    SUMMARY: Rookie WR Jonathan Orr is showing at camp by the Tennessee Titans took him in the draft despite having a deep unit at receiver. "He's making a lot of plays," Coach Jeff Fisher said of the sixth-round draft pick from Wisconsin. "He's getting his legs back underneath him now and the speed is coming back, so he's running by people and making plays." Such reports are not good news for Tyrone Calico who continues to be hampered with injuries and has been the focus of some negative comments by his coach. The third-year receiver hopes to make a move on his own. "The preseason ain't over with. We still have three more games," Calico said. "Hopefully they will be patient with me. They've been patient with me in the past and I believe they'll be patient with me now."

  2. i like to hear that we finally have a receiver that runs by people, instead of getting tackled on the spot

    I just don't get Calico so much talent but just doesnt seem to have that burning desire it takes to be a starter in the NFL. He doesn"t seem to be worried about his situation and thats a mistake. It almost sounds like he has given up on himself. I hope he comes out of it and turns into what everyone thought would be. Good news on Orr give him some reps agains Denver and lets see what he can do.

    I believe I won't be investing in a Tyrone Calico Titans' jersey any time soon.

    At least it shows that there is finally some depth at the position.

    I was at Hibbitts sporting goods yeterday and they have all of Calico's jerseys on clearance.
    I asked the manager "You must know something?"
    He smiled and replied "Don't You?"

    Calico was a great side story for a while as he is a hometown boy. But, this is the NFL where production is everything. If Orr is as fast and elusive as they say, the Titans finally have that missing piece to be a huge offensive threat.
