Mel Kiper looked at the 5 teams (In$ider) that would be the best fit if the Philadelphia Eagles decided to trade Kevin Kolb, and he has the Titans 3rd on the list.  I have spent a lot of time thinking about the Titans QB situation lately, and the more I think about it the more I really hope they go after a guy in the draft or Kolb at the right price.  Sure the best thing for Jeff Fisher is to bring in a guy he can plug in and be decent in 2011 to give him a shot at making the playoffs, but that really isn't what is best for the franchise long term.

Kiper talks about how the Titans wouldn't be desperate to add Kolb because they aren't without any options at QB, which is very debatable, but I do agree with the last line:

It's not enough to make me trade away that No. 8 pick, but if they could get Philly to go for a deal based around the No. 39 pick, maybe they have something.

The problem with that is the price for Kolb is more than likely going to be a lot higher than a 2nd round pick, but if the Titans were somehow able to swing that deal I would be a lot more excited about it than bringing in one of the re-tread guys we have already discusses or spending the #8 pick on a QB.
