NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- New Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Harold Landry said he doesn't have a nickname, but that might change after Vince Young butchered his name while announcing the team's pick Friday.
"Titan Up. Titans Up, baby. With the 41st pick in the 2018 draft, the Tennessee Titans select Honor, Honor Landry," Young said.
The problem is that the former Boston College edge rusher that the Titans coveted enough to trade up for in the second round is named "Harold."
Each NFL team selected a "franchise legend" to announce its second-round pick. Young was the Titans' rep in Arlington, Texas.
Young realized his mistake and apologized to Landry via Twitter. Landry in turn, tweeted to Young that it was no big deal.
All good dog! I'm a damn Tennessee Titan, LETS GET ITT!!! https://t.co/mqET1vhFWU— Harold Landry III (@HaroldLandry) April 28, 2018
It's all good, VY! We still love you. Can't wait to get Landry in the building. #TitanUp— Tennessee Titans (@Titans) April 28, 2018
Landry was on the phone, consumed with being selected by the Titans when Young messed up his name.
Titans veterans have an easy target if they want to coin a nickname for Landry now.
