Well I think you can take safety off the need list for the draft. I am not sure both Wilson & Pollard will be on the opening day roster?


I would disagree, who do we have at safety behind those 3? Johnson, Martin, Aflava? I think a 5th or 6th round pick could be spent on a developmental safety like Cooper Taylor. Remember Pollard only signed for one year.


I should have been more clear. I meant off the list at the top of the draft. Vaccaro, Elam, Reid, Cyprien & Shamrko Thomas will definately be off their radar now. I like DJ Swanger(sp) from South Carolina in the 4th or 5th. RoJo looked terrible last year. I think Martin will be pretty good. Aflava is a wasted roster spot IMO.


Man Swearigner is a better player than Thomas, Reid and maybe Elam he wont be around in the 4th. And I agree that I want to give Martin a shot but who knows how healthy he will be Cooper Taylor is a player I would love to target in the 5th or 6th. He is huge at 6'5" 235 and he runs well could be a good developmental SS.


Maybe they can grab Swearinger in the 3rd with one of the comp picks? That would be great.

I still think that will be tough, I have Elam, Cyipren and Swearinger going in the high to mid 2nd.

Man their is going to be some roster turnover in preseason. All these FA's plus the draft picks equates to some familiar faces parting ways eventually.

Not sure there's room for Wilson and Pollard, but I guess we'll see. Like having Pollard if only for his scare factor

Why not, they would not have signed both if there wasnt. Plus we have zero depth at safety and Wilson brings a veteran leader which we have been lacking for years.

The thing that scares me about Pollard is a personal foul penalty at a crucial time in a game this year & his locker room mutiny in Baltimore last year. Also in the Super Bowl Vernon Davis was beating him and Ray Lewis like a drum. We know how opposing TEs love to feast on the Titans. Did I mention the Titans play the 49ers this year? I hope one of these guys (Wilson or Pollard) solidifies the SS position at least for 2013. Pray
Neither signing impressed me, but it is what it is.

I LOVE the signing! I hope we draft another safety in the middle to later rounds though. I am all for releasing Al Afalva, Robert Johnson, Suaesi Tuimaunei, and Tracy Wilson.

Awesome free agency period this year!

Awesome news!

Being a young (20) Titans fan I'm so used to a boring free agency with a few minor additions.

Absolutely loving all this activity and I like this deal a lot. Huge upgrade to our D that we really needed.

Bring on the draft! Very Happy

That's all I have to say.

What a FA period.

Why not, they would not have signed both if there wasnt. Plus we have zero depth at safety and Wilson brings a veteran leader which we have been lacking for years.


Just doesn't make sense carrying a backup safety that would be 30 - I'm assuming Pollard will be the starter by the end of camp if healthy. At that point we'd be better off with a younger guy that has more upside. The competition is great though and I think we need more of it.

Hoping that Pollard can be more of a 3-4 year solution if he keeps his head right. The more the coaching staff uses Griff as a center-fielder the better. Never understood why they wanted him so close to the line the past year or two.

Yea it does, Pollard is more of a one trick pony and it makes sense to have as many options as possible especially since Wilson has a very cheap contract.

That's a good thing, right? One thing about it, nobody can accuse Munchak and the FO of just sitting on their hands and not making any moves. They're not BSing around this offseason. We intend to make some noise.

I'd pump the brakes a bit on any noise-making. Still have leaps and bounds to improve on the pass rush and moving the ball on offense. But yea, if Munch doesn't somehow at least eke into the playoffs that's probably it on his time here.
