    Tennessee Titans: Steve McNair reportedly is willing to restructure his contract to help the Titans get below the salary cap even though the 10-year veteran remains undecided about playing next season. The Tennessean said in Thursday's editions that McNair and the Titans exchanged proposals that could save the team more than $5 million against the salary cap. The Titans are $27 million over the cap and have to be under it by March 1. McNair's agent, Bus Cook, told the newspaper the quarterback still hasn't made up his mind about retirement. McNair, 32, underwent sternum surgery in December. ''He said he feels good, the surgery feels good, and the bone graft seems to be working,'' Cook told The Tennessean. The Titans could lower McNair's $7.5 million salary for 2005 to the NFL minimum of $765,000 and give him the difference in a signing bonus, which would be prorated over the final five years of the contract. If he keeps playing past 2005, the report said the Titans will almost certainly re-work his contract because he's due a $50 million bonus next offseason. [​IMG] That's gotta be a misprint....

    I'm sure they meant 5 million?

    I can't imagine he'll be retiring just as Norm Chow is headed to Nashville to be his new offensive coordinator. All of the stories about Chow mentioned how working with McNair was one of the things that persuaded him to leave USC.
