Jeff Fisher admitted he got Vince Young’s letter last year, but never responded.
The former Titans coach said he wasn’t sure if Young’s letter — which was an apology for his part in their tense relationship — was actually from him, since Fisher’s name was spelled wrong.
According to Fisher — not Fischer — he got a letter with an University of Texas letterhead, where Young was working.
“Yes, I got a letter from Vince,” Fisher told PaulKuharsky.com. “And I didn’t respond. My name was spelled wrong on the letter, the letter came from the University of Texas, and I had no way of knowing if it was (really) from him. It came from the athletic department. But my name was spelled incorrectly.
Fiers felt relieved after struggling at the end of last season with the Houston Astros and during spring training with the Tigers.
“It was a big start with the way I ended last year,” he said. “The last four or five starts I wasn’t the pitcher I am. I got to a place I couldn’t get out of. It is awesome as a confidence booster for me and also for this team.”
Brought up from Triple-A Charlotte prior to Sunday’s game, Bruce Rondon took a wrong route — before the game. He went to the visitor’s locker room and came across Cabrera, a former Tigers teammate.
“This morning I wrongly went to their clubhouse,” Rondon said through a translator. “Miguel said, `Hey, loco, what are you doing here?”
“When you make a statement like everyone is available, you’re seeing what you can get for players and how that fits in to what you’re doing when you’re rebuilding,” he said.
Vigneault won 226 games with the Rangers, the third most by a head coach in the team’s history. He was hired on a five-year, $10 million contract with the Rangers on June 21, 2013, and signed a two-year extension in January 2017.
He was the first coach to be fired in the NHL this season.
Boston said his agent has spoken to the Chargers about re-signing, but the two sides have reached an impasse because “they think I’m more of a strong safety-type of player.” Value at that position is generally lesser than at free safety because playing the latter requires better range, especially in pass coverage.
One NFL team executive told Sporting News the overall lack of top-end speed among free-agent safeties is one of the contributing factors to a repressed market.
“It’s a marginal group,” the executive said. “You really don’t have one cover safety in the group. You have some decent box types like Vaccaro and Reid, but it’s primarily backup types left.”
