Titans Made Contact With Free Agent J.J. Watt


The Titans need a lot of help with their pass rush, so will they be a player in the J.J. Watt sweepstakes?
The Texans released the veteran defensive end last week.
He’s one of only three players in league history to win the NFL defensive player of the year award three times.
Watt’s talent certainly entices Tennessee’s general manager.

Said GM Jon Robinson:”He probably doesn’t remember but I actually worked him out when I was with the Patriots when he was coming out of college. he pushed me around pretty good for about two hours. Yeah we’ve had some contact. It’s early in the stages. I think he’s having. We obviously know his skill set.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
