A large contingent of Titans' players surprised season ticket holders throughout Nashville on Wednesday by hand-delivering jumbo-sized tickets along with other Titans' memorabilia, TitansOnline.com reported.
WR Marc Mariani and LB Gerald McRath brought the tickets to Titans' fans C.J. and Tom Spraggins, a couple who have been loyal Oilers/Titans fans for more than three decades. The couple considered discontinuing their season tickets in Febuary when C.J. was placed on a transplant list after suffering from severe heart complications. Miraculously, C.J was on hte waiting list less than two months before receiving the transplant. Rejuvenated, C.J now has the energy to return to Titans' games this season.
“I told C.J that's my motivation for camp,” McRath told TitansOnline.com. “There's always someone going through more than what you can imagine.”
Veterans report on Friday
While quarterbacks and rookies reported for camp on Tuesday, the remainder of the team will have until Friday to arrive for training camp. Jaguars veterans are required to report on Thursday, Texans' veterans are also scheduled to report on Friday and Colts veterans are scheduled to report on Saturday. The Titans will practice with the Falcons in Dalton, Ga. on Aug. 6 and will finish camp on Aug. 21.
No news on Wright
Wide receiver Kendall Wright, the No. 20 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, remained unsigned on Thursday evening. Wright, Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon and Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill are the only first round picks that are still unsigned. Wright's deal is expected to be similar to a four-year, $8.7 million contract reached by the Bucs and DE Adrian Clayborn, the No. 20 pick in 2011.
Jeff Nalley, Wright's agent, could not be reached for comment.
