Report: Titans give GM Reinfeldt extension

Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt's had some nice first-round draft picks in his time with Tennessee -- Chris Johnson, who you may have heard of, was a bit of a reach at the time, but has panned out pretty well for Nashville football. Michael Griffin's been superb, Kenny Britt is obviously talented (but troubled) and it's still early for Derrick Morgan.

But Reinfeldt's set to have, potentially, the biggest of his career coming on Thursday, April 28, when the Titans will select eighth overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. But he'll make that pick with plenty of security because, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, the Titans gave him a "multiyear extension."

Wyatt points out that the extension was likely "in the works" during the 2010 season and that it's "believed to last through 2014," though the team wouldn't discuss the precise nature of the reported deal.

Tennessee clearly struggled in 2010, going 6-10, but it's hard not to respect Reinfeldt for keeping the Titans competitive over his tenure despite a nightmarish quarterback situation (Vince Young was drafted the year before he took over) and for navigating an even more awkward coaching change when the rift between Jeff Fisher and Bud Adams grew to an irreconcilable gap.

Adams clearly respects the work Reinfeldt's done, though, because he extended the time with which he'll be working in Tennessee -- how that time pans out may very well be determined by the first decision that Reinfeldt makes under his new deal.

Why??? is anyone tryingto steal Reinfeldt and his crappy picks? He's definitely great at drafting WRs who cannot catch and LBs who cannot cover.
