Report: State will put $500 million toward new Titans stadium, with a catch

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is pushing for $500 million in state bonds to go toward the Titans' new stadium, but it comes with a significant condition – it’s earmarked to be part of an enclosed venue, Axios reports.NashvilleStadiumSkyline

Metro Nashville and the Titans still have much to hash out with regard to financing and planning a new building to replace Nissan Stadium, which they’ve determined would cost $1.2 billion to refurbish, enough that a new stadium is preferable. [Unlocked]

Tom Brady and the Bucs, Cardinals coming to Nashville for joint practices

PALM BEACH, Fla. – Tom Brady is coming back to Tennessee this summer.

The Titans plan to hold joint training camp practice sessions with Tampa Bay and Arizona, Mike Vrabel said at the NFL owner’s meetings Monday morning.BradyVrabel

That reveals the team’s home schedule for the preseason when the team will host two preseason games and travel for one in a season when they are home for eight regular-season games and on the road for nine.

He also said the Titans will open their season on the road. [Unlocked]

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Greetings mailbaggers and dear readers. 

Welcome to the weekend. Hope you are well-rested after that late basketball and soccer Thursday night. Exciting stuff.Titans Mural

Thanks for the good questions.

Let's dig in.

David Jackson The assumption is that Henry comes back and is back to his old self. What if he struggles and never gets back to his pre-injury form? Do you think Titans are/should be prepared for that possibility? If they need to switch to a pass-first offense can they do it with current personnel? Should that impact their draft?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Hey now.

It was good to gather and discuss what the Titans have and haven't done and where they stand right now.Kuharsky broadcast

Austin Hooper and Robert Woods are part of the team now, but you are very curious about what's still to come at tight end and receiver and we delved into that.

The other big topic was what's to come on the offensive line. We talked a lot about the possible scenarios for Dillon Radunz and what's left to fill depending where he lands -- and if they know where they intend to play him ahead of the draft or not.

We covered plenty more. I hope you will pop in and watch or listen and join us next time.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Robert Woods’ first instruction from his new bosses was not to put a timetable on his return from the torn ACL he suffered in his left knee on Nov. 12 in a practice with the Rams.

The Titans could be waiting on him in training camp or even at the start of the regular season, and even if he’s playing they may not get the receiver they traded for until later on.Robert Woods

We saw Taylor Lewan, who suffered the injury in October, and Bud Dupree, whose came in early December, take some time to get back to themselves.

But once Woods is recovered and able, he intends to put a premium on practice.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Austin Hooper didn’t make himself sound like a hot property when he was introduced to Titans’ media Monday.

Asked why he joined the Titans, he said, “an offer helps.” Ultimately he said he chose between two.Austin Hooper

Limited interest served Tennessee, which snatched him up for a year at $6 million.

In signing him just a few days after he was released in a cap move by the Cleveland Browns, the Titans conceded a 2021 failure at tight end.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The biggest element of the Titans’ trade for veteran receiver Robert Woods is that the team should not have to rely on a rookie receiver as a top-two option at the start of the 2022 season.

And so after A.J. Brown the team’s top options started with Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, a nice option whose absolute max on his very best day is as a No. 3 on a low-quantity passing day when Brown and the No. 2 and a tight end are very active. [Unlocked]
