    ESPN.com is reporting:

    "Even with Chris Brown, Travis Henry and draft pick LenDale White on board, don't be surprised if the Titans add another running back in the next two months. The team would like a third-down, scatback type who can catch passes and handle blitz pickup."

    WTF. We draft LenDale using a 2nd rounder, we use the 3rd on Travis Henry and Chris Brown. We also have Jarret Payton, Damien Nash and Quinton Ganther.

    So basically: a 3rd rounder, a 3rd rounder, a 2nd rounder, undrafted FA, a 5th rounder and a 7th rounder and WE STILL want to bring a guy in? Who the **** is on the market worth having?

    I don't buy it. First of all, I think Brown can handle that role (which is what he did at the end of the Eddie George era) with White being the #1 back. Also, that souldn't like Ganther's profile, though he may not be an NFL-capable back.

    Secondly, we already have a ton of RBs. I can't see carrying more than 3 RBs and 1 FB. I guess they could go with 1 less TE and 1 more FBack type.

    Plus, it's not as if there is a limitless supply of those types of guys just hanging around the free agent list waiting to be scooped up. Where is this mystery RB coming from?

  6. if we get another rb im gonna be so mad, because we wasted another pick in the 7th on one, which i know its unlikely to get a good player from the 7th but look at reynaldo

  7. Does the front office really think we need more RBs?

    It's ESPN reporting and no quotes from anyone within the Titan organisations.

  9. well espn is a good source probably best, other than a statement from the titans themselves but they are missing hard proof in this

    All sources have there misses and misques. ESPN has been known to throw stuff out there just to get a reaction. So like everyone said don't read to much into it.
