    The article by Dan Pompei is behind a paywall, but Big Jeff told reporters that the Titans admitted that they don't know how they're going to afford his new contract. Get to know the Titans' Jeffery Simmons, the best defensive tackle this side of Aaron Donald

    This seems to be more of a cash flow problem rather than a salary cap one, as Amy Adams Strunk has problems dishing out the high guaranteed salaries used to mitigate the salary cap. They can afford a 2 billion dollar stadium though.

    After the AJ debacle, what would fan support seriously look like if they trade Jeff or let him walk?

    She's probably getting taxpayer money to help with the stadium


    If all this is true she needs to sell. No excuse not to have the cash. The Adams' have owned the team over 60 years. They shouldn't have much, if any debt

    What a dysfunctional organization

    Can't draft very well, when we do get a great player, we let them walk or can't afford to keep them...JRob too busy getting woodies over PS, exTexans and exPats guys to round out the bottom of the roster

    Good thing we're in the AFC South and we can enjoy fools gold every year on being Division Champions and 'a playoff team".

    if she can't afford him because of cash flow how can she afford anyone

    granted Henry is deserving, but we gave him millions in bonus before the season even started - after he signed a new contract - why? that was some of the dumbest **** i've ever seen

    If true this sucks and the writing is on the wall. Best they can do is sell up now while the value is high with the playoff runs etc.

    I mean cutting Lewan, Tanny and Woods saves over 40 mil on the cap next year pre June. If we can't keep our best players due to financials we'll never get a superbowl. Will be pissed if Big Jeff walks because we can't pay him.

    Big Jeff is already under contract next season. Extending him is not something we need to do now at all. We waited till Landry was about to be a FA and could do the same with Simmons. The only reason we traded AJ was he was heading into a contract year and clearly had no intention of resigning with us after. Better to get a 1st and a 3rd than nothing. Big Jeff knows we want him here and he wants to play here.

    Isn't he a 1st round pick with a 5th year option?

    there would be none... not signinig 98 means you have no desire to win

    Everyone that wants to win would walk... Vrable and his loyalists

    would be left with the robinsons who are loyal to organization

    B11 stated he wanted to be traded - that 100% gets you traded/released with Robinson
