    This is the Titans best chance at another Vanden Bosch type signing. He may not come in as cheap, but his upside is tremendous if he's healthy and given a chance. The advantage of Plummer over Law would be dollars and longevity. Granted, Law is more established but he's older and would cost a lot more....

    Titans got lucky with KVB. Chances of that happening again are slim.

    Actually Plummer and Woolfolk have some similarities.

    Good size for a CB, 6' 200 pounds, Exceptional athlete .......Explosive out of his breaks...Has quick feet, superb balance and loose hips...Does a great job of getting his head around playing the deep ball...Attacks aggressively and shows a powerful spring into his hits...Very capable covering in the zone, firing low out of his backpedal...Strong in run force, keeping well-balanced in his attack while positioning properly before striking... 4.43 in the 40-yard dash...late first round pick....never lived up to the hype.....always hurt.....a huge disappointment

    Actually, that is inaccurate.

    Woolfolk hasn't even played for a full season in his 3 year career (as a backup or a starter).

    Plummer was good-solid for his first 4 years in the league. Maybe he never played up to 1st rd pick status except for one year, but Woolfolk has NEVER played that well nor close to it.

    And BTW, Woolfolk is close to 6'2".

    The downside is, Plummer isn't youn either and coming off 2 years of injuries is not good. If that translates to vet min with incentives...go for it.

    I have a feeling Ty Law will still be around in a month or 2 unless his contract depends drop. He is a good candidate to get hurt at his age. Still, his 10 INT's would be a HUGE addition to this team...but can he cover Harrison or Wayne one on one?

  8. Hey Gut, nobody can cover Harrison one on one, not even Champ Bailey. Nobody can cover Torre Holt one on one. There are other ways, such as containment and bash them. You will never completely shut down certain receivers, i.e. Big Mouth - I mean Terrell Owens, Hines Ward, Marvin Harrison, Torre Holt, Derrick Mason, Steve Smith, Rod Smith, Randy Moss (when healthy). All you can do is try to limit what they do, contain.... Sort of how the Seattle Seahawks did to Steve Smith... Contain within an area and over play in the endzone, then pressure the QBs.
