    Someone will offer Jones more money than he would get to be our 9th lineman and a rotational spot at DT if he doesn't stay with Seattle.

    If we are going to bring back an ex-Titan to spell Wimbley I would prefer William Hayes.

    So you want to pay $4-5M a year for a guy who doesn't start? Hayes had 7 sacks last year you think you can get him on the cheap? Hayes had 7 sacks in 4 seasons for us and now you want to pay up for him because he had one 7 sack year with somebody else?

    And what makes Jason Jones such an expensive property? He doesn't fit the schemes of half the teams in the league and has had 3 sacks a year for the last 3. I think he could be had for 2-2.5X the vet minimum.

    Every titan fan knows that Jason Jones was a better player here than William Hayes. Hayes will get 7 sack money from a team and play like a bum.

    For those of you who need help reading between the lines. A DT tandom of Klug and Jones means we have little hope of stopping even a below average run game.

    I agree with you on the $$, but Jones over Hayes for me. Hayes has 1 move and thats it.

    I always like JJ.. always wished he would switch to DE. I thought he just couldn't take the inside beating consistency. However, DE just didn't work for him. Now people ask for Klug to play DE, it's the same thing. JJ used his athleticism and speed to beat guards and get to the QB and make plays, he didn't have that explosive step that most DEs need. If he had better durability he'd be a darn good DT, Henry Melton level.. just always hurt.

    With that said, we should of kept him and used a better rotation.

    I'd like to add Glenn Dorsey to our middle in FA. We have to assume Star will not fall to us in the Draft. Dorsey has played out of position the last few years at KC as a 3-4 end. He is a 4-3 DT, and he will not be expensive because he has underperformed his 1st round status. Start him with Casey, and I think he could re-kindle some of that dominance he showed in college.

    Hmm, that might work.

    The Titans almost never go after the big fish free agents, and not having a top 5 pick could leave us without a good DT to pair with Casey, Dorsey might be the answer.

    He's got the build we seem to like in a DT. 6'1" 300lbs, dudes only 27 years old. But when I look at his numbers I wonder WTF happened to this guy...?

    I haven't seen him play at all as a pro, IDK how good/bad he is now. But seems like a solid idea on paper.

    Good article from PFF regarding those stats.

    Dorsey was an absolute zero as a pass rusher. He is a similar player to Marks. I was thinking of a guy who could rush the passer a little.
