Volek Named Titans Starter, Young Waiting in Wings

Vince Young is striving to be THE MAN under center for the NFL Tennessee Titans..

His Pro Education will be a daunting project.

Young must revamp his footwork.

He must learn when to run, and when to stay in the pocket. He also must to figure out how to read complex defenses, recognize blitzes, and how to apply his freelance skills to a structured offense.

One player who already knows that is Titans veteran backup Billy Volek.

For 2-years, Volek backed up an oft-injured Steve McNair, and put up some pretty good numbers in his own right.

Titans staff has already named him the starter for the upcoming season...

Volek is a career 60% passer..

In 9-games as a starter, he's thrown 22-Touchdowns against 12 interceptions.

Titans Mini-Camp ends on Thursday...but they won't be out for long.

Training Camp starts in Mid-July...

The Titans first pre-season game is against the New Orleans Saints August 12th in Nashville.
