It isn't just this move. 

 

Losing Conklin for nothing, trading Casey for a 7th, paying Dennis Kelly etc.

 

He has work to do. Right now he's doing a real shitty job.

 

Letting Conklin walk without comp may have been the best move available. I wish he would have tagged Conklin, but if he did that there's a chance he doesn't/can't move him and we get stuck with him. Teams willing to sign him in FA might be less inclined to do so if they know they'll have to fork over draft capital to do so. He signed with the Browns pretty quickly for not as much as people thought he'd get... maybe he wasn't as hot a commodity as we thought?

 

On top of that, if we used the tag on Conklin we didn't have it available for Henry... who they seem not to be close to a deal with. So we use it on Conk, get stuck with him because people don't value him as much as all that, and then lose Henry to some other team offering him the moon.

 

Who would you rather we lose without immediate comp in that scenario? Conklin or Henry?

I wonder how this sits with Vrabel. Same thing happened to him at the end of his Patriot playing career and he was practicing "social distancing" from that organization before it was recommended.

 

I would think he might have a problem with moves like this... as a former player who was insulted by the same treatment.

There's no way Vrabel wasn't involved in the decision

With Simmons coming on during the stretch run it makes a lot of sense. Jones outplayed him last year as well. It’s tough to pay 16 for a guy who likely wouldn’t be a full time starter. 
 

Sucks though. He never bitched and was a true lunch pale type guy who was consistently underrated around the league.

Wow I’m actually sad to see him go. One of my favorite players. Always gave full effort even when we were the worst team in the league. 
 

I’ll never forget him chasing down a WR (TE?) from behind going 1000 MPH even though we were on track to finish worst in the league.

Yeah, I do feel sad that he played on some truly shitty Titans teams in the early 2010s.

I didn't say he wasn't involved. He was thunderstruck by his own treatment in this fashion by the Patriots. Maybe he now sees it from a new perspective. I just don't see him being as heartless as Belichick comes off in these situations.

Well I believe Vrabel was annoyed that Belichick only told him about the trade after it was already done. I would think the Titans asked Casey to take a pay cut and explained they weren't going to keep him around
