    SUMMARY: The Titans newest WR David Givens went through quite a lot the days following the beginning of the free agency period including a bogus article published on the Cleveland Browns website saying he'd been signed by the Browns and an erroneous article published in the Houston Chronicle saying a trip to visit the Texans had been cancelled because he'd resigned with the Patriots. Over a 72 hour period, he visited three teams, went through physicals with each and lost weight because of the stress involved with the process. In the mix was The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt contacting Givens's agent to express the Titans interest and a mysterious Eddie George jersey which may have been an omen.

    If I recall I think he said that when he was in Houston visiting the Texans he saw someone in a Titans' #27 jersey and viewed it as some sort of omen that he would eventually sign in Tennessee.

    If that's the way he thinks he should take 2 twice a day.

    from the article:

    ''As I [Givens’ agent] was talking he said, 'Brad, Brad. Somebody just walked by wearing an Eddie George jersey. Do you think it's a sign?' I told him I didn't know but we should take a look at Nashville. David agreed if [Houston] stayed south of 20 he'd get on the plane."

    Less than 36 hours later, Givens was the Titans' No. 1 receiver, having rejected the lesser offers to go and play for his original hometown team, the team that was once the Houston Oilers but now played in a town he'd never visited and knew little about.

    Am I the only one curious as to why a local newspaper beat writer was expressing the Titans interest in Givens to his agent?
