    I have a feeling he'll take the pay cut.

    Would expect us to go safety now within the first 3 rounds, and probably pick up a cheap vet in FA.

    Rumor has it that Byard has asked for his release...

    I would trade him over cutting him... he certainly still has value and his 13mil cap hit isn't that much for another team to swallow.

    I would only look to trade him if it helped us land a solid WR

    KB is still just 29 and playing at a high level. The Titans aren't just going to let him go for nothing just because he asked to be released. Maybe find a trade partner to a team he approves as a courtesy, but there are too many holes on this team to add another without a way to fill it.

    I remember when KB came out, Mike Tomlin saying he wished he had drafted him before the Titans picked him. I'd be on the phone with PITT seeing what they'd give us for him.

    If we do move on from him, it will definitely feel different. He's one of those faces of the franchise that will be hard to replace, not only for his play on the field, but his leadership and his work in the community.

    Sorry but if KB is wanting released something is toxic in the building. We're talking about a guy who came to us, uninvited to the draft and picked up. Set home there and all the community work. Besides he's the only 1 I see on my TV screen making a tackle on a pass play

    If Byard goes I'm down another ****ing Jersey.

    He probably is just like a lot of people, hates change. In his case he prolly mad Ran isn't sucking up to him.

    I can’t believe the Titans thought a player in today’s NFL would take a pay cut. LOL. Do they honestly not realize that’s 100% what it’s all about now? That’s why I always laugh at these fans being attached to the players. They don’t give two sh*it’s about you or the team but you waste time worrying about them and defending them.

    Players take pay cuts to stay on their team all the time.

    Definitely not “all the time” and only if they know they don’t have options anywhere else for the same $. They say it’s “just a business” all the time. Don’t be so naive.
