“My absence had nothing to do with a holdout yet a personal matter that Titan officials were aware of. I am grateful for being a Titan. I am also thankful for my current contract and direction of team. Its obvious media had no idea of why my absence took place.
“I have spoken with coaches and teammates and will resume all things asked. Sad to see media made this out to be about money when I'm happy. With all that has been given so forgive me Nashville for media making it seem that way. Media gets paid to report never knowing but one side of a story. My personal issues needed attention and I will be out there playing ball. Look forward to answering questions Tom at practice.”
