New, comments

The Titans spent a lot of money to bring Kamerion Wimbley in 2 years ago. Now they are asking him to take a pay cut.

I found it odd that there was no news on the Kamerion Wimbley front.  After Chris Johnson and David Stewart, Wimbley seemed like the most likely guy from last year's team to get cut.  He was just making too much money for what his production had been on the field...As Wyatt followed up with here:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Wimbley is a good fit in the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Titans&amp;src=hash">#Titans</a> new defense. But coming off a 3-sack season, his big salary is an issue. If he balks, could be released</p>&mdash; Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) <a href="https://twitter.com/jwyattsports/statuses/452095759148515328">April 4, 2014</a></blockquote>

Hopefully they will be able to work something out because Wimbley is one of just a few guys on the roster that has experience in a 3-4 in the NFL.  Ray Horton would benefit from having him out there, and as Wyatt said, Wimbley is a better fit for that scheme.

Stay tuned.
