This is my point. You guys are making too many assumptions. It's like people on this board love to find reasons to be mad/upset with the Titans. For all we know it's the Brown's fault for not competing the trade. The quote was "we had almost made trades... and backed out". Maybe JUST MAYBE Cleveland realized they could get their guy later and decided not to trade. MAYBE it wasn't the Titan's "failure" at all. Clearly an attempt was made to trade down. To me, it doesn't seem like they're trying to cover up anything and I don't intepreit his comment as a lie. If others choose it see it that way, so be it.
