    There are always more teams interested, but not at a salary of 8-10mil. So they come into play if he's willing to do something like take a fully guaranteed $6mil with incentives and play out of position (IMO) - then he'd have more suitors. Right now I think it comes down to is he willing to play in Tennessee for 8-10mil a year for a 4-6 yr contract and how fast can the Titans structure it and get it in front of him. The longer it goes on, the less chance the titans have imo.

    Honestly I don't think he's worth $10mil but I'd take him at that price. Like someone else said, this is an all-in year for coaching staff, Locker and other key players. If we flop, its gonna be a fairly long rebuild anyway, so might as well spend money and try to be exciting.

    Regardless of whether we sign Dumervil, I think the FO has done enough this year to build hope and I do see the Titans as a playoff hopeful next year.

    63 sacks in 6 years? 47.5 of those in the past 3 years.

    He's worth the money.

    Same thinking.

    Sign him to a four year deal. Pay him what it takes.

    Pay him whatever it takes, he makes everyone on that line better. Our middle got really good with the acquisition of Hill, our O-line is one piece away from being GREAT, I see this as the one move our D-Line needs to be the same

    Apparently the Pats have a horrid history with the new agent he hired..to the point where we can rule the Pats out (according to Rotoworld)... We may actually have a shot at this

    Yup looks like if we get a good contract on the table we can sneak in and get this thing done

    Wow if we were to get this done and he joined our defense would instantly be one of the best in the entire league.I think it would easily help us challenge Houston for the division.

    It's still all up to Locker. C'mon Jake, we need you this year!

    It's all fun and games til you remember your QB sails deep balls 10 feet over their head and whips out routes into the bench
