Titans' OC Palmer promises to get star WRs on field together
It may sound ridiculously obvious that you would want your best playmakers on the field together as much as possible.
But that hasn't always been the case with the Tennessee Titans. Two years ago, Tennessee claimed Randy Moss off waivers right after Kenny Britt suffered a major hamstring injury.
Once Britt came back and was able to play, instead of having both guys in the lineup, then-Titans coach Jeff Fisher said they could not be paired together because they both played the X position. Not many bought the theory, as Moss wasted away on the bench late in the year and eventually went into a one-year retirement in 2011.
So when offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said Thursday that first-round pick Kendall Wright is currently learning Britt's X position, it brought up memories of the Britt-Moss conundrum on Fisher's watch.
Not to worry says Palmer, who promised that if Wright, Britt (currently recovering from a second knee procedure) and Nate Washington, a 1,000-yard receiver from a year ago are all healthy, he will find a way to get them on the field at the same time, says TitanInsider.com
"I promise you if Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington are all healthy, then we will find a way to get them on the field together," Palmer said.
That has to be a relief to Titans fans who are probably still wondering what if over the thought of Moss and Britt running routes at the same time in 2010.
