Also offered a lot to Donte Stallworth, but he chose to go to NE for less money.
ESPN showed Mayok's mock draft on last night, and had the Titans taking Meachem at #19. The more I ponder it, the more I believe we will take a WR early. The draft is heavy in defensive players, and we might end up with a decent DE in the next round.
As far as this Turner deal, I just don't get it. We spent a high #2 to get White, and he hasn't even had a chance to start and prove himself. Seems they are already writing him off if they are so anxious to get Turner. I felt with Hall back there, and Brown in relief, we would be OK at running back, and we could devote more to fixing the defense this year.
I'm okay either way. Would I like to have Turner? Heck yeah, I think he's the real deal. But, if we don't get him (which i seriously don't think we will), we MUST sign CB and use him and LW as RBBC. I think those two together will be a very dangerous pair. Then again, Turner and White makes an even more dangerous pair. Who knows what will happen, but I think when it comes down to it, MR will fold and Turner will be a packer.
bigtitan, correct me if im wrong, but if the Bills TRADE there first rounder to san diego, for MT, then they wont be able to draft patrick willis or Alan branch...
I think this is what's actually going on. The Titans offerred a swap of firsts and a 4th. That didn't work so they offerred a swap of 1sts and a 3rd. That was probably fine until Green Bay offerred a 1st rounder for next year, which may have thrown off our deal. The problem is that GB hasn't reached an agreement with Turner, so this thing is still in the air. We may have even offerred a swap of 1sts and our second this year to try and get it done. We'll see how it comes out, but I could see that as a way it went down.
He isn't worth it for that much.
Teams are willing to draft an unproven RB with their first round pick. Turner is much more proven and can be had for (assuming the Packers) what they hope is a late first-round pick.
Also, don't discount that this "story" wasn't leaked to get a bit more out of the Titans (such as swapping first-round picks and a fourth-round pick conditional to a third if Turner breaks 1,000 yards).
Turner is no more proven as a starter then a drafted back with a first round pick.
giving up a 1st (or swapping) and 2nd next year. Turner is not worth it.
Turner = Green Bay Packers
He looked pretty proven last season against the Titans.
