Titans Trade

August 1, 2008

The Tennessee Titans made history yesterday by trading away their entire 2009 draft.  To Carolina the Titans traded first and second round picks, and running back Chris Henry, for Steve Smith.  To Detroit they traded their third, fifth, seventh, and a first rounder in 2010 for Roy Williams. (The Titans had no 4th rounder in 2009 due to Pacman Jones's continuing woes.)

NFL analysts see this as a wise move given Tennessee's inability to keep up with league standards in the draft.  Clearly flummoxed by the phenomenon of "players vanishing right before we pick", and "teams moving this way and that," Tennessee made a break with the draft altogether.  Says coach Jeff Fisher, "As an organization you want what's best for the team first, and we decided that drafting wasn't in our best interest--at least for the time being."

GM Mike Reinfeldt says the Titans are in negotiations to trade all draft picks through 2012.
