NFL.com NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 31, 2006) -- The Tennessee Titans must allow Steve McNair to work out on their property as long as he has a contract with the team, an arbitrator ruled. Arbitrator John Feerick heard more than seven hours of testimony May 16 on charges that the Titans breached McNair's contract by barring him from working out at the team's headquarters. The union filed the grievance, arguing he should be allowed to work out on the property or be released. General Counsel Richard Berthelsen called it a victory for the NFL Players Association and McNair. The Titans originally told McNair on April 3 he wasn't allowed to work out on the property because they feared the liability of a $23.46 million salary-cap hit if McNair got hurt. Negotiations to reduce that cap number have been nearly nonexistent. Tennessee allowed McNair's agent, Bus Cook, to talk with the Baltimore Ravens during the NFL draft in April after the team drafted Vince Young of Texas with the No. 3 overall pick. Cook worked out a deal, but a trade fell through when the Titans called the Ravens' offer insignificant. McNair is under contract for the 2006 season.
