HEAD COACH MIKE MUNCHAK (on if Andrew Luck reminds him of other quarterbacks) Not really. You would never think he’s a rookie. I think he looks very comfortable. He looks like Peyton (Manning) on the play-action stuff. He’s very comfortable … Continue reading
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Although summer’s official start is a couple weeks away, Titans receiver Kenny Britt has already put more than a toe in the water.
Britt is trying to return from a torn ACL and MCL before the start of his fourth season, and part of his recovery has involved running in the pool. He said the aquatic training has helped him because of the buoyancy the water provides.
“Running in the pool, you relieve all the pressure of your body weight,” Britt said. “When you’re on the field, it’s all your body weight and all your pressure. The water helps you relieve all that pain and all that weight, so it felt good. I’m going to test it out on the field (today).”
Britt has shown explosive play-making abilities in his first three years. He led the AFC in receiving yards (271) and had three touchdowns after the first two games last season, but suffered the season-ending knee injury against Denver in Week 3.

(on what he is looking for from Jake Locker)
When they are on the field, you just want to see guys getting comfortable with the offense him and Matt (Hasselbeck) with having the first offseason to truly learn from what we did last year and watch the cut-ups, which they have been doing. The quarterbacks are doing exactly what we hoped they would do and this offseason is as valuable to them as it is to anybody. We all know the problems with last year coming in like they all did and not knowing exactly what we were trying to accomplish. I think this year they have a lot of tape to watch and they have been doing that. They have been coming out and doing a lot of technique work which you do this time of year and they have all been doing a great job like we said. We are real happy with that position. Now it is a matter of doing it competitively with the players, so that is the phase we are working on now.
The Titans would like to find another playmaker to pair with defensive end Derrick Morgan, the team’s first-round draft pick in 2010.
