    SUMMARY: Before you demand a trade to another team make sure there is a team out there who would actually want your services. That is the kind of sage advice Chris Brown and his agent, Wynn Silbermann, would have been wise to follow before they demanded a trade from the Tennessee Titans. For the life of me, I cannot think of any other NFL team that would be kind enough to put Brown atop their depth chart the way the Titans were.

    There was never a question of whether he would stay. It would be a huge outside shot for him to leave. All that happened was that Brown's agent "requested" that he be traded. The titans don't really have any interest in trading him, so unless someone comes along with a major deal, it's not going to happen. At least he's making sure to say today that he'll be here to work no matter what.

    Brown is just doing good business. He realizes he has to "bust it" this contract year for a good contract at year's end. If he gets injured doing it- he is screwed. He just wants some job security if it is out there. I take no insult. He's never been a distraction to the team and I doubt he ever will be.

    a little harsh obviously someones bitter over the fact hes asked for a trade but honestly i dont think anyone really expects the Titans to trade him...theres no reason....hopefully he can have a big year with the Titans and get resigned next season...i dont feel 100% comfortable handing over the job to lendale white just yet...

    There is some truth to it, but again, his value will not be maximized here. No matter how well he plays his replacement is on the sideline waiting. One glimmer of hope for White and Brown is out of a job. But not only that, you'd have to be a fool to think he will score TD's here. White is almost guranteed to be the finisher. He's in a three back rotation in Tenn. Fisher proved he would split carries last year. It will happen this year too. Brown may not be able to find a job elsewhere, let's face it, but there's no job for him here either. He can drown here over the course of a year or two and watch as his career toilets out, or he can try to steal a starting job somewhere else. His career is on the borderline of "over." And he can sense it. It's a good career and business move to try and get traded regardless of the market value.
