    The release of Isaac Bruce intrigues me. When you hear Bruce’s now former teammates speak of him they always do so in glowing terms. His superior work ethic and willingness to tutor young teammates are often cited. This praise is born out in the success the Rams have often had with their young wideouts. I think Bruce would be an excellent free agent for the Titans to consider signing. Rather than spending free agent dollars on someone with potential (like David Givens for example), I think that money would be more wisely spent on an established pro such as Bruce. I never thought the Titans had any shot of signing a high priced free agent like Reggie Wayne had he become available, but Bruce considering his age and the cash strapped situation many clubs find themselves in this off season, might be a viable option for the Titans.

    I dunno
    Bruce is like 33 now

    damn '95 was an awesome year for him (119 / 1781 / 13tds)

    but I think he's on his last ferry

    I agree with Puck... Bruce is old and busted. Just say no.

    Yeah, he didn't perform particularly well this year, afaik, being overshadowed by all the other receivers in STL.

    I think Bruce would be a great pick up. A one or two year deal to the vet minimum would be do-able. Even though he didn't light it up last year(mostly due to the emergence of the other "younger" recievers), he's still did better than what our WR corp did last year.

    When I think of Bruce i think of that TD in the Super Bowl where he burned something like 3 Titans players.
    But I agree with Puck, don't go for him, his best and good years are gone

    Unless we can get him in like an incentive laden contract, I still think he could be a valuable leader for the young recieving corps. If he can stay healthy, he's still got some spark, and this will probably just motivate him even more.

    Bruce is over the hill. No point in signing him.
    I know several Rams fans is glad they got rid of him.

    The way I see it, the Titans don't need to look at free agents they think can only give them a couple of years. What's the point?

    The goal should be a couple of seasons of getting ready for a serious run in '08 and beyond. You do that by getting your current talent as much experience as possible and bringing in guys with long-term upside. I don't think we'll see the Titans sinking any more money on 30+ year old vets.
