Fisher's son spreads Montana news
By Paul Kuharsky
Jeff Fisher didn’t love the line of questioning, but Marc Mariani had given him up.
The seventh-round receiver said it wasn't a Titans' scout or coach who notified him he'd been drafted by Tennessee, but Brandon Fisher, Jeff’s son, who he played with at Montana.
The Titans brought in safety and returner Tuff Harris as an undrafted free agent from Montana in 2008 and he played a bit that season.
Asked if we might see more of an Auburn presence as his daughter matriculates there, Fisher passed on the question.
Mariani will be in the mix along with second-round receiver Damian Williams and fourth-round cornerback Alterraun Verner.
“I’m not going to loan him a car,” Fisher said of his son’s pal, who he said the Titans scouts liked.
One Titans sidenote: GM Mike Reinfeldt said while a lot of good defenders remained available, “the offense got wiped out.” Still, the Titans headed into undrafted free agency seeking a running back and an interior offensive lineman.
