What the Titans asked Nash to do was pretty basic: show up for camp in shape and at the recommended weight. They didn't give up on him because they thought he had no talent; they cut him loose because they couldn't count on him mentally. Those issues dated back to last training camp. And he went to a team that was willing to use a third round pick on Clarett last year, convinced they could help him turn the corner mentally. Maybe they will fare better with Nash, especially after the Titans gave him a wake-up call that maybe he really needed to get it through his head that you do have to do your part to stay in this league. What did the Broncos have to lose? And why should the Titans keep trying when they had a pretty good stable of backs in camp (plus a second-round draft pick who was guaranteed to get a close look in camp even if he was off to a slow start in the spring) who had put in the work this offseason and deserved their shot at getting those reps?
