NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee general manager Jon Robinson has a very personal stake in keeping the Titans safe during the coronavirus pandemic. He hopes people around the NFL understand he has tried to do everything the right way.

His oldest daughter, Taylor, has several auto-immune issues, including Type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

“We try to do everything we can to protect her and keep her safe because exposing her to this, it would be really, really serious for her,” Robinson said Monday.

Robinson noted that’s why the Titans worked hard to follow all protocols to protect everyone connected with the franchise. Still, the Titans wound up with the NFL’s first COVID-19 outbreak, with a total of 24 players and personnel testing positive since Sept. 24.

No, the Titans (3-0) have not heard from the NFL or the players union on any punishment, and Robinson said whether discipline is warranted is not for him to decide. He has heard some of the calls for heavy punishment for a team that has had two games rescheduled because of the outbreak.


“We’ve been extremely transparent with both groups with our situation as they try to piece things together,” Robinson said of the NFL and the NFL Players Association. “So that we can put some things in place that this doesn’t happen again.”

Asked if this outbreak was preventable, Robinson said he’s wracked his brain trying to figure out what happened. Learning more details about the incubation period also has been “eye opening.”

“All it takes is as a small window of opportunity, it seems, for this thing to find its way in and have an impact,” Robinson said.

Sports fans across the country are showing more willingness to take a financial interest in the outcome of games, and in 18 states that allow sports betting, they may not even have to leave their couch to do it.

In two years since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, the gaming industry has seen a widespread trend of casino operators partnering with tech companies that offer online and mobile betting platforms.

Penn National Gaming (PENN) acquired a 36 percent share in Barstool Sports, a leading digital sports media company, joining Boyd Gaming (BYD), MGM Resorts (MGM), Caesars Entertainment (CZR) and others going after the estimated $40 billion sports betting business.

Penn paid about $163 million in cash and convertible preferred stock to become Barstool’s exclusive gaming partner for up to 40 years. The company also gained the right to use Barstool’s brand for all of Penn’s online and retail sports betting and internet casino games.

“The partnerships you see developing between operators, teams, leagues and the media are a natural evolution of how sports betting is rolling out throughout the United States,” said Brendan Bussmann, partner and director of government affairs for Las Vegas-based Global Market Advisors.

Going forward, wagering will become part of sports culture, he added. Even before the repeal of PASPA, sports fans and commentators talked about point spreads and money lines in their normal conversations.

Jay Snowden, president and CEO of Penn National, said the partnership with Barstool Sports reflects the company’s strategy to evolve from a regional gaming operator with 41 properties in 19 states to a “best-in-class omnichannel provider of retail and online gaming and sports betting entertainment.”

Tennessee Titans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was fined $35,000 on Saturday following two unnecessary roughing penalties against the Minnesota Vikings during a Week 3 victory, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero:

It’s the second-highest fine in Clowney’s career. The veteran was hit with a $40,110 penalty for a roughing-the-passer call against then-Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in December 2018. 

It’s also the eighth time in Clowney’s seven-year career the defensive end has received a fine from the league. Saturday’s penalty brings his total up to $151,677 forfeited, according to Spotrac.

The 2014 No. 1 overall draft pick signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the Titans this offseason after ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler previously reported he was setting his price mark at $17 million yearly. So far it hasn’t exactly into much success for the Tennessee defense despite a 3-0 start. The unit ranks as the fourth-worst in football, averaging 422.3 yards allowed and 24.7 points allowed per game. 

One of Clowney’s penalties against the Vikings last week was a block in the back call that erased a defensive touchdown for the Titans. 

Through three games, Clowney has recorded just seven total tackles and one pass deflection. He’ll need to step his game up—and avoid costly penalties—as the Tennessee defense continues to develop.
