Discussion in 'Tennessee Titans and NFL Talk' started by Big Time Titan, Feb 8, 2010.
Peppers is too expensive, I say we just get a younger, solid DE like Ray Edwards.
Peppers is a pipe dream and way too expensive. When a 30 year old player starts talking about wanting to play in an entirely new system i would balk. We are talking about AH type money here.
In 2007 the Patriots had an almost ideal team save for one position WR. They went whole hog and got welcher and moss and almost had a perfect season.
For us CB is the need position and Robinson is the guy we must have. Even signing a good backup like marlin jackson as well. We must take care of that position!
I say we sign Robinson and Brackett and keep Amano, tulloch and Brown with long term deals. Draft another D-lineman in rd 3 or 4. If the price is reasonable sign KVB but only for a 2 year deal.
William Hayes and Jason Jones might be ready to step up and play great ball for us and i think Marks will be a solid guy.
Would be nice to have a solid backup safety as well.
I would rather pay up for an o-line upgrade at guard than pay huge money for peppers. The jets and vikings did very well with their signings of Faneca and Hutchinson and if we think we can get better at that position i say go for it.
FYI the titans can free up $9.5M in cap space this year by cutting Thornton and Hope. $4M by just releasing thornton.
While getting rid of Hope would be a risky move we could replace him by drafting a guy like Earl thomas in rd 1 or going after one of several quality restricted free agents like Roman harper, Antoine bethea or Nick collins any who would secure that position for the long term.
I wouldnt get rid of Hope, that just seems like way too risky of a move....even if you could replace him...why replace him with someone that will just be on the same level as him?
A secondary of Griffin, Hope, Finny, and *insert new CB, hopefully Robinson* would be great if we sure up holes in the front seven.
Id love to see Johnson or Jackson as our LB's, both are guys I wish the Titans had....and both of them need to get out of the dismal teams they play for. Either one could flourish in this system.
We need atleast one true playmaker on the D-Line....Peppers is a dream, but aint gonna happen. I like Ray Edwards if the price is right.
Kept hearing people talk about Seymour....I could have sworn he signed an extension with the Raiders right after he was traded???
Karlos Dansby, Aaron Kampman, do we take a look at them. Maybe even Joey Porter. Or do we wait and see on Keith and bring back KVB?
There is no cap.
Just cut them next year.
I think this makes more sense.
