Titans put shame badges on their players at practice

While one team in the AFC South makes their players run laps, the other makes them wear shame badges.

The Houston Texans are not the only ridiculous team in the AFC South it seems, as the Tennessee Titans have one-upped their lap running and decided to go for publicly shaming players who aren't performing with a "JAG" (just a guy) name plate on the bag of their practice jersey.

"Jeff, he has no remorse for me. He holds me to the highest standard, so he asked them to put it on my jersey. He told (equipment manager) Matt (Thornton). I've had it for two days now," Hunter told reporters at Titans practice.

Now ... maybe it's just me, but it seems like a bit of amateur hour from two of the AFC South teams in how they're running training camp. One makes their players take laps and the other makes it's players wear a shame badge. I can't really think of a time, especially in professional sports, either have really worked out well.
