foxsports:Titans finally trade QB McNair to Ravens
for all the pft haters.....from the out scooped Jay Glazier:
Steve McNair's long-awaited trade to the Baltimore Ravens has finally taken place.
FOXSports.com has learned that the Titans have agreed to trade the quarterback to the Ravens for a fourth-round pick. However, the trade is contingent on McNair passing a physical with the Ravens.
An off-season of turmoil between McNair and the only team he's ever played for came to a head April 3 when the Titans told the 2003 co-MVP he couldn't work out on their property without a cheaper deal because they worried about the liability from a $23.46 million salary cap hit if he got hurt.
McNair won the right to return last week from an arbitrator. But the Titans told him in a letter he had to take a physical before being allowed to work out.
Early last month, McNair and the Ravens came to financial terms on a deal provided the Titans and Ravens could work out a trade, but at that time no trade was consummated.
That deal included an approximately $11 million signing bonus and a $1 million salary for 2006 in a five-year deal that McNair's agent Bus Cook called a pretty good offer. But any trade trade fell through at the time when the Titans called Baltimore's offer "insignificant."
The Titans' last offer was a $3 million signing bonus and a $2.5 million salary for 2006, creating $6.5 million of salary cap space.
The Titans also selected Vince Young of Texas with the third pick overall as the franchise's future quarterback.
