Titans Believe They Have Advantage In Training Camp With Munchak
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans believe they already have a big advantage heading into their second training camp with coach Mike Munchak. This time around, they actually had an offseason together.
The last head coach hired in 2011, Munchak had his first offseason wiped out by the NFL lockout.
The Titans arrived at training camp learning names of new coaches and teammates like veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck along with scaled-back versions of the offense and defense. They managed a 9-7 record despite losing Kenny Britt to a torn right ACL and MCL in the third game. And Chris Johnson turned in a career-worst 1,047 yards after a holdout nearly all preseason. They just missed the AFC's final wild-card berth to Cincinnati on a tiebreaker.
Now they report Friday for Munchak's second training camp with no holdouts and receiver Kendall Wright, the 20th pick overall in the draft, expected to be signed before the first practice July 28. Their exhibition opener is Aug. 11 at Seattle.
