Titans Monday Notebook

Posted Mar 31, 2008

Pac Man Jones has kept his name in the news this week with an appearance on the Michael Irvin Radio Show. That was among the highlights of the past week.


Pac Man Jones


            The PacMan Jones saga continues with the development of the team giving him permission to talk to other teams about a trade.


            "We've given them permission to look for a new home, and whatever happens after that happens," Fisher said Thursday of Jones and his agents.


            "I know he has enjoyed the time that he spent here on the football field. But because of his choices as such off the field, he's created a situation where he is going to have to look elsewhere."


After appearing on the Michael Irvin Radio show last week Jones was quoted that Dallas was where he wanted to be and that he hoped Jerry Jones would give him a shot.



Missed One


            After meeting with defensive end Kalimba Edwards last week, the Titans were unable to get a deal done before he signed with the Raiders on Friday.



Weight Watchers


            Wide Receiver Mike Williams had been given the ultimatum to get his weight done to 250 by last Friday and it has been reported that he was within 4 pounds of the weight. The four ponds are 16 less than he played with last season.

            "He worked and it's obvious," coach Jeff Fisher said. "I was pleased with his effort. That's a good sign."


New Carr


            The Titans signed Oakland Raiders restricted free agent cornerback/kick returner Chris Carr to an offer sheet.


            The Raiders now have seven days to select one of two options – match the offer or decline to match, therefore making the contract with the Titans valid.  Should Oakland decline to match the offer, Tennessee will not have to provide a draft pick as compensation because he was tendered at a level that only guaranteed the Raiders a “right of first refusal.”  


            Although he has been primarily a back-up for the Raiders he did appear in all sixteen games last season where he totaled 24 tackles.  In 2006, he set career-highs with 1,762 kickoff return yards and a 25.5-yard kickoff return average.
