has come out of retirement to assist the team.

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Tennessee Titans, who are expected to sign free agent PK Aaron Elling (Vikings) Friday, Sept. 10, are uncertain how the place-kicking duties will be shared by Elling and P Craig Hentrich in the season opener against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Sept. 11. The team is adding Elling after a season-ending injury to PK Joe Nedney (hamstring). Elling is viewed only as a stop gap for Week 1, as the team plans to sign PK Gary Anderson next week.

He's the Sugar Ray Leonard of kickers. B-)

I'm sure he can still boot XP's and FG's less than about 35-40 yards...I bet Hentrich comes in for anything farther.

Fisher doesn't want kicking to be an issue, so he just made sure its not. Last year, Anderson was 27 of 31 tries, and made all his extra points. Pretty good by anyone's standards. He also nailed a 46 yarder to beat the Ravens in the playoffs.

Typically, however, if its over 45 yards, then, yes, Fisher will put Hentrich in to kick it. Not all kicks - in fact few - are 50+ yards, so it takes a lot of pressure off a coach if he doesn't have to worry about a kick from 40 and in.

Last year in Minnesota, Tice - on more than one occasion - didn't trust Elling to kick it within the 35 to 40 yard range. How pathetic. And Elling's inconsistancy and Tice's inability to trust him, affected more than one game.

Fisher's a smart coach, and doesn't want to go through that kind of nonsense.

I am this close " to giving consideration to Anderson being responsible for the Nedney injuries. ;-7
