Titans fill holes

- from the official site of the Tennessee Titans

The Titans were smiling on Sunday after addressing all of their major needs in the 2005 NFL Draft. They made Adam "PacMan" Jones, a big-play cornerback out of West Virginia, the first defensive player selected Saturday with the sixth overall pick. Outside of taking three defensive backs, they shored up their offense by selecting three wide receivers, three offensive tackles, a running back and tight end. "We were able to kind of address everything," GM Floyd Reese said.

Tennessee Jamaican

Morlon Greenwood came over to America back when he was an 11-year old. Now, after 16 years of living in the United States, Greenwood is being sworn in as an American citizen in Miami.

Greenwood spent the last four seasons playing for the Miami Dolphins. He began his sporting career more interested in soccer than football, but transitioned during high school and has not looked back.

Greenwood was signed to the Titans as an unrestricted free agent.

DRAFT WHISPERS:

- from FOXSports.com

The team wouldn't mind trading its first-round pick (sixth overall) to get an extra pick. It doesn't want to have to reach for a player at a need position -- cornerback, wideout and offensive tackle -- and G.M. Floyd Reese never can seem to get enough picks. Arkansas' Matt Jones intrigues the club. He's projected to play wide receiver in the NFL after playing quarterback in college, so he's something of an unknown. But the Titans think he's special and want to grab him before another team does. The question is: Will he be available when they pick in the second round? The Titans need to pick well to be successful in 2005. The team has a thin roster and little salary cap room, so look for it to fill its most glaring holes in the draft and sign free agents after June 1 to solve other needs.

McNair is Back

Steve McNair has officially decided to come back for another season with the Tennessee Titans. This brings about the 11th season for McNair.

“After talking with my family, my doctors, the trainers and coach Fisher, I am excited about coming back to play this season. I feel good physically. My sternum is healing, I'm in good shape, I haven’t had any problems throwing and I expect to participate in some of the upcoming mini-camps. I look forward to the season, being a leader for some of the younger guys, and getting back to winning football games.”

McNair has been healing up from a surgery that was grafting bone from his right hip to his sternum. But, he is healed up and ready to put out another stellar year. McNair passed for 1,343 yards with eight touchdowns even though battling with his hip.

Good to have you back McNair!

SCOUTING REPORT:

- from FOXSports.com

S Justin Sandy has been cleared to run and is on track to be ready for training camp after fracturing his left foot on November 29 in a game against the Jaguars. Sandy (6-0, 214) is a tough, physical player, but he lacks some instincts and cover skills. The team likes him because he's shown he is eager to learn. While Sandy doesn't have great speed, he does have a burst that allows him to make plays. Sandy won't be a starter on defense, but he has a chance to make an impact on special teams in 2005.
