Titans | Fisher Standing Behind George
Paul Kuharsky, of the Tennessean, reports Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said he will be a resounding reference for free agent RB Eddie George (Cowboys) when he attempts to sign with an NFL team. "I'm confident Eddie still has it, that he can be productive and play, that he can be the back for somebody. And I am hopeful that he gets the opportunity. Selfishly I thought maybe it would come here. But the way things look with Travis and Chris (Brown), it appears to be unlikely," Fisher said Wednesday, July 20. Fisher said the 2005 Titans' double-barreled backfield signals a philosophical shift for the franchise, away from the sort of workhorse back role George filled. George said he was watching the running back situations with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. He'd happily field a call from any team looking for help during training camp or even after the season starts.
