Titans | Roster overhaul coming

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 03:49:06 -0800

Tennessee Titans CEO Tommy Smith, fighting through a 2-10 season, has said he wants more "tough guys" on the roster in order to replicate the success the team had a decade ago. "The game has changed, I know it has,'' Smith said. "But guys like Eddie George never backed down from anybody. Steve McNair, he was the heart and soul of this organization. We need more guys like that, guys who are good people, but when they get in between the stripes, they play hard and they play tough." Smith said guys like OT Taylor Lewan and QB Zach Mettenberger fit his definition.

NCAA | George may run for mayor

Fri, 27 Jan 2006 06:34:05 -0800

Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessean, reports former RB Eddie George may consider running for mayor of Nashville. "I wouldn't put that outside the realm of possibility," George said. "Down the line, you never know what the future might hold. It's something I've thought about, and it could be a situation where a few years down the road I may think about it more." George said he's still disappointed that no team gave him a chance last season, and all but conceded his NFL career is over. "If an opportunity comes up for me to play somewhere I am going to look at it and evaluate it and see what's right for me. If it makes sense I'll move on it, and if not I'll probably move on and call it a day," George said.

Titans | George Visits; Says He Still Wants to Play

Thu, 11 Aug 2005 21:38:10 -0700

Teresa M. Walker, of The Associated Press, reports free agent RB Eddie George visited the Tennessee Titans' training camp Wednesday, Aug. 10. George said it was emotional being back on the field where he spent so much time before asking to be released in July 2004 in a salary dispute. "It's good to see the old guys, see the coaches, some guys I played with and you know, it's a good feeling,'' George said. George keeps a house in Nashville, and he is training and staying in shape in case he does get a call. For now, he is scheduled to do television work for WKRN-2 in Nashville. ''Maybe something will come up in the next couple of weeks, but I'm not at all complaining right now (that) I have to be in camp in two-a-days,'' George said.
