    Titans Statment on Mcnair judgment

    “We will respect the decision of the arbitrator who heard lengthy testimony from both sides and ruled for and against each party in his decision. We stand by the fact that we were looking out for the best interest of the club in our action and our intention was not to punish Steve. From our reading of the decision, it looks like the arbitrator felt that the circumstances of this case were unique and special as they related to Tennessee state law and not necessarily a breach of the CBA.

    With this element now resolved, we assume Steve would rejoin our off-season program at some point. I also would expect to see discussions between the Titans and Bus Cook re-opened in an attempt to work out something that would be beneficial to both sides.”

    What do you think??

    it would be nice for this to be extrapolated a bit

    including the part regarding "as it pertains to Tennessee State Law"

    See they slip that in and for almost a moment you have this little bit of hope he comes back ........

    I feel like a grape in a clinching fist. Fleeting hope is there but only a matter of time before it is crushed.

    Right. They'll open the door to him. McNair will look bad if he doesn't show up to workout. He also knows a major injury would kill any chance he goes to Baltimore.

    There's still possibly a long way to go here.

    The longer the better for the Titans.
    No team would like to be in June camps without their starting QB for 2006 (especially one just coming in their system).

    Jeff, do you think the Titans may choose to keep Mac and dump Volek in an effort to win now, knowing we have Young for next year? It is an interesting thought.
