Titans begin gathering in small groups for informal workouts

The Tennessee Titans -- the ones who stuck around Nashville this offseason -- are taking a small-group approach to informal workouts during the NFL's lockout, a couple Titanstold *The Tennessean* this week.

Tight end Jared Cook told the newspaper that a group that includes himself, quarterbacks Rusty Smith and Chris Simms, linebacker Gerald McRath, and safeties Nick Schommer and Donnie Nickey is working out at one Nashville-area high school. That group could expand because cornerback Cortland Finnegan took to the airwaves Tuesday night on WNSR-560 and said he's recruiting more teammates for the workout.

Meanwhile, veteran guard Jake Scott and a group of offensive linemen are meeting at another high school, and defensive linemen Jovan Haye and Dave Ball are part of a group working out at Vanderbilt University.

"The community itself has been a great support to us players," Scott told The Tennessean. "The high schools and colleges don't have to open their doors to us and they have been more than willing to do that, and that is great.

"It is always good to have somebody to work with because you are going to push yourself harder. If not a big group, then smaller groups to help each other through this offseason. It just makes it better for everyone."
