The Tennessee Titans and the agent for Eugene Amano still have not finalized an extension for the starting left guard.
The two sides were close to an extension over the weekend and into Monday, but according to Amano’s agent Rocky Arceneaux, the talks had not progressed as of Tuesday afternoon.
Amano was part of an offensive line that helped Chris Johnson rush for 2,006 yards this season, becoming only the sixth running back in NFL history to reach the 2,000-yard plateau.
Both Amano and 39-year-old center Kevin Mawae are free agents, but the Titans have yet to open any negotiations with Mawae’s agent regarding a new contract.
Amano, 28, was a seventh-round pick out of Southeast Missouri in 2004.
Young situation unchanged
With Vince Young due a $4.25 million roster bonus next month and due to count $14.2 million against the salary cap for 2010, there had been speculation that the Titans might attempt to extend Young’s deal to lower his cap figure, since he had regained the starting quarterback position last season.
However, there has been no movement on that front, according to a league source, and the Titans might be inclined to simply pay the bonus and take a wait-and-see approach regarding an extension.
Efforts to reach Young’s agent Major Adams were unsuccessful.
Young is 26-13 as a starting quarterback for Tennessee since being the third overall pick out of the University of Texas in 2006. He threw for 10 touchdown passes and had seven interceptions in helping the Titans win eight of their final 10 games.
