    http://www.tennessean.com/article/2...SPORTS/Titans still see slimmer LenDale White

    I couldn't get that one to load for some reason so I searched.

    This one is funny in a way.

    first, his current weight is awesome. it said he was at 265 last season so apparently all that hell we gave him was earned. He said he laid off the Patron. This is the time when I insert that picture of Vince with the Patron bottle...

    but I don't feel like it.

    I'm thinking LenDale is going to be a real player this year and if he puts up I hope he gets a new contract. If the Titans are going to be a run-oriented team I think you have to have two guys that can start.

    Thanks. Now we're a gang of two. A contract would be nice, but I'm expecting the franchise tag. Wonder if Chris thinks the Titans are going to make him the lone horse.

    Why didn't you do that several years ago? Under contract then, now you want a better contract. A contract better than what fat players get.

    That kind of thinking might have helped when you entered the NFL! <u>Amazing what changes can be made with the right incentives!!!!!</u>

    If Ringer turns out to be exactly that, a "Ringer", screw LenDales contract. 2010 might be Johnson & Ringer with LenDale in Baltimore.
    I would never think they would franchise LenDale. That would mean that they would have to over pay him. He's not worth it IMO.

    franchise tag? woah, woah, let's not get ahead of ourselves. When did White all of a sudden become a top 5 running back? He's not even the best running back on his team. If he doesn't get himself a nice extension or a new contract at some point in the season while he is looking good then let him go get himself a new contract in free agency. Evidently Reinfeldt knows how to draft running backs.
    he wouldn't be worth top five money, but if he's more than talk i'd like to keep a guy for a good price. Johnson could end up being a top 5 kind of guy. I'll tell you something though. I think White needs someone like Reggie Bush or Chris Johnson around. I think I have the impression he gets Haynesworthy. Maybe the pressure of trying to be better than another back motivates him. I wonder how he would respond to being the featured back after signing a fa contract with another team? Tequila Time :drink: or Touchdown Time? :helmet:

    He'd wear down before mid season.

    Whether a team throws starting dollars on him depends on this season alone.
