Tennessee Titans Daily Links: Jeff Fisher's (Not So) Curious Decision Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 During the 2011 season finale of his call-in radio show Munchak hinted that the team could be hoping for a defensive playmaker in the first round. Ideally that's what I'd like to see, but much of it depends on who's there, and how free agency shakes out.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rumors broke yesterday that Fisher has no desire to be part of another relocation saga, and that could drive him from the arms of St. Louis right to Miami. You can believe that's the case if you want, but lets not forget the Dolphins' public pledge to beat any financial offer Fisher receives. I'm sure Fisher's accountant hasn't forgotten it. Would Fisher really pick the Dolphins, who have no QB, have been running a 3-4 defense, hold a meh first round draft pick, a GM better known for controversy than results and a notoriously volatile star WR... just because the Rams might move to his hometown in a few years? Really?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 And then there's this: the Dolphins could end up paying Jeff Fisher $40 million. Have they seen his winning percentage? I mean, WTF?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K is piling together some things AFC South teams should regret, and moving Jason Jones tops his list for the Titans. Jones' disappointing year has been well chronicled here, and it could well lead to a parting of the ways if another team offers him a spot as a pass rushing DT. I think the Titans may have a chance to lure Jones back with the right package of promises, but after being mishandled this season he might not want to take another chance with his NFL career.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Blogging The Boys had some downer notes on Brett Maxie yesterday, so Jim Wyatt is hear to make you feel a little better about the only public candidate for the Titans' open DB coaching spot:

-In Maxie's first season as secondary (safeties) coach for Dallas, his tutelage of a defensive secondary helped the unit finish fifth in the NFL by holding opponents to 187.7 passing yards-per-game. Seven of the team's eight interceptions came by way of a member of the secondary under Maxie's coaching, including Newman's then career-high tying and team-leading four interceptions.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The prospect of Fisher heading to Miami has Dolphins media and fans excited.
