Players Claim ‘Excessive’ Security at Titans Facility

Titans players were met by “excessive” security Thursday when they arrived at the Titans practice facility when they attempted to report under a federal judge’s ruling to lift the NFL lockout according to the Associated Press.

Two armed off-duty police officers in uniform joined the Titans director of security, Steve Berk, at the only open side gate to the facility Thursday. The main gate remains chained and locked as it has since the NFL lockout began March 12. A member of the team’s security detail is also stationed at the player’s entrance into the building.

“It’s a little excessive,” right guard Jake Scott, the Titans’ players representative, said of the security presence. “I guess they don’t want us in, and they don’t want what would appear to meet a judge’s orders.

“But there’s not a lot we can do as players except show up and ask and get sent away. We can’t force our way in the building. We’re not going to do that. We’re going to show up, ask and be told no.”
