    SUMMARY: WR Tyrone Calico has returned to offseason conditioning program and is showing encouraging signs. "Ty has been a little inconsistent as far as attendance is concerned, but this week he looked good," Titans Coach Jeff Fisher said. "It looks like he has a spring back in his step, an explosion." Calico had finished last season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury and missed much of the '05 season with an ACL. He is in the last year of his contract. "He needs to continue to work and work hard," Fisher said. "Ty's had trouble with injuries and we've had high expectations for him, but Ty can be a bonus for us offensively."

    The last year of a contract tends to put a little giddyup in your step.

    So I am not the only one who has noticed that dissapointing picks catch on in contract years

    Second year out from the ACL's right?...thank you Roy Williams. I remember being pretty hopeful that this knock-kneed kid would be a fairly good replacement for JMac when he bolted for the Jets.

    I hope he finally gets it together mentally and physically, contract year or not. It would sure be nice if he could actually contribute with some meaningful production...on a regular basis.

    Well he has great explosion and can run fast again, but still cant run good routes and catch the ball.

    When you're 6'7", all the QB needs to do is throw the ball up. That's part of why Drew Bennett has found some success - he can leap over defenders to make the catch. Of course, now that Bob Sanders has figured out how to put his helmet in DB's midsection at the time of the catch...not so effective anymore

    Yeah.





    Too bad the only 6'7" player on the team is Gregg Guenther.

    Bennett is 6'5 with some leap, Calico is 6'4 with a lot of leap. That's a lot of height...
