    SUMMARY: The Tennessee Titans have responded to a grievance filed by the NFL Players Association on behalf of quarterback Steve McNair. McNair's agent, Bus Cook, initiated talks with the NFLPA after the team barred McNair from Baptist Sports Park on April 3. The Titans have liability concerns because of McNair' $23.46 million salary cap number and $9 million base salary. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Titans would be responsible in the event McNair is injured on team property. The Titans are willing to pay McNair the $110 per day (which is what players are paid to attend offseason workouts) if he works out at D1 Sports Fitness in Franklin. A hearing on the filed grievance, which could be scheduled several weeks or months from now, could be held within 10 days.

    dontdraftcutler We can't be that bad, can we?

    at least it's a step in the right direction....? Right?


    Mcnair is gone, this is a formality. An attempt to neuter the grievance.

    I'm still not sure he is completely gone. I wonder if Steve would consider renegotiating his terms like he intimated earlier if we wind up taking Young.

    I still think what happens to McNair depends entirely on the draft. Who we draft will determine what we are willing to do with Steve. If its Leinhart he will probably be released if its Young or Cutler the Titans will do everything they can to keep him 2 or 3 years.
