    Olson Restructures Contract to Remain Titan

    SUMMARY: Veteran G Benji Olson has agreed to terms on a new contract before the cap deadline according to his agent. "As of this morning we have an agreement," agent Michael Sullivan said. "We expect Benji to sign it today." Details of the four-year deal were not disclosed. The fifth round draft pick in 1998 was scheduled to earn $3 million in 2006 as part of his old contract. Sullivan also represents S Tank Williams and says his client will be a part of free agency though the Titans remain interested in him.

    As long as he took a big enough paycut, I'm fine with him renegotiating. I didn't really think it would happen, but I guess with the current free agent market Benji didn't want to take his chances...

    I'm interested in seeing the terms of his new deal.

    Also, I guess that means Bell could be starting at RT this year?

    The amount of competition for that spot ought to light a significant fire under the players. Although Bell might be plugged in at LG if Piller is released.

    Something was said in another article about Piller possibly being cut. Has anyone else seen this?

    It's been referenced in both The Tennessean and The City Paper.

    Cutting Piller doesn't save any real cap money, so I doubt it. Maybe next year, though.

    Perhaps Bell could play center? That was mentioned as a possibility when we drafted him.

    Do they like what they have seen from Amato? Who would be better suited to play center? Bell or Amato?

    I doubt you'll find anyone here who knows the real answer to that. The coaches might, but I doubt any of us do.
