Which legends stand out for the Houston Oilers/turned Tennessee Titans?
The Houston Oilers were part of the original American Football League in 1960. The league consisted of just eight teams but nonetheless, this franchise from the Lone Star State (born the same year as the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys) would win the AFL’s first two championships.
There would also be some lean times for the franchise. And 1996 proved to be the team’s final season in Houston and at the Astrodome. The Tennessee Oilers would turn into a traveling road show the following two years and finally in ’99, become the Titans. The new look obviously paid off as the club made its first and only Super Bowl appearance in what proved to a be a 23-16 setback to the then-St. Louis Rams.
These days, the team is coming off a 2019 season in which they came up one victory away from a return trip to the “Big Game.” This is a franchise with a rich history on both sides of the ball. From quarterbacks Cheap George Blanda Jersey and Cheap Steve McNair Jersey to running backs Cheap Eddie George Jersey, Chris Henry and current powerhouse Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey. The star wideouts include Cheap Charley Hennigan Jersey, Cheap Ernest Givins Jersey, Cheap Haywood Jeffires Jersey and there’s tight end Cheap Delanie Walker Jersey.
There have been Hall of Fame defenders such as Cheap Ken Houston Jersey, Cheap Elvin Bethea Jersey, Cheap Curley Culp Jersey and Cheap Robert Brazile Jersey to steady warriors such as Cheap Al Smith Jersey, Cheap Ray Childress Jersey, Cheap Cris Dishman Jersey and Cheap Blaine Bishop Jersey, as well as pass-rusher Cheap Jevon Kearse Jersey and reliable Jurrell Casey (traded his offseason to the Denver Broncos).
However, this Mount Rushmore (in alphabetical order) definitely has an offensive feel to it. So which four players were chosen?
CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Former Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Cheap Albert Haynesworth Jersey was arrested Monday after he was accused of threatening and yelling at his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
Cleveland, Tennessee, police officers responded at 4:34 p.m. to a report that Haynesworth was yelling at his ex-girlfriend, according to a statement from the police. The woman told officers Haynesworth had driven there from his home in Franklin, Tennessee, 160 miles away, after making threats to physically harm her and her boyfriend. No physical assault was reported, according to the police statement.
“After being told multiple times to stop yelling and cursing, Haynesworth was taken into custody, charged with domestic assault and disorderly conduct and transported to the Bradley County Justice Center,” the statement reads.

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said Tuesday that Haynesworth had been released on $1,500 bond. An email to a lawyer who has previously represented Haynesworth was not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
Haynesworth has been receiving dialysis since his kidneys failed. After he revealed the news last summer, Vanderbilt University Medical Center said it had more than 1,000 calls and offers to donate a kidney or ask about the process within a day. However, he has not yet received a transplant.
Haynesworth played 10 seasons in the NFL. He spent his first seven seasons with the Titans, who selected him No. 15 overall in the 2002 draft out of the University of Tennessee. Haynesworth also played for Washington, New England and Tampa Bay.
He was selected as an All-Pro after the 2007 and 2008 seasons and had 30-plus sacks in 123 games.
Haynesworth had his greatest season in 2008, when he had 8.5 sacks while leading the Titans to a 13-3 record and the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC before they lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional playoffs.
