    @jwyattsports: Rusty Smith is still practice squad eligible and Munchak said team might not be able to keep 3 QBs #Titans

    I guess I don't understand why Rusty has made the 53 man roster ever. Why would you carry three QBs, if you can easily stash one on the PS and promote when/if needed? He hasn't been a QB, he's been a 1st string clipboard holder. This is not a knock on Rusty, it applies to any 3rd QB.

    Only possible answer is risk management, considering you could injure two QBs in one game.

    Munchak said today that Rusty IS eligible for the PS. Why the hell hasn't be been there his whole career!?

    Thing is, Rusty can go to anyone's practice squad as teams can outbid each other for those players. Someone who is shaky at QB right now (Jets) might pay him a lot more and he'd be crazy not to take it.

    I don't see us keeping Mooney over Johnson at FB.

    Man, I've constantly liked what I've seen from Money Mooney. I am not impressed with Johnson at all as a FB. Seems like he goes half hard. Mooney has been good but I guess there is a situation there where he is the weaker/lesser of the two...


    Regardless if mooney can't make this team, just cut Johnson too. I'd rather have neither than Johnson.

    I actually like Thompson as a blocker so I'd be ok with letting Quinn and Mooney go too.

    I thought it was only eligible to players with 3 years or less. Did they change it in the CBA?
