    We're on the same page I think and I'm personally rooting for #1 to occur, but what I said originally is that if we (front office) don't have any sincere intentions of him playing here in 06 we'll make a move pretty quickly. I'm leaving the option open that bridges have been burned that can't be rebuilt and we're just jerkin' the Ravens around right now. I hope that's not the case and I think that Fisher is probably McNair's strongest ally in Nashville right now. When Fisher says, we're going to do everything we can to work it out, I believe him. When Reese says it, I think... meh.... maybe.:ha:

    I didn't keep up with the Arrington situation. What went down there?

    Sorry for the multiple posts, but what did Reese actually say regarding this? I can't remember reading anything about us keeping McNair at his current number outside of fan opinions. If he said something to that effect to the media I'd be thrilled that he's publicly stated it's an option the front office is considering.

    Arrington got Washington to release him early by forfeiting a $4.4M bonus that they had to pay him later on. It was moronic and he lost a ton of money thinking that he was going to get some huge payday as a free agent.

    As for Steve, that scenario isn't an option for him. There's nothing for him to forfeit that would convince the Titans to cut him. They already save the maximum cap run whenever they cut or trade him.

    Reese said before the free agency period that the team was willing to just ride out the $10 mil for '06. Maybe Reese was blowing smoke because he then went out and signed the FAs.

    I have a hard time seeing that but I would think it would keep some options open.

    I don't think Arrington was so stupid. Maybe it wasn't about the money. If you'll think back, there was some problems between Arrington and the coaching staff. They actually benched him at one point. Washington was ready for him to go and Arrington was ready to go somewhere he was wanted.

    They had to release him anyway, it just would have waited until after June 1.

    It was definitely stupid...
