    SUMMARY: A potential draft pick's character has always been a key issue for the Tennessee Titans. "It has always been a key element for us," Titans General Manager Floyd Reese said. "We have never wavered from Day One. It's always been at the top of our list." This is why many eyebrows were raised when the Titans selected Pacman Jones last season. Despite doing their homework, Jones has been involved in a number of off-the-field incidents. "Character is an issue for us again (this year). The process is the same," Titans Coach Jeff Fisher said. "Obviously we are disappointed in Pac's choices, but at that point, based on the information that we had, we would have been unable to predict he would have made some of the choices that he made. But we are uncovering every stone as we usually do, and we are all going to hold ourselves accountable for trying to get as much information as we can."

    They have enough character issues for 10 drafts to deal with in Pacman. Given the crappy job the Titans have done in dealing with them I don't think they have the ability to handle another.

    I really dont think that VY has as many character issues as Pacman. He hasnt had any run ins with the law. It was unacceptable for him to show up with the president in jeans but it was reported that he accidently left his suit in texas (with all that money their program has theycould have bought him a suit in DC tho.) Other than that, it does seem like he is blowing money he doesnt even have yet, but at 21-22 if you knew you had a guaranteed 15 mill at least wouldnt you have a lil fun with the money? You cant take it with u when you die:winker:
