Welcome to the Titans, Will Witherspoon. The veteran LB should provide good depth behind the aging and injury prone David Thornton, as well as some insurance should Bulluck's recovery from a knee injury not progress quickly. I know the Eagles bloggers didn't have much to say about him, but Witherspoon is a heck of an athlete who I completely trust under the expert tutelage of David McGinnis. This signing also severely decreases the chances we take a LB with that first pick in the draft.
Further proof that even Jeff Fisher isn't above saying dumb things when it comes to Football Jesus:
He said he believes former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow "is going to be a really good player. He's a winner. He just wins football games, just like (Titans QB) Vince Young just wins football games."
Who knew tight ends/H-backs could 'just win games'?
In a related story, if you need a loan, here's the man to call today.
Follow us through the link to find out where Fisher and Reinfeldt were (or weren't) as free agency opened...
Terry McCormick writes about whether or not the Titans have a clear free agency plan, given that as the market opened Fisher was out of state and Reinfeldt was speaking at a local high school. It's a good read, alhough there's one bit I take issue with: McCormick says we weren't drafting for need when we took CJ. That's a bit untrue as Fisher said right after the draft what every fan had been saying that off-season: we have to get a playmaker. So yes, we weren't drafting for positional need, but we were drafting for strategic need.
If the Titans wish to sign their second ex-Eagle this offseason in Jason Babin, they'll need to outbid the Philadelphia front-office. Because of these screwy non-cap rules the Eagles have the 'right of first refusal' on any offer, making Babin essentially a non-compensation RFA.
Paul K is starting to question whether we should've made the trade that brought Jared Cook last year. The really annoying part is that we drafted two Juniors in the second round last year and got minimal production from them. That had better change this year on both accounts.
Jim Sorgi's tombstone will read "Here lies Jim Sorgi, lifetime understudy to the Manning Clan."
Master blaster Phileyoung had it in the FanPosts yesterday, but bravo to Bulluck for surprising some local kids with $1,000 scholarships even as he may be on his way out of town. *sigh*
Sal Paolantonio just made my day by letting it leak that no teams are interested in hiring an overrated, nominally-remorseful hack to play QB. I suppose Tony Dungy will step in and guilt trip another team into taking this life-long loser.
