Tennessee Titans Notes, Quotes 2009-04-27
--The Titans were reported and rumored to be in the Anquan Boldin sweepstakes that never materialized. An ESPN report of the Titans offering a player and a second-round pick for Boldin was retracted by the network's website.


Coach Jeff Fisher addressed the situation shortly after the Titans drafted Kenny Britt with their first pick.

"Let me clarify things, there was a lot of speculation and a lot of reports yesterday evening ... and we never at any time made an offer to the Arizona Cardinals," Fisher said. "We left several messages with them last night, but they never returned our calls last night. We didn't get in touch with them until before the draft today and they said they weren't interested in moving him."

--The Titans have drafted a tight end of the future in Jared Cook of South Carolina, but still will keep the franchise tag on current starter Bo Scaife.

GM Mike Reinfeldt said Sunday after the draft that the Titans won't remove the franchise tag from Scaife, whom they have at a salary of $4.46 million in 2009. Scaife has yet to sign the tender, and wants a long-term deal. The chances of that might have diminished with Cook on board.

--Titans RB LenDale White is the most "svelte" he has been since joining the Titans. White showed up at the offseason program at 238 pounds. That is a major drop, considering he weighed early 270 pounds when he reported for offseason work in 2007 as the starter.

White is in the final year of his rookie contract, and will be an unrestricted free agent unless there is an uncapped year in 2010, in which case he would be a restricted free agent.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "No, I wouldn't be expecting one right now. But when I go in and handle my business I know I will be expecting one similar. Man, Albert broke the bank, didn't he?" -- Second-round pick Sen'Derrick Marks on whether he expects his rookie contract to be like the man he is replacing, Albert Haynesworth, who got $100 million from the Redskins.
