Nashville Tennessean: As the Titans packed up Monday, QB Kerry Collins
reiterated his feelings from a few months back. Yet after a season in which he
guided the Titans to the NFL's best record and the AFC's top seed, his words
carry more weight. He wants to return to Tennessee as the starter. "I made my
case known, that I'd like to be here and feel that I can be a part of several
more good seasons. I have several good years left in me, I know that," Collins
said. "I will pack up and go somewhere else. I don't want to, but that's the
reality of this business… I am a starter in this league and if nothing
materializes that way I will retire." Just 2 days into the offseason, Fisher
wasn't prepared to declare his plans at QB, but he said the Titans would like to
re-sign Collins. The Titans prefer a salary cap-friendly, 2-year deal in the
range of $4 million plus incentives, and there are indications they envision him
remaining the starter. Collins replaced Young late in the Week 1 win over the
Jaguars, and Young spent the rest of the season as a backup. The Titans went on
to finish 13-4. Young was not in the locker room Monday when it was open to the
media. Fisher said Young would be on the roster next season, but estimated the
36-year-old Collins has 2 or 3 years of football left.
