    I remember draft pundits saying Titans could draft Tunsil and move Lewan to RT.

    Never did I hear anyone mentioned Conklin playing LT.

    Pay Conk big money, Draft an edge early, resign Correa

    Or

    Pay a FA Edge big money, draft an OT early, resign Kelly

    I remember it like this too.

    Lewan came out and said something along the lines of "Im the Titans LT. Period"

    And then we obviously traded down and then back up to get Conk

    We spent a ton of draft capital on Conk. Hate to only got a few years out of him.

    Considering the trades we made, it wasnt like we were just giving up picks. We still came out ahead IMO.

    While you're not wrong, it's still opportunity cost. And with how bad the OL was for so long, call me crazy for not getting excited about breaking last years group up after really starting to gel.

    I wish we could keep him as well, but the rumor is Jets have 20mil a year available for him. 4 year 80mil is overpaying and we are already overpaying Lewan.

    If that's the case, goodbye. I'd like to keep him, but not for $20M.

    Lewan makes 16m/yr as the highest paid tackle in the league. It would be absurd to pay Conklin 20m.
