    QB vs. Mascot

    NFL notes: Ex-Saints QB sues Titans for mascot ending his season

    The Associated Press
    NASHVILLE Ex-Saints quarterback Adrian McPherson is suing the Tennessee Titans because their mascot hit him with a golf cart before the second half of an August exhibition.
    McPherson filed his civil lawsuit Friday in Davidson County Circuit Court and also is seeking $5 million in compensatory damages for the Titans' negligence and $15 million in punitive damages. A team spokesman said Monday afternoon the Titans were aware of the lawsuit but had no further comment.

    The quarterback was on the field Aug. 12 warming up when T-Rac, the Titans' mascot played by director of mascot operations Pete Nelson, hit him with a golf cart while throwing items into the stand.

    McPherson missed the rest of the game with a deep bruise in his right knee, and the Saints cut him on Sept. 2.

    He was signed by the Austin Wranglers of the Arena Football League in November.

    The NFL did not sanction the Titans for the incident but reminded all teams that mascots must stay outside of a six-foot boundary around their fields.

    "Director of mascot operations" -- that's the gig I need.

    No kidding. I wouldn't even mind being the Assistant Director, or Entertainment Leader of Mascot Operations. The ELMO, if you will.
