    He's been great when he's healthy. His hammies must be held together by scotch tape though.

    That being said, I'd love to have him on the team if he came cheap enough. My guess is he's looking for at least 5-6 million per, and if we're handing that out, we might as well go with Hilton.

    I wonder if Olivier Vernon will be ready to play by the season start. Dude is always a beast and already had 9 sacks when he tore his Achilles last year. If he’s healthy I’d love him as a depth piece pass rusher.

    That being said, I’d bet all the matzo balls in Israel that Clowney comes back if he clears his health check in April.

    I think one guy recovering from a major injury is enough for me.

    I think he will have something to prove and come back motivated. Would love to bring him back for another year next to Jeff and autry

    Clowney - Big Jeff - Autrey
    Dupree - Jayon - Rashaan - Landry

    That's a nasty front 7 if all are healthy.

    Clowney sucks. Don’t pay him to tarnish a Titans jersey.

    That's not bad idea There are a couple other vets still out there: Justin Houston, Melvin Ingram, Carlos Dunlap, Aldon Smith. Huston would be my choice. They are all older, but technically Aldon Smith should have fresh legs. I can see him making a jump in his second year back playing.

    Problem is, I think we're out of money. Still not sure the cap hit on the latest signings. We know the draft will eat up about #9m and JRob likes to keep some cash on hand when the season starts for emergencies. Maaaaybe could sneak in an old vet, but to keep Clowney, he would need to pull a rabbit out of a hat. To be honest, he already kind of did to get Bud Dupree.

    Of the names still out there, I'm actually intrigued by Malik Hooker. More talent than production. Injuries have really derailed his career. He's only 25 though and should come cheap. It's a roll of the dice. If we are set on having Amani Hooker start anyway, then we're not really risking much. A few years ago we utilized a 3 safety look a lot, and it was pretty effective. I know Byard is a FS, but I think he has the tools to play closer to the line. If Malik Hooker can rebound his career, even as a role player, we can get very creative with Byard.

    Plus... two Hookers is better than one.

    I’d rather have Keanu Neal but we definitely need a third starting caliber safety with how often we use three safety looks. If Amani replaces Vacarro, who’s gonna replace Amani’s 476 snaps from last year?

    Wish we had made a run at Malik hooker. He could have really been an asset.
