Titans All In on Clowney (Update: Russini Expects him to Sign with Titans)

Seattle somehow managed.  They'll find someone.  

 

It's probably the easiest position on offense or defense to fill.

 

They scored 28 points in a game that freaking Dawkins and Lewis were carrying the ball.

 

Aside from Wilson running, Seattle did not manage.

 

The Titans have a similar offense/philosophy and literally have nobody behind Henry.  Paying a RB a huge contract is one thing.  Saying they don't matter at all is ridiculous.

You were happy with Lewis then?

Certainly not.  And they scored 28 points in a game where he was the feature back.

 

Which is my point.

I said they're easy to find.  Big difference. 

 

I know they'll probably do it but I would not use a high pick on a RB.  If they can find a veteran fine.  But there are more pressing needs.

It's cheaper to draft one than sign a veteran.  I do agree that they don't need to go one at 29 or round 2 unless it's someone they love that essentially allows them to have real leverage or an alternative to Henry

That's true.  But they can certainly afford to sign one.

 

They need young talent on the front 7.  I know they've gotten younger and better there but they need to continue to do it.  That's what the draft is for.

Build through the draft is always best and I think they can address their needs across the board there.  I do think they will add another edge, whether it's Clowney, re-signing Correa, etc.

But it is probably better to draft a RB for the long term anyway.  I agree with you on the front 7 part but for a team that runs the ball as much as we do, the RB does have increased value.  Plus we have no idea how the negotiations with Henry are.

If they do I'd do it no earlier than round 3.  Actually I wouldn't at all but I know that's not realistic.

Only on Titansreport.com are people worrying about the #2 running back.

 

That's a bit of stretch in the modern NFL.

If they traded down and acquired more picks, I could see it earlier.  And if they take one in the first two rounds that tells me a lot about the Henry negotiations.

Right now they have 3 picks in the first 4 rounds.  They need to be focusing on other areas.  IMO.

 

They didn't lose the AFC Championship game because of who their 2nd running back was...

Don’t disagree with you but they seem to have placed it as a priority.

Yep.  I don't agree with it but whatever.

If Henry gets dinged we don't want to be desperate on offense.  There are plenty of vet RBS available right now and we can probably sign one for a decent contract.  Carlos Hyde is out there with a market value of only 3 M.  Ran for 1000 yards last year and caught 59 balls one year with the 49ers.  No idea what Freeman is looking for but he is another.  Crowell and Riddick just signed for deals at 3M or less.
