Running back Eddie George is still a Titan at the moment. Currently on his homeymoon with his new wife, but the honeymoon with the Titans might be
over. George is looking to receive over $4 million in base salary for the 04-05 season and has currently shown little interest in negotiating a salary
decreas. The Titans need to sign their 13 draftees from this year and need about an extra $3 million to do it.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans finished their final minicamp Thursday with Eddie George's future with the team still unsettled.
Coach Jeff Fisher is confident the team's career rushing leader will be on the roster when the Titans open training camp July 30.
"I think everyone expects it to be resolved by then," Fisher said.
The Titans have wanted to rework George's contract since February, but he declined and was paid a $1 million bonus in March. He agreed to talk after a
meeting in June with Fisher and general manager Floyd Reese.
George is due $4.25 million in base salary this season, counting $7.3 million against the cap. The Titans need at least $3 million in salary cap space
to sign their rookie class.
Must be rough to be a millionaire and not have enough money. Now where did I put that extra packet of Ramen?
