    I'll bet you he doesn't play another game for the Titans with a contract thats the biggest in RB history..

    The titans are thinking longterm and are basically giving CJ very few options.

    -Keep holding out and miss the entire year or be traded

    -Come back and play, finish out your current contract or one slightly better than your current one.

    Hope is 2 years past his prime and Gage should've never been our #1 receiver. I appreciate what both have done here. Especially Hope. But the name of the game is winning and there's other players who give us a better chance at winning.

    You pay your best players. You've got to look at it like a business. Hope has made good money here in TN. I wish him the best but he should be restructuring and assuming a backup role.

    Highest-paid running back ever= slightly more than $800,000.

    You're dense.

    the hell are you talking about? 800K is no where near what most starting RB's in the league are making right now..

    It's not that difficult to understand

    I'll wager that Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans does NOT get a new deal worth "Largest Amount of Money ever for a Runningback" from the Titans.

    I'll take that. You have to put "I grab my ankles for Chris Johnson." in your sig for 30 days if he is not made the highest paid running back by the Titans.

    I'll put whatever you'd like in mine for 30 days.

    lets assume that we get a mid round pick in the first round and 2nd round for cj

    but first...tell me what cj was coming out of college...AN UNKNOWN...everyone said it was a reach for us and look how it panned out...so i would take that with trying to get 2 potential starters for your proven elite rb that is only got 3 years before he is washed up...

    we could get a solid starting rb and a solid safety in place of cj...i'd take that
