Titans | No Truth to Meggett, Phillips Speculation

Sun, 06 Jun 1999 11:20:00 -0700

Paul Kuharsky reports in the Tennessean that Titans coach Jeff Fisher said that there is no truth to the speculation that his team is looking to sign either RB Dave Meggett or RB Lawrence Phillips. The team has set a precedent of wanting players without off the field issues and appears they want to keep it that way. The team is satisfied with current backup RB Rodney Thomas and barring an injury like the one that affected him for most of 1998, he should be the primary backup this year as well. If rookie Darran Hall of Colorado St. can't get the job done as punt returner the team may turn to Anthony Dorsett or they may look at a Free Agent like Roell Preston or Latario Rachal.
