    5 year deal per Jay Glazer (Twitter).

    He had a nice year for the titans, but I doubt he fits the new scheme. The team really didn't show much interest in re-signing him.

    He wasn't a great defensive player. He was beyond terrible against the run, made boneheaded plays that cost us dearly at times and considering he was pretty much only playing for the sacks, he should have had a few more!

    I really hope this means the Titans don't turn around overpay for Ray Edwards.

    well.. i think he wanted a little too much for his age.... can't really spend that much just in case he tanks...

    but still.... we need to go at it at signing a few players.. sure we got our main man, but it would be nice to have some others on the other side..
     
  6. It didn't make sense to shell out big bucks to a 31 year old pass rusher with one good season on his resume who no longer fit the defensive scheme. But sticking with Washburn is his best chance for the future.

    Good riddance to a huge chunk of our defensive offside penalties. :D

    Babin had a career year as a pass rush specialist with no regard for stopping the run or staying at home on occasion.

    No way Philly let him line up out as wide as we let him in even with Washburn as their line coach.

    Crap player who had a 'statistically' had a great year in terms of sacks. His production was all down to scheme and ultimately those sacks were useless to us.

    We couldn't stop the run and he was a big part of that problem.
