NFL Trade Deadline: Ken Whisenhunt Says Titans Unlikely to Make Any More Moves

New, comments

The Titans traded Akeem Ayers last week, but Ken Whisenhunt said at his weekly press conference that the team is unlikely to make any additional moves.

Trades are pretty rare in the NFL.  So the fact that the Titans made a move last week, shipping Akeem Ayers to the Patriots, means that the odds are there will be no more moves before tomorrow's NFL trade deadline.  Ken Whisenhunt said at his weekly press conference today that he doesn't see the team moving anyone else.

Hopefully Ruston Webster has other ideas.  If teams are calling about a guy like Michael Griffin, Webster should make that happen.  Griffin can still be a good player at times, but his best ball is behind him.  He is not going to be a key cog in this team's rebuild.  There is no reason to keep him if there is any kind of offer on the table.

The same can be said for Nate Washington.  His contract is up at the end of the year.  There is virtually no chance he will be back here next season, and he could really help a team, like the New York Giants, that could use some help at wide receiver.

Wesley Woodyard was another guy that was rumored before.  He is another guy that should be expendable.

This team has a lot of needs going forward.  There is no reason to hang on to any of the veterans that aren't going to be able to help over the next 2-5 years.  They need all of the picks they can get to hopefully find some difference makers in the draft.
