    Agent Thinks Titans to Release Hopkins

    SUMMARY: Mark Bartelstein, the agent representing LT Brad Hopkins, thinks his client will be released in just a few days. "The Titans have a tough cap situation, which we are sensitive to. If I had to guess right now I would say probably Brad will be on the market as a free agent," said Bartelstein. "He’d love to stay in Tennessee, but I don’t know if it is going to be possible from a cap standpoint." The 13-year veteran had a $5 million option put in his contract last offseason and is scheduled to earn a base salary of $4.25 million.

    Hopkins is no longer a stallwart, his ability and contribution has been on the decline last year

    I like where Banshee is going with that. I want the Titans be built from the ground up. The idea of a young, physically dominating line just makes me want to pick up a chair and throw it. (that's good btw) :flame:

    I'm getting sick of watching Steve get the crap
    knocked out of him 8-10 times a game.

    No. That's wrong. That line needs re-birth.
    Circle of life. Fare thee well.

    So long number 72, it's been a good 13 years. I wish him good luck in the future and I hope he gets a chance with someone else, if he still wants to play.
    On a related note, wouldn't it be cool if we draft Leinert? We could replace Hoppy with a bum and save money. Roos can protect his blindside.

    Hopkins was an All-Pro with a HoFer at his right elbow and average at best with lesser teamates at his side. Hopkins has been stinking up the LT position for 3 years now. Good riddence and this is definatly a case of addition by subtraction - it just should have been done sooner.

    Yeah, but you gotta give it to Hopkins, he said he thought he would be cut before it was annonuced, so obviously he did pretty good on the Wonderlic.
