The day fans have been waiting for since the final buzzer went off in February, ending the Super Bowl and the NFL season has finally arrived.
Teams around the NFL are reporting for the start of training camp, including the Tennessee Titans who reported to St. Thomas Sports Park today for the start of the 2014 NFL season.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt along with players Jake Locker, Nate Washington, Jason McCourty and free agent addition, linebacker Wesley Woodyard all stepped to the podium today to address the media after the team completed their conditioning test.
"It's nice to see everybody," said Whisnehunt in his opening comments. "I'm excited to get started."
"We just did the conditioning test, so I'd say they were all here, verybody's here and we're all good," continued Whisenhunt. "I was pleased with the results."
Whisnehunt added that no one had failed the test, stating "We had everyone do what they were supposed to do."
Whisenhunt was asked specifically about guard Chance Warmack who has had weight issues at times.
Chance looked good, his weight was good. He was one pound within his weight, which when you are talking about three-hundred plus pounds, that's really not that significant," concluded Whisenhunt.
WHisnehunt fielded questions for approximately twenty minutes, with questions covering the spectrum of the Titans, but one point he made emphatically clear.
"I like the players we have on this team, and the only thing that matters is what the players in this room feel like," said Whisenhunt. "I think the are pretty confident we can have a good season if we have a good camp."
The team takes to the field Saturday morning at 9:20am for their first padded practice of camp. It is the first of eight such practices that are open to the public.
