I watched he said he expected Tannehill to be the QB next season.  There is no one to trade him to and it would have already happened by now 

 

Lol, pretty different from headline.

If "impending retirement" is a dumbass way to say he's getting older, I'm banning the next douche who posts one of that guy's tweets.

Titans fans in 2022: "This roster is old, over-paid, and way too injury prone. We have to tear it down completely"!   *Ran cuts most of the old, over-paid, or injury prone players*  

I'm mad as fuck. I want Carthon gone

I don't blame Byard for refusing to take a pay cut, if true. They asked him to restructure his contract multiple times, moving his yearly salary into the future. It's kinda messed up to tell him to move money into the future so that his yearly salary looks lower, then complain that his future salary is too high. It wouldn't be so high if they had kept his contract where it was.

 

But Carthon didn't make those deals and isn't beholden to JRob's commitments. All he sees is a FS making way too much money.

Consider the source.  He knows crap and he got his wish people are talking about him 

He claims to have a source separate from yesterday's Lombardi report.

Who cares?  He's not breaking the cap.  Sometimes the Titans try to act like the Patriots too much and it doesn't work.

Well it’s a question of what else they could do with the money. I have no idea who they would replace him with, but I understand the desire to save the cap space on an older player who is excellent but not elite.

He didn’t give up anything by restructuring in the past. And his salary this year is high regardless. Especially when they signed Hooker to a new deal last year, too.

You realize Players benefit from restructures as well right? Its not they moved money into later years and didn't hpay him more up front in either signing or roster bonuses.

They're being cheap.  They can afford it, he's clearly still a good player, getting rid of a guy like Byard when they don't have to just makes zero sense.

Sigh... Here we go with the irrational crap. They don't want to get rid of Byard. They asked him to restructure and take a pay cut to gain cap relief. A common tactic all 32 teams do every year for players like Byard who are close or already are on the wrong side of 30.

They have the second most cap space in the league now, don't they?

 

There's no need for this.  He's one of the leaders of the team.  He's still a good player.  They can afford it.  They're creating issues where none need to be created.

It’s just the cap. There’s only so much to go around. If they pay Byard, they can’t pay someone else. Opportunity cost.

Love the guy..:but we do have way too much $$ tied up on the safety position.

 

That’s really Robinson’s fault, not Byard.

 

the reality? If they traded Byard and replaced him with a decent, younger FA…there would not be much drop off.

In terms of Ws and Ls maybe, but in terms of versatility and high end play he's easily a top 3 safety. There would almost certainly be a sizable drop off. Add in that Hooker wasn't healthy all last year.

They need more space this year to continue to build out the roster. 2024 is the year they have the 2nd most cap space. Again asking Byard to take a pay cut is within reason. He can say no and be cut next year. Its highly unlikely they outright release him this year imo.
