    Not signed, but the rookie contract scale is pretty much set, except some offset language and other minor details.

    He was also playing a lot of nose tackle or 1 technique in college.

    So many people say it's a bad thing to draft a player with injuries. Unless you think you are close to being in contention (and the Titans are not quite there), then this move isn't hurtful. I recall the Jags doing the same thing a few years ago and when all their pieces were finally on the field healthy they rolled out a top 5 defense.

    My point is no one knows how this plays out next year, but personally I like the pick. Been way to long sense this team had a All Pro stud in the middle. I like this move.

    Just like I said in the hunt thread, dont really care about his off the field transgressions provided it does t prevent him from playing on the field and helping win the SB.
    This particular incident seems pretty old on Simmons so I’m definitely not worried but I sure as hell would be cheering and supporting Bosa if he magically fell to the Titans.

    I did a little more digging and looks like he did a good amount of charity work in college and remained a leader on the field. Love a good redemption story so I hope he does turn out to be great for us and keeps doing good work off the field.

    Getting a second chance is one thing... taking advantage of the opportunity is another.

    He seems to have taken advantage.

    The anger is understandable but sometimes people just screw up and do stupid things.

    I hope the kid kills it and keeps his nose clean
