Titans | Still a chance Hopkins could return to the Titans

Sat, 01 Apr 2006 06:42:28 -0800

The Tennessean reports despite talk that he wants to retire, free agent OT Brad Hopkins (Titans) said he hasn't completely ruled out a return to the Tennessee Titans, if they are interested in re-signing him, but isn't sure anything will develop. He said he's "90 percent" sure he's played his last game. As the 2005 regular season was winding down, Hopkins and offensive line coach Mike Munchak bounced around the idea of Hopkins perhaps returning to the Titans in 2006 as a reserve. Hopkins isn't so sure the role fits him, however.

Wed, 01 Mar 2006 05:40:37 -0800

Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessean, reports Tennessee Titans OT Brad Hopkins know he may be released from the team and agent Mark Bartelstein sees it that way too. "The Titans have a tough cap situation which we are sensitive to. If I had to guess right now I would say probably Brad will be on the market as a free agent,'' said Bartelstein. "He'd love to stay in Tennessee, but I don't know if it is going to be possible from a cap standpoint.'' Hopkins had a $5 million option added to his contract last offseason that would attach 2007-2009, but the Titans won't pay the option. His scheduled base salary of $4.25 million for 2006 and $1.5 million roster bonus are the big issues right now. The Titans recently asked Hopkins to take a significant pay cut, but he declined.
