Tennessee Titans Notes, Quotes 2008-08-28
--FB/TE Casey Cramer admits he is the quintessential underdog every year in camp, trying to hold on to a roster spot. Cramer, picked up off waivers from Carolina in 2006, made it through his first training camp last year without being cut. In all, he has been cut five times in a four-year career.


Speaking of careers, Cramer has been taking advantage of the NFL's Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program the past four years to attend school and do internships in the off-season. Still, he'd like the football part of his job to last as long as possible.

"I'm licensed to do brokerage stuff," Cramer said. "All that stuff is fine, but I think what I realized in working on the education and jobs and internships is that I enjoy football so much more, and it makes me want to do better here while I'm playing, because the game is so much more fun than sitting behind a desk."

--Despite their need for help at the wide receiver position, the Titans just said no to bringing in veteran Joe Horn for a look-see after he was released by the Atlanta Falcons last week. Horn, 36, had just 27 catches last year and has been beset with injury problems, prompting general manager Mike Reinfeldt to say, "At this point, I don't think we would have any interest."

--Third-string QB Ingle Martin has been the Titans' most consistent passer in preseason, completing 12 of 21 passes for 177 yards. Still, Martin is in a roster fight because Tennessee in recent years has kept only two quarterbacks on its 53-man roster. "For people that are on the bubble, every time you get a chance, you've got to take advantage of it, and this being my third=

training camp and third preseason, it's the most comfortable I've been since I've come out of college," he said.

BY THE NUMBERS: 0 - Number of touchdowns scored by the Titans' first-team offense in their first three preseason games. 3 - Where the Titans offense still ranks in preseason yards through three games with a 359-yard average. The bulk of that came from a 495-yard effort in the opener against St. Louis. 5 - The most catches of any Titans receiver in preseason by Biren Ealy. 1 - Interception thrown by Vince Young in preseason. The pass was picked off by Atlanta's Chevis Jackson.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "If I was the coach, I would definitely keep my Ferrari in the garage and bring it out for the regular season." -- LB Keith Bulluck on whether he should rest his strained calf in the preseason finale at Green Bay.
