Things are definitely looking optimistic on the labor front, but with those meetings taking place in private, we will continue to focus on the news that directly relates to what happens on the field.
No, that's not your local real estate agent, it's Brett Ratliff, the longest-tenured NFL QB the Titans have…for now.
Titans will stick with Britt, could see Collins return … Last week was not one to remember for WR Kenny Britt. He avoided serious legal ramifications by pleading to a lesser charge stemming from car-chase incident that took place in April and had to pay a small fine. However, just one day later, he was arrested and charged with obstruction, tampering with evidence, and resisting arrest after officers in New Jersey saw what they thought was marijuana in his hand. Britt is once again expected to avoid any serious charges, but the Titans are not expected to let him off easy although they do consider him the best player on the team outside of RB Chris Johnson. Speaking of the Titan O, QB Kerry Collins, currently a free agent, has an expressed an interest in returning to the team in the right situation, saying, “If it makes sense [...]

Brady organizes workouts… Patriot QB Tom Brady is back in the Boston area this week, so he figured he’d call up his teammates
Tom Brady had his fun, but now it's time to get back to work in Boston.
and organize a workout. ESPNBoston.com reports that Brady, who has been working out on his own in California after undergoing foot surgery in January, is back in Boston for some charity work. With charity work set for the weekend, Brady’s Patriot teammates have joined him, and several players are set for organized workouts today. We’re still waiting to see if the Patriots will add a bigger WR to the mix to replace Randy Moss, but one candidate remains deep threat Brandon Tate, who has had a limited role in two seasons. For now, the Patriot offense will continue to be difficult to predict, as Brady spreads the ball around between Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Aaron Hernandez, and Rob Gronkowski, and RBs Shane Vereen and [...]
We hope you all had a great holiday weekend, but we are ready to get back at it here at the Fantasy Guru Global Headquarters in what has become an increasingly warm Southern New Jersey. Today we’ll update you on an old QB riding into the sunset (no not him), the rehab of some important receivers, and a couple of young QBs holding workouts.
Country music star? Stetson Man? Guy who stares off into the distance? Just a few options for Kerry Collins' post-NFL life.
Collins may not return to Titans … as many, including us, expected he would. Titan OG Jake Scott was on Sirius/XM NFL Radio last week and said he didn’t think Collins would return to “be a nursemaid to a young kid” referring to rookie QB and major developmental project Jake Locker. Scott said money is not an issue for Collins, whom he believes could “ride off into the sunset.” With Vince Young not returning, the Titans are very thin at the QB position and don’t have anyone on the roster with significant playing experience. Rusty Smith and Brett Ratliff are the team’s top options right now, so if Collins doesn’t return, they’ll have to find a [...]
The Fantasy Guru Daily returns today after a productive one-day hiatus. Yesterday, the staff joined Greg Cosell, Adam Caplan, Brian Billick, Ron Jaworski, Sal Paolantonio, Ray Didinger, and others for a mock draft at NFL Films. It was a great way to hear different opinions on the players and draft strategy, and we came out of it feeling like we have an even greater grasp on what this year’s rookie class is like. On to today’s news…
Schedule has flexibility … While we remain cautiously optimistic that Judge Susan Nelson will end the lockout and the owners will lose their appeal – therefore giving us football in a month or two – the NFL has built in some flexibility in the 2011 schedule to help make sure that every game will be played. We already knew there were two weeks of flexibility, as the off week between the conference title games and the Super Bowl can be eliminated and the Super Bowl can be moved back a week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter points out that every matchup in Week Three features teams that share a common bye week. In other words, if three weeks were lost, Week Three games could be made [...]
