The Titans should chase Dwight Freeney

29

Get permission to negotiate with him in advance of the swap, and draw up a three- or four-year deal for him. Then, as you play the game, be willing to give up No. 20 this year -- or your first-round pick next season, if you’re certain you will be better and it will be a worse pick. Freeney is worth the 20th pick and big money, provided you can strike a contract deal. That’s a move that would amount to the Titans saying they are about right now, not 2014. That’s when a first-round defensive end picked at the end of April will likely be ready to be a consistent factor – if he emerges as a top-level pass-rusher at all. This is not a great defensive end class. The odds are against getting an immediate impact rusher at No. 20. Meanwhile Freeney is a matchup nightmare, whose spin move and quickness are incredibly difficult to slow. He’ll always draw a double, making life easier on everyone on the line. ***PULL THE F-IN TRIGGER!!!!!!!111111
