    I think it depends on the contract. Something with an option, as suggested, with some incentives that could turn long-term if he performs. I'm for giving him one more year. He was improving down the stretch.

    We need better players, not cheaper players.

    We need more veteran players, resigning Tank allows us to have 1 more veteran on defense

    I partially agree with you #1TitansFan. I do think we need more veteran players who can play at a high level. We presently have a lot of veteran players who don't.

    And he has been one that doesn't. Tank seems like a good guy and all but if we can upgrade to somebody that has been more consistant and had better numbers I'm all for that. That being said, Tank has had a year to recover from the ACL and he did seem to play a little better toward the end of the season, so, they may decide to keep him. After it's all said and done I'd be surprised if Tank is with us next year.

    Many players have learned from the two different paths of Eddie George and Jerome Bettis. What they have learned is that sometimes it pays to take less money to stay with a team you know and not test the free agent market.

    Floyd has faith in Tank and recognizes that he is a smart player, he knows the system and he has potential. It is wiser to keep a guy that you know has the potential to make plays than to spend a large amount of money on a new free agent who you hope to make a difference. Remember, the Titans have a horrible record when it comes to signing free agents.

    Tank wants to stay in Tennessee. He knows the team, he knows the system, he has made lots of close friends on the team and in the city and he enjoys Nashville. Besides, it's best to stay where you started and at least go into free agency with a strong season behind you.

    tank should stay because he is fairly young and not bad. Especialy when he keeps improving.

    would just make him another to use the Titans to heal up and get the $$$

    If he don't want to stay the he should say so, and for cryin' out loud somebody remove that RB from his chest!
