    That isnt how it always works, if it was nobody would ever be paid huge contracts. There is more than one way to skin a cat. The Bucs gave both Evans and Godwin expensive contracts, and will likely be one of the top teams in the NFC again next year, so paying your guys isnt always a bad thing. Conversely, Houston traded Hopkins and even with Watson, their offense struggled without having a top tier target.

    But Yes, I understand you cant always keep ever player you want. But at the same time, everything isnt always about the future, some times you have to do things for the present. Plus, I dont think the Hill comparison is fair. They got like 5 picks for HIll, we got two for AJ. The Adams trade is more comparable, but Adams is going to turn 30 this season and has been more injury prone than AJ over the years, and yet the Packers still got a little better deal for him than the Titans did. But there are also other factors. The Chiefs have a great QB who is going to make any receiver he plays with better, while the Titans are a team not only without a great QB, but without a lot of depth at receiver. At this point they have a veteran from another team who is coming off an injury and a rookie who has never played an NFL game as the projected top 2 guys.

    IF this was a clear rebuidling phase I would have no issue with this move, but for a team who was the top seed in the conference despite tons of injuries, it just doesnt make sense to me to make this move.

    Agree that we have taken a major step backwards from where we were. We'll be lucky to get half of AJ next year. That means the entire offense is on Henry's shoulders again for at least one year, probably two. Get ready for a ton of carries. We literally have nothing else to rely on. We need three dimensions to compete in the AFC, and we've got one, so I'd say the ceiling is low. The only saving grace is the division is horrendous.

    You forget woods and hooper exist. Our pass catching stable may well end up being better than last year, which was gimpy AJ and nothing at all.

    If we didn't trade AJ, everyone would be pumped about this kid. He's extremely talented.

    The Texans and Watson set a franchise record for passing yards without Hopkins.

    If Brown would have accepted a contract like what Evans or Godwin accepted he would still be a Titan. He clearly wouldn’t. So he walks after this season for nothing and you guys would lose your minds. JRob made the right move for the future.

    You missed the part about tagging him I guess. Titans wouldn’t lose him for nothing. They can tag him and trade him whether AJ signed the tag or not.

    That career high resulted in being the 18th best scoring offense and a team going from being a playoff team to being a 4 win team Passing yards are an extremely over rated stat. Plenty of bad teams or mediocre QBs have high passing yards totals. Jameis Winston has also thrown for over 5000 yards in a season, that doesnt mean it was a great season. Yards dont matter if it doesnt result in points and wins, They clearly missed having one top tier targets in the league.

    Do we know what Brown was offered? If not I dont think we can make that claim, but also, Evans signed a 5 year 82 million deal in 2018, I dont think what the Eagles gave Brown in now is that far off from that type of contract since that was 4 years ago and contract do tend to increase from year to year.

    He might have made the right move for the future, but the present also matters. If all we do is build for the future, then what year should we expect the future to arrive?

    It was all kinds of things for me. In the end he simply isn't worth $25M a year with production to date. He's injury prone and has what appears to be a psychosis, or he is not very emotionally intelligent. I understand that he was our best WR, maybe even ever, but you can't build great teams on emotion. Trading him was the best logical step.

    The more AJ opens his mouth, the happier I am the Titans dealt him. You can’t pay everyone what they ask for. That’s not how it works. The Titans made him an offer than was more than fair. He declined. Goodbye and good riddance.
