    Do what the Falcons did... Traded a 7th round pick for Tye Hill... yes I said a 7th! Tye Hill you know the cornerback taken 15th overall (12 behind VY) in the 06 Draft. Tye Hill the 5'10'' 185lb who ran a 4.31 40, a 41 inch vertical, and who when healthy easily posts 50 tackles and 5 ints not to mention a deadly return man.

    My question is whhhy did the Titans not offer like a 6th rounder for Tye? Tye would add some well needed speed in our corners. I mean yesss Finny is fast. Harper is old and slow, Faggins isn't to quick, Cary Williams and Ryan Mouton are decent... Imagine Finny, Harper, Hill, Faggins, Williams, Mouton as our CB depth!!!

    Silly Titans

    I would say it is along the same lines of why no team would trade a 7th round pick for the guy taken 12 spots ahead of Tye Hill, yet his dwindling few faithfuls (unfortunately, Bud, the only one that matters, is one of them) still believe this guy to be the face of a franchise. You can learn a lot about a player in 3-4 years in this league.

    Didn't Hill have a broken neck or back? Is he even guaranteed to be able to play?

    Hill has spent the last two seasons ending up on the injured reserve. No thanks.

    any player traded for a 7th rounder, isn't worth a topic on this site..
