NFL Trades

ESPN remembered that the Titans play in the NFL, and included them in a post about trades that should happen. We can debate the use of the verb should all day, but I was more curious what people thought of the proposal. The entire article is for in$iders only so I don't want to steal the whole thing from them. So, I just cut and paste the Titans portion.

San Diego Chargers trade running back Ryan Mathews to the Tennessee Titans for left tackle Michael Roos

Why it works for San Diego: After signing Donald Brown to a three-year deal, the backfield will be crowded for San Diego this coming season. Danny Woodhead also plays an integral role, and Ronnie Brown could be re-signed. Mathews was excellent last year, but Brown's presence would cut into his snaps. Roos is 31 and entering the final year of his contract, but he's among the more consistent and reliable players at his position. San Diego pieced it together along the offensive line last year, but Roos would bring a different level of ability to protect QB Philip Rivers' blind side.

Why it works for Tennessee: Signs continue to point to Chris Johnson not being back in Tennessee next season, meaning the team will need a running back to carry the heavy load. Mathews has dealt with numerous injuries during his career, but he was at his best with Ken Whisenhunt -- now the Titans' head coach -- as his offensive coordinator. Losing Roos would really sting, but Tennessee's running back depth chart is scary beyond Johnson right now (and not in a good way). Mathews, like Roos, has one more year on his contract.

Like I said I am wondering what other people in this community think of the idea. As for me I think it is a terrible idea.
