    SUMMARY: As the Titans settled one of their offseason priorities with a contract agreement for Kyle Vanden Bosch, nothing has been settled with Steve McNair who turned 33 this week. There has been little movement in negotiations and both sides appear to be sticking to their guns. The Titans have said they could pay a $1 million non-exercise fee and let McNair play out '06 but the cap hit would be anywhere from $13 to $16 million. Meanwhile, McNair would like a long-term deal and wants his '06 salary to remain at the $10 million mark.

    I thought Bus Cook didn't represent Young? Didn't he pick a family relative or something?

    My understanding is the CAP hit will be about the same this year if we pay him the 1.0 million option and keep him one more year as it will be if we cut him. Just pay him the 1.0 mill and let Young be the starter after sitting one year.

    About the same opinion as me, although i do think Mcnair's got enough Titan spirit to play with the Titans for a year or two after that even as a backup

    Jeff made a boo boo. The article doesnt mention Vince Young at all, and Bus is Cutler's agent, not Young's.

    We don't want McNair staying as a backup and certainly McNair will not want that either. McNair is still going to want big $$ if he stays so the best scenario is to have Young sit the bench the first year and then take over.

    He was his agent. He's now more of a consultant.

    I thought the irony too interesting not to comment on. I based that on this:

    "The Madison product will hire Bus Cook as his agent. Cook is also the agent for Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair, Young's mentor, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre." (from the Houston Chronicle)

    I stand corrected. I just found this"

    "Houston sports agent and attorney Major Adams confirms he and his company will represent NFL prospect Vince Young for contract negotiations as well as marketing work. Young is also from Houston.

    Adams says James "Bus" Cook, who represents Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre and Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair, won't have a formal role in Young's representation, but might informally advise him on the negotiation of Young's NFL contract. Media speculation had indicated that Cook would represent Young because McNair is Young's mentor. "

    Whoops.

    "Houston sports agent and attorney Major Adams confirms he and his company will represent NFL prospect Vince Young for contract negotiations as well as marketing work. Young is also from Houston."

    so Young is paying these guys but he might consult informally with Cook?

    Sounds like a major disaster is about to happen

    Bus Cook was on 106.7 last week, and he said he had absolutely nothing to do with representing Vince Young, that he wasnt involved with him at all.
