Justin Hunter Trade Rumors: Browns Reportedly Interested in Titans WR

New, comments

Debunking a stupid NFL trade rumor.

Scott Cunningham

So this morning I get on Twitter and see that some dude is reporting that the Browns and Titans are talking about a deal to for Justin Hunter.  That person said that Ken Whisenhunt is done with Hunter, and the Browns are interested.

Then, to make the rumor even better, some other dude is reporting that the deal would be Isaiah Crowell, WHO WAS UNDRAFTED, for Hunter.  My response:

Crowell, as I mentioned yesterday, is a good back, but the Titans are not giving up on Hunter yet, and they sure as heck aren't going to trade a guy that they gave up a 3rd round pick to move up and get for an undrafted guy.  I thought Jim Wyatt had a perfect response to this rumor on Twitter:
