It’s not unusual to hear about current NFL players training with former players as they get ready for a season, but Titans cornerback Logan Ryan’s choice of workouts with one of the franchise’s past stars is a bit off the standard path.
The Titans knocked a team out of the playoffs for the first time since George was part of the backfield when they beat the Chiefs last season and they’d like to extend their season even further this time. Ryan will play a big role in that attempt and success could lead others to the ring come the 2019 offseason.
Masoli passed for 333 yards this week in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 18-13 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. It was Masoli’s ninth consecutive game with at least 300 passing yards, tying the CFL record.
Sam Etcheverrey and Kent Austin also had nine games in a row with more than 300 passing yards.
Masoli gets a chance to break the record July 19 when Hamilton hosts Saskatchewan in a rematch.
He leads the CFL with 1,378 passing yards in four games, though Masoli has only four touchdowns and has thrown four interceptions.
The former Mississippi standout led the Ticats to a 6-4 finish last season after taking over as the starter, earning him a contract extension and the starting job. But when Hamilton added Manziel, it was presumed Masoli wouldn’t keep his job.
Alas, Manziel has yet to play.
