Default Agent: McNair could be cut or traded soon

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 30, 2006) -- Steve McNair 's tenure with the Tennessee Titans could be over within the next 24 hours.

His agent said the team is considering releasing McNair or possibly trading him to the Baltimore Ravens.

"We could have something worked out later today or tomorrow," agent Bus Cook said. "We're working on some things."

The Titans drafted Texas quarterback Vince Young with the No. 3 overall pick as McNair's successor, and they already were looking for a way to reduce or shed the $23.46 million salary cap number the co-MVP of 2003 is scheduled to count for in 2006.

"We're working with them and the Ravens," Cook said.

Asked if that meant a release or trade, Cook said he didn't know and didn't care as long as the move puts the 11-year veteran into a good position as a starting quarterback.

Baltimore coach Brian Billick said simply: "Stay tuned."

The NFL Players Association filed a grievance earlier this month when the Titans barred McNair from working out on their property for fear an injury would make them liable for his entire salary-cap number. They are trying to schedule an expedited hearing before an arbitrator, but Cook said the grievance asked for McNair's release.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he couldn't confirm nor deny the report of a potential release or trade.

"But I'd say it's very unlikely," Fisher said.
