    If he fails the physical he could be cut. That would probably be the all around best situation if we do not want McNair back. If we label him physically unable to play then I think we dodge the cap problem. I am not positive on that one but part of NFL contracts say the player must be in physical shape to play or it is a deal breaker.

    I would imagine if we fail him the league would give him another physical

    If he fails a physical from the Titans, we can't cut him. That's the whole point of not wanting him to get injuried in practice...

    I looked it up. He would still hit the cap.

    That's the point of giving McNair the physical -- to make sure the team is not held liable if he somehow injured himself away from Baptist Sports Park.

    If McNair was found to have an injury sustained from working out at home which resulted in him being unable to play this season, I assume the Titans have every right to reach an injury settlement and release him.

    The $13.5 mil already on the books would count against the cap along with the injury settlement money.
