    I was wondering," does anyone know what our plans are for Tank?" He should be better now that he is 2 years away from that knee injury.

    Yea, he hasn't visited anyone and no one has expressed interest in him yet.

    With Thompson and Hope under contract I'm not sure Tank is in their plans.

    I'm surprised at how willing the Titans seem to be at letting Tank go. After all he played the best of all the ACL guys and he had the least amount of rehab time. I still think Tank can be a very good player, but I think what is happening is under Schwartz, we are going predominantly to a 2deep zone pu$$y defense and Tank is not a Zone Safety.

    I don't know. Since I joined this forum, all I have ever heard anyone say about the guy is how bad he sucks. I dunno. He's done nothing remarkable. I was wondering when someone would raise this topic, in light of the Hope signing...

    Last year Tank didn't play the whole season due to an ACL injury...Before he was forced to end his season he had 52 Tackles, and 1 Interception..He came back in 2005 with 78 Tackles and 1 Interception...So with those kinds of stats and nothing stellar about him I don't see why he would a be a major player to sign in free agency..My guess is that if no one jumps at the chance to sign him then he will be back in Tennessee with less playing time or put on the trading block...

    To be fair they all sucked. I personally was a little surprised they let Tank walk and paid Lamont to stay. To me Tank showed most progression throughout the season and you had to factor in his injury. Lamonth was injuryfree and didn't get better as the season wore on.

    plus he was making alot more than Tank, I was really surprised as well. It just goes to show what direction this defense under Schwartz is going.

    Tank is obviously not coming back. Both starting safety jobs are taken.
