Mike Vrabel, Titans players volunteer on behalf of Nashville tornado victims
Mike Vrabel backed up some strong talk about coming to the aid of those displaced or impacted by the tornado that tore through the Nashville area earlier this week by doing some volunteer work of his own.
Even better, the Tennessee Titans head coach brought some players and team staff along to help out.
The Metro Nashville Police Department shared images of the Titans contingent — who arrived on three buses — lend a hand in the relief efforts.

The Titans similarly shared images and video of the team’s efforts to assist those whose lives have been devastated by the violent tornado.

Vrabel made an appearance earlier Friday on NFL Network, during which he touted how the Titans organization has already donated $1 million to relief efforts.

Also during the interview, Vrabel challenged people to do more to help those impacted by Tuesday’s tornado and severe storm system that left 24 dead, while also calling some out for simply behaving like gawkers amid all the devastation.
“They can get out and start to clean up instead of taking pictures like I see people doing,” Vrabel said. “Put your phones down and pick up branches.”
