NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Cornerback Jason McCourty is ready for the Tennessee Titans to open their doors, so he can walk in and get back to work.
The NFL players voted for a final deal Monday days after owners NFL players approved a tentative agreement putting an end to the lockout and the league's longest work stoppage.
The Titans face several challenges due to the lengthy lockout. Mike Munchak was the last NFL head coach hired in February, they need a veteran quarterback to start this season and mentor Jake Locker, the No. 8 pick overall, and enough new coaches have been hired that name badges may be needed when training camp opens.
McCourty said he introduced himself to new defensive coordinator Jerry Gray and shook hands but that was it before the lockout.
The Titans have told NewsChannel 5 that they are expecting to start training camp on Friday, with practice on Saturday.
Players are expected to arrive at Baptist Sports Park Tuesday morning.
On Wednesday, 10 teams will open training camp.
On Thursday players can be cut or waived.
And then on Friday, unrestricted free agency begins and teams can begin signing their own and other teams players.
