NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee quarterback Vince Young is going all out to bring some of the Titans receivers to Houston to work out during a break in training in Nashville.
Since being drafted in April 2006, the Houston native has talked about the importance of establishing a bond with his new teammates.
Receiver Brandon Jones said Young, who's footing the bill for his teammates, made it clear their attendance was important.
``And he wasn't going to take no for an answer,'' Jones told The Tennessean. ``At first I was like, 'I can't get down there until Wednesday,' and he was like, 'No, no, get your butt down here.' Everybody had to put their excuses aside and we are now here and having fun and working.''
The Titans finished their last minicamp May 31 and aren't scheduled for another workout until June 19.
``Vince thought it would be a good idea to keep working, and it's definitely beneficial in a number of ways,'' Jones said.
The Titans need their receivers to fill the void following the departures of Drew Bennett and Bobby Wade, the team's top two receivers last year. Third-year receivers Courtney Roby and Roydell Williams are also in Houston, along with undrafted rookie Clinton Solomon.
``Once I heard they were thinking about doing this, I wanted to be a part of it, and I switched some things around to make it happen,'' Roby said. ``It is good to get away and into a new element and continue training and building more of a bond. It is something that will definitely help us.''
