Report: Titans reached out to JaMarcus Russell

After Titans quarterback Jake Locker went down with a hip injury Sunday that will keep him out for possibly 4-8 games, the team used the early part of the week to kick the tires on some veteran street free agents to add depth behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. Those names included David Carr and John Skelton.

But the Titans also reached out to JaMarcus Russell, the 2007 first-overall pick who last took an NFL snap in January 2010, to gauge his interest in returning, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Russell, who mounted a comeback in recent months that included dropping 51 pounds and a tryout with the Bears, remains unavailable because he's rehabbing a knee injury.

Not to worry, though; in July, the Raiders paid Russell $3 million in a settlement over his rookie contract.
