    That sounds like the same report from earlier this week.

    I hope so, but it's the top line item on KFFL's site right now. If I'm figuring out the time zone thing right, it would've been posted today at about 7 eastern, 6 central.

    I'm not seeing anything confirmed locally yet or espn. I wonder if this is just a misunderstanding of the earlier report?

    Could be. KFFL has been wrong before by trying to scoop some other outlets. I haven't seen this language before, though, and they are citing Schefter (who also sometimes gets a little over zealous in his reporting). I'll go turn on NFL network and see if they are saying anything.

    I'm gonna say this again... I say that Volek's our man. McNair's main concern is longevity now. The birds from the north have probably been whispering in his ear stuff like "ditch the Titans and come up here and win us 3 or 4 Super Bowls before you retire...you can do it!" or maybe they are getting D-Mase and Samari to lobby for him to jump teams. I can tell you now that if a QB blows up this much over something as little as being temporarily barred from the training facilities due to the "business part" of the sport, he didn't have much interest in staying in the first place. He was looking for the Titans to do anything at all to "disrespect" him so that he could blow it out of proportion. Who wants a leader like that anyway? Volek, your day has come! Give us a few good years and get us back to the level of competition that we yearn for! :ha:

    I checked Schefter's story from yesterday and he's got a quote very similar, but it says the Ravens and McNair have agreed on the parameters of a deal instead of the Ravens and Titans.

    It IS the big one! hahaha...:ha:

    After seeing that Schefter used such similar language in his story, I think it's likely that's where the KFFL quote is coming from and they have misreported it.

    I guess that's why KFFL says on their website

    "...the industry leader bar none (we know because our competitors use KFFL's Hot Off The Wire to stay up-to-date themselves)"

    I suppose if they want to stay up to date with half truths, it's a deal worth doin':winker:

    The media sure is chomping at the bit to report this story.
