    If we cut him soon is it safe to say that we're doing it to free up some cash to go after Dumervil? I know we'd only save like 1.9 mil but every bit counts.

    Isn't dumervil gonna want like 7+ mill a year? That basically guarantees that CJ and Griffin are gone after next year then unless either has a pro bowl worthy year. We're gonna have negative cap space next off season.

    Dumervil ain't worth 8 mil/yr.

    I'd rather offer Winfield 2 million for 1 year.

    would be best off-season ever. it also shows we will go OLine early still in the draft. both of these things are muy bueno.

    We only save $1.9M in cap space by cutting Amano but if they don't think he is going to start at center or right guard why pay $3.6M in salary for a backup?

    They have until the last cut to get rid of him so they have the opportunity to bring him in camp and see how he plays.

    Dumervil is too rich for us right now and we are already paying Wimbley big money so stop dreaming on that one.

    So, i'm on Spring Break in Cancun... found a Starbucks for some coffee and wi-fi and DAYUM my Titans actually did some moves!

    I still want us to pickup Brad Jones. He's only 26 and can play all 3 LB positions. Have we resigned 'Spoon? Our LB depth would be set with:

    OLB: Ayers, Brown, Spoon, and Fokou
    ILB: McCarthy, Jones, and Shaw

    Resign Spoon for a small 2year/vet min deal. Unlikely he'll get more elsewhere. Brad Jones on a 3year/5mil deal.

    Still gives us about ~4mil to spend, use it on a CB:

    Chris Gamble, DeAngelo Hall, Antoine Winfield, Brent Grimes, Nnamdi Asomugha, Quentin Jammer, or Rashean Mathis

    Sign one of those FA vet CBs and we'll be set, 2 year contract for them... then draft like:

    1st: DE or OG (Ansah, Werner, Cooper, or Warmack)
    2nd: DE or OG
    3rd-7th: BPA

    1. GTFO this board and go enjoy spring break
    2. In case not then here you go:
    I'm assuming you've caught up on all of our signings but Jones is still here in Nashville today, Pollard visited yesterday, and apparently we were the final team in for Welker and Keenan Lewis. I guess that DE from Oakland as well. Spoon hasn't be re-signed yet but starting to wonder if we do that or just take a late round pick if we do sign Jones. Spoon would be our 6th LB, wonder what his contract would be like. Washington is probably going to be cut/traded soon so we're going to need a slot WR either in FA or the draft, Gibson went to Miami. A lot of people starting to question OG in 1st since both Cooper and Warmack play LG as well but I'm not sure how big of an adjustment that would be. Right now RG, CB, DE, and WR are our biggest needs. Also apparently we'll be releasing Amano soon.
