Should Titans release McNair?

  1. His $25 million towards this years cap is just crazy... Imagine what we can do with that money... I say we rebuild a kickass defense like the one we had back in 2001-2002. Release McNair, draft a QB on 1st round, let Volek start this season until the rookie QB matures...

    What do you think, guys??

    We'd only save $10M if we cut him. But I wouldn't do it, personally.

    A decision on McNair does not have to be made before the draft so we can wait to see who we draft. I agree that if we draft Leinart (or even Cutler)our options are better than if we Young simply because we have to consider the amount of time it will take to get a QB ready to take over.
    Although I would be against cutting McNair at this point alot depends on McNair's salary demands and how it will hit the CAP in future years. At this point we would be better off keeping McNair the one year and moving on with McNair off the books.

    I agree.

    McMVP should take the paycut and play one more year as a starter for the Titans then become the Million dollar backup man on a year to year basis.

    it's already too late to get the big name free agents like bently and witherspoon, so i would say no.
