    I would like to believe that the Titans know more than I do, but the track record says otherwise. We take Paul Williams with a 3rd round pick. Meanwhile, Darrel Jackson, a player that the Titans were supposedly a contender for, is had for a 4th rounder. Michael Turner, a much more proven player than Chris Henry with just as much upside, probably could have been had for little more than the 2nd rounder we used to get him. Then there is our inability to keep key players (Bennett and Henry, whoops). I am the first to say that I don't know how these players will turn out and generally I always believe that the GM has done his research so I'm even more excited when a no namer is picked, but this GM has given me reason to assume otherwise.

    Chargers wanted a first in next years draft for him, so no he couldn't have.

    A first in next year's draft qualifies as little more than our 2nd rounder. Besides, from what I could gather, the Chargers have never disclosed what they were looking for. Where did you hear that?

    This thing looks like the Chargers upped the ante late.

    Though I'm hoping the Titans pick of Griffin wasn't influenced by the Chargers (who liked him), I thought that might be case at one point yesterday.

    I was thinking Meachem might drop to #30 and then the Titans and Chargers would swap picks along with the Titans giving up a third or fourth-rounder for Turner.

    The Chargers may have wanted a second-rounder in '08 instead of the third in '07. I hope the details come out in time. I can't believe they'd ask for a first-rounder.
  6. yea im in agreement TJ, asking for a first rounder for a backup RB is out of the question

    I couldn't imagine we did it without a deal 100% in place.

    1) Darrell Jackson at this point isn't an elite receiver, and was already dealt in a deal with 49ers earlier in the day.

    2) San Diego wanted at least a 1st round for Turner, per Fisher and Reinfeldt. AT LEAST. End of story, he's not worth it.
