The Tennessee Titans (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/teams/titans)' 11-year relationship with quarterback Steve McNair (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/3114) was crumbling Tuesday, perhaps beyond repair.
The Titans said they can't afford his $23.46 million hit under the salary cap a day after barring their winningest quarterback from working out at the team's training center.

Agent Bus Cook said that means they have three options: "It's either rework the deal to something that makes sense for us, trade him or cut him."
A deal may not be easy, either.

"You tell the guy who's the mainstay of the organization, the leader, to get out, that he's not wanted, that's pretty rough. I don't know what Steve will do or won't do. I imagine he would have a hard time going back over there," Cook said.
