Tennessee's Justin Coleman posted four tackles and had a pass break-up for the East in the 2015 East-West Shrine Game. Coleman's East team won the game 19-3. 

Heading into the game, Coleman drew attention from The Sporting News as the #2 player to watch in the game: Ten things to watch in the 90th East-West Shrine Game. Here's what the website posted on the Tennessee product: 

The East cornerbacks form one of the most talented units in this game, and Coleman was a standout during the week of practice. 

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times asked East coach Mike Singletary which players impressed him the most. Singletary first mentioned Coleman, who had an impressive interception during coverage drills Wednesday. Coleman measured 5-11, 184 pounds with a solid, thick build. He had four interceptions for the Volunteers in 2014 while played mostly inside.

The week was an excellent test for Coleman. He was forced to match up with receivers in tight man coverage more often than he did for the Vols. Coleman excelled in those drills. He also showcased excellent ball skills during position work.

Witten Headed To 10th Pro Bowl

| No TrackBacks

VFL Jason Witten is set to return to the Pro Bowl for the 10th time in his 12-year career. On Sunday, it was announced that Witten would be a replacement for Denver's Julius Thomas, who pulled out of the game with an injury. 

DallasCowboys.com has the story: Jason Witten Added To Pro Bowl For 10th Time

Witten is now tied for second on the Cowboys' all-time list of Pro Bowl with 10, joining Hall of Famers Mel Renfro and Larry Allen. The trio is behind only Bob Lilly, who leads all players in franchise history with 11 Pro Bowl trips.

After missing the Pro Bowl his rookie season in 2003, Witten made seven straight selections from 2004-2010. After missing out in 2011, Witten has now made it to three straight.

This past season, Witten caught just 64 passes, his fewest single-season total since 2006. He also had just 703 yards, his lowest total since his rookie year of just 347.

But while Witten spent more time in the backfield as a blocker, helping the Cowboys have the second-best rushing attack in the league, he still caught five touchdown passes.

And down the stretch, Witten was even more of a valuable receiver for Romo, catching 29 balls in the last five regular-season games. In the playoffs, he caught five and six balls against Detroit and Green Bay, respectively.

Ironically, Witten was added to the Pro Bowl roster Monday on the same day as former teammate Martellus Bennett, who backed him up the first four years of his career. Bennett caught 90 balls for 916 yards this year.



Tennessee basketball heads to South Carolina for a road test against the Gamecocks tonight at 9 p.m. ET in a game that can be seen on ESPNU

Senior guard Josh Richardson needs just seven points against USC to reach 1,000 for his career. The Volunteers enter the game coming off a victory at Missouri, the Vols' first victory this season in which they scored 60 or fewer.

NFC Championship: Packers vs. Seahawks, 3:05 p.m. (FOX)

Former Vol Tony McDaniel will head into the NFC Championship game this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers in his second season with the Seattle Seahawks. McDaniel is overcoming a shoulder injury and did not practice on Wednesday but participated in practice at the end of the week.

If McDaniel returns to the Super Bowl, it would mean at least one Vol has played in 23 of the last 24 Super Bowls. 

During the regular season, McDaniel racked up 31 tackles and had a safety and pass deflection.
