    Brother Billy is either auditioning for other NFL Teams (trade bait) or showing what he can do as a Titan starter. Which is it?

    Based on his performance of late... I would say not much of either.

  5. Probably both/either but the way he's been playing it might turn into watching NFL on DirectTV.

    if they are truley committed into bringing Steve back, then this is trade bait.

    We probably can't trade him. We either keep him and give him a $4.5M in bonuses or we cut him. We'll cut him, IMHO.

    Here's a quote from a recent Tennessean article:
    Assuming the option bonus comes due on March 1 (which is likely), we wouldn't be able to trade him before then. If we don't sign him to the bonus then he'll be a free agent (presumably). If we do, then he'll have a no-trade clause.

    If they worked a deal to a team where he felt like he could start, I think Volek would approve it. Actually, I think there's a fair chance they'll just keep him unless they plan on drafting a quarterback early in the draft.

    Volek hasn't set the world on fire this season, but there are some really sketchy quarterbacks starting in this league right now. I think you could make a case that he's better than some of them.
