    Not sure we can judge Adoree based on almost a completely lost year due to injury. Adoree does seem a little injury prone, but if you can get him healthy and back at a reasonable price, he is better than Borders. I’m not sure we are in an either/or situation with Butler/Adoree and pass rush help. I feel like restructures are a better way to get cap space, especially with a guy like Butler.

    Defensive tackle or edge its gotta be. If this season showed us anything we win in the trenches. We need to get better up front. Look what tampa done to kansas ffs. I know we got Simmons at dt but if you 2 quality tackles that takes alot heat off the edge guys.

    Granted kansas had 2 starting tackles out but God dam Mahomes was running for his life and was not the guy we're accustomed to.

    I couldn’t agree more. The Browns won both battles at the line. We have an average OL and a below average DL. Not the straightest path to a championship.

    I completely agree they are different and understand Watt has declined and has a recent injury history. Thats why I think he comes cheap. Incentive type 3 years with some guaranteed and we can get out the last 2 years of he sucks. Spread the money out and it doesn’t cost much this season.

    I just think a 75% of what he used to be Watt helps us in many many ways.

    Make a point. Don’t hide it. You said at his age and I have you an example of a player who played well past Watts current age and was very good for his 2nd team.


    You also said Watt was “ decent “. I don’t know what you mean there either, When? His career? Last season?


    Tell me what your point was. Please. Cool? Ok!

    I am curious to know why you think he would only come to Titans if it was his only choice?

    Well, as low down on the productivity pole as we are, it’s hard to think he would make matters worse, assuming as you say he is cheap enough.

    I think the point is that Reggie White is not a good comparison to Watt.
    Not only was Reggie a complete outlier from almost the entire history of the NFL (a very small handful of pass rushers had success that late in their career) but because he didn't have the injury history, no one can possibly assume that Watt today is going to be anything remotely "Reggie White level".

    For the "decent" part, he'd have to explain that one.
