Titans' Adam Humphries explains decision to pass on Patriots
The fourth-year wide receiver cited New England quarterback Tom Brady's age as a key reason why he chose Tennessee. “Obviously, he’s the G.O.A.T. That’s that simple,” Humphries said, via The Athletic. “But there’s so much that factors into a decision. It was a four-year deal. Who knows how many [years] he’s got left? There’s a lot that goes into it. “Obviously the chance to play with him would have been awesome, but a lot of things factor into that decision. Ultimately, I thought this was coming here to a team that was on the rise and with young talent on the offense and a really good defense.— Tennessee Titans (@Titans)
“Steve and Eddie will be forever linked as two of the driving forces for our team in the late 90’s and early 2000’s,” Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a release.
“They were the heart and soul of the team and each made the other a better player and ultimately led to a great deal of team success. Their statistics will forever live in our record books, but their play and sacrifice is what our fans will always remember. For that and all that they have done for our team, the number 9 and 27 will be retired with the all-time franchise greats.”
McNair and George join Jim Norton, Elvin Bethea, Earl Campbell, Mike Munchak, Bruce Matthews and Warren Moon in having their numbers retired by the franchise.

McNair was selected by the then-Houston Oilers with the third overall pick of the 1995 draft and amassed the most wins of any quarterback in the team's history over his 11-year career. He also had a brief stint with the Ravens before retiring in 2008. The All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection was shot to death in Nashville in July 2009 at the age of 36.
George, 45, was the 14th overall pick out of Ohio State the following year after winning the Heisman Trophy and went on to become the franchise's all-time leader in career rushing yards. The All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl selection is also the only running back in NFL history to have 300 or more carries for eight straight seasons.
George retired in 2004 after spending the final season of his career with the Cowboys.
