thank god...i cant think of what would happened if volek played
The Tennessee Titans resigned backup quarterback Neil O'Donnell to a two-year deal, meaning O'Donnell will return to the role he has held since 1999: Steve McNair's backup. "Neil brings a lot of exeprience to the table and is a quality backup," said Titans GM Floyd Reese. "In this league the quarterback is the most important backup position you have." Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and O'Donnell is expected to join the Titans immediately at their summer workouts.
O'Donnell is extremely familiar with the backup role in Tennessee, which primarily involves practicing with the first team all week and then watching McNair limp onto the field and carry the load. Neil has some fantasy value as a handcuff to McNair, but his biggest fantasy impact is as insurance that, should McNair go down, the Titans' offese wouldn't drop off dramatically under his direction.
