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.

Titans | Fisher Standing Behind George

Thu, 21 Jul 2005 06:22:27 -0700

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.

He deserves that." George said on the NFL Network's NFL Total Access this week, he still wants to play and that the Titans remain his first choice.

Wed, 01 Jun 2005 18:55:46 -0700

Adam Schefter, of NFL.com, reports the Jacksonville Jaguars remain concerned with the condition of RB Fred Taylor's (knee) surgically repaired knee. They are so concerned they have been looking for a veteran replacement running back. If Taylor can't go, unproven backup RB LaBrandon Toefield would be the team's featured back. More and more, it looks like the Jaguars will be adding another veteran back to their roster. They could make a move for a running back such as RB Travis Henry or RB Eddie George.

Cowboys | Running Back by Committee

Fri, 03 Sep 2004 17:56:17 -0700

Jaime Aron, of the Associated Press, reports running back by committee appears in store for the Dallas Cowboys in 2004, as head coach Bill Parcells doesn't plan to name a starting running back for the first week of the NFL season until he gets to Minnesota for their opening game against the Minnesota Vikings. "Who starts in the game seems to be of prime importance ... but I don't know why. It doesn't make any difference," Parcells said. "How we do it could be from week to week a changeable thing." RBs Eddie George, Julius Jones or possibly even FB Richie Anderson are in the mix to open as the team's "starter." Parcells believes it's a silly discussion because all three backs will get their share of action.
