NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans and the Atlanta Falcons plan to meet about halfway in August for a joint practice at a Georgia high school during training camp.

The Titans announced Thursday they had agreed with the Falcons on the joint practice Aug. 5 to be held in Dalton, Ga., at Coahulla High School. The session will be open and free to the public.

Tennessee coach Mike Munchak noted Thursday that the Titans practiced with the Falcons before. The teams met in Chattanooga for a scrimmage in 1997, the then-Oilers' first year in Tennessee. The Falcons also traveled to Nashville for a couple of days of practice in 2004, and Munchak said he talked with Atlanta coach Mike Smith about practicing together last year.

"Because of the lockout, it was too hard to plan something like this ...," Munchak said. "With the schedule too ..., you can really have a nice organized practice against someone else who's a good football team and really work your first and second groups without worrying about injuries like you do in preseason games."

Dalton is 160 miles from Nashville, and the Titans say they will bus down and back the day of the practice. Munchak said that will offer another bonding chance for the players along with exposure for the Titans near the Tennessee border.

"There's people who like both teams. I think it's a great thing when you can create that atmosphere," Munchak said.
