    SUMMARY: Former Colts LB David Thornton is expected to make a visit to the Titans as early as Saturday evening. Thornton, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound outside linebacker, has played in all but one game for the Colts since drafted in 2002. His best season was his second year where he recorded 145 tackles. Last year, he totaled 81 tackles and two sacks. Thornton was a fourth-round pick in 2002 who ran a 4.62 40-yard dash.

    If they get thorton what would they want in round 2 surely not a wr maybe an rb maybe a safety in the 2nd.... who knows thorton bullock maybe a mlb in the 2nd. Maybe they get Mason back from B-more lol not really but it wouldnt hurt us.

    Why do I keep hearing people talk about Mason coming back from Baltimore? Why in the hell would Baltimore want to trade him? Have the said they want to trade him? He was great for them last year. Better than almost any offensive weapon they had aside from maybe Heap. Where is this coming from?

    I'd take Thornton, i'd like to hear wino's (or other Colt fan) thoughts on him though.

    Do we really want a Colts defender? Their finesse (aka "soft") D doesn't cut it. Remember when we used to "pound" people with our D and our OL. Those were the days. We should pay a few extra bucks and bring in a thumper like Witherspoon over Thornton.

    Wait, why sign anyone? Let's just wait till the draft and keep our $11 million. The rookies will put us over the top....5-11 is better than 4-12, isn't it?

    good god you won't shut up will you.

    nothing but whinge whinge whinge. sheesh.

    FYI the Colts 'soft' D almost won them the game which would most likely had put them in the superbowl.
