    This week is going to be CRAZY, if the lockout is approved. All rookies reporting, Vets coming to facilities. Free agency to begin. Unsigned free agents signing. Oh boy can't wait.

    If the players don't agree on this thing tomorrow, I'm gonna put my nutsack on Goodell's drumset... even though I'm more pissed at the players right now.

    Why? No reason to be mad at them.

    Did you really expect them to sign a 70-page document, that took 3-months to complete, without reading it word for word and then analyzing it? Takes more than a day to do.

    The lockout is over according to ESPN. Lockout to be lifted Monday.

    Updating a previous item, Drew Brees' email to teammates reportedly outlined a timetable that would have full free agency beginning at noon ET Tuesday.
    "It now looks like ... it will be open free agency," said Brees. "There will be no 3 day grace period for teams to sign their own players. It will be open for anyone to sign anywhere."

    That actually helps the Titans, sure we have FAs like Tulloch and Babin... but most people don't want them even to return. Tulloch and Babin both want big paychecks and the Titans usually don't get big paychecks. Especially to players like Tulloch who are short, average athlete, horrible at coverage, but a great tackler. And Babin who only gets sacks when he's 10 yards off from the tackle and horrible at stopping the run.

    I think teams will sign as many players as they can, I'm sure they've already worked out their targets and a plan to contact multiple at once. Then they can release them later if they don't pan out. All of the UDFA's are out there too
