George may finish his career in Tennessee

3/11/2005 - Tennessee Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Running back Eddie George, who had the
worst season of his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2004, could
return to the Tennessee Titans, his original team.

George, the Titans' all-time leading rusher, and Titans coach
Jeff Fisher said they are interested in pursuing George's return.
George spent the first eight years of his career with
Houston/Tennessee.

George signed with Dallas last year but wasn't re-signed by the
Cowboys after rushing for a career-low 432 yards and four
touchdowns.

"I am not ready to put a percentage on it right now, but there
is a chance," Fisher said. "I always thought Eddie should finish
his career here, but there are a lot of things we have to work
through."

The Titans have recently lost star players Derrick Mason, Samari
Rolle and Kevin Carter as they dealt with salary cap restrictions.

If George, 31, returns to Tennessee it would be as a backup to
third-year pro Chris Brown.

"I definitely have an interest in coming back. I never had any
ill feelings toward the organization," George said.
