RTC: Titans lost out on Day 3

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...

With Charlie Whitehurst in the fold the Titans are changing direction at backup quarterback, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

The Titans lost out on LaMarr Woodley and Jason Hatcher. Wyatt reviews the day.

Touting Whitehurst as an authority on Ken Whisenhunt's offense leaves David Boclair of the Nashville Post feeling as if the team isn’t confident enough in Jake Locker.

To which I say: I understand Boclair’s point. I don’t endorse signing guys to mentor rather than because of their ability to play. That’s part of what they are getting in Whitehurst. But it’s different at quarterback. I don’t have a problem with the angle where Whitehurst can be a help because of his familiarity with Whisenhunt.

Why teams are spending like mad in free agency, from Kevin Clark of the Wall Street Journal. “This is football's new financial reality.”

The Titans made Al Woods feel at home right away, says Craig Peters of the Titans' website.

Other teams signing guys saved the Titans from themselves, says Raj Prashad of Cover 32.
