    Most disappointing part of the draft was finding this out. And that says a lot.

    SD most likely wasn't looking to trade him at all...

    Smart move by them. LT goes down, you can kiss away the season. Turner isn't only insurance, he keeps LT fresh.

    I think they never intended to part with him unless someone was willing to give up a one.

    i think teams (jets or pack) were willing to give up a 2008 #1...but not a 2007...

    Fisher said that during the draft SD actually upped the ante and wanted more than an 08 first rounder for Turner. The Titans never appeared willing to pay even the first rounder, and rightfully so in my opinion. SD is well enough stocked with players that they don't have to sweat over whether they get a draft pick for Turner or not. The added security of having him on the roster for a Super Bowl run far out-weighs fears of him getting away next year with no compensation. I'm with you TJ. Smith is playing it smart. He was either going to rip some team a new one or hang onto Turner. He wins either way.

    We could've at least swapped this years 1st and done the same next year for turner. We would've still been able to get Griffin if we really wanted him.

    There was alot of talk that SD wanted Griff, so it's pretty conceivable that if we switched with SD, Griff would have been off the board. If not SD, I'm sure New England would have taken him. I read somewhere that Griff was #1 on their board.

    this is actually better, if we traded for turner, he would most likely play for us 1 year, have an outstanding season, then move on to denver or someplace, now after his contract is up in San Diego we can sign him, michael turner will be a Titan in 08, count on it.

    Or a Packer or whatever team ends up losing their back to injury etc.
