Jones trade talks heating up

The Titans might win the damn Super Bowl next year. They are going to be unstoppable on offense if they pair up Jones with AJ Brown and Derrick Henry.  YIKES!!

It would make a LOT of sense for the Titans IMO. I wouldn't be surprised if the wheels start falling off of Henry soon. That running style takes its toll. There aren't many Jerome Bettis and Jamal Lewis types that last long-term running like that.

Even though Henry is only 27 and Jones is 32, they might be on similar career timelines.

Which means they also qualify as a team going for it this year. And expect their first round draft pick to be at or at least near the very bottom of the round

Your comment makes me think of Earl Campbell.  Probably the best running back I saw, at least for five or so years.

Outside of Jim Brown, Earl was probably the only RB that defenders were afraid to tackle.

Very possible, in fact, probably likely....BUT Henry could also be the next Adrian Peterson/Frank Gore/Bettis type of guy who kicks ass well into his 30s.  Its crazy that hes only 27.  I feel like I have been seeing him truck guys for 12 years now.

I saw a story where Earl Campbell was hit by a truck a couple of years ago.

Word was the truck survived but it needed a lot of repair work.

When reports start getting specific about the amount of trade capital (1st rounder) and expected time (next week) it sometimes can be the team looking to trade the player trying to create interest.  I’m not saying that is the case all of the time but definitely sometime.

I’m thinking a second, but as others have said maybe a first from a really good team who expects to be picking late in the round.

it's a lie 

I believe it is as well. I don't think anyone is giving up a 1st rounder for a 32 year old overpaid receiver. 

What will he realistically add to an offense? 800-1000 yards and 5 or 6 touchdowns for maybe 2 years if that?

He has scored 8 or more touchdowns 4 times over a ten year career and only started all 16 games 3 times.

Anything more than a late 2nd round pick is too much. I think a third is more likely.

    • I dont think houses are going to be under water. Houses are being bought with cash by investors sight unseen.  The market may slow way down and prices may level off but I dont think we see a big reversal.  Especially in Charlotte where so many people are moving. I just visited friends in Salt Lake their house is maybe 1400 square feet,  similar distance to downtown as our rental. The value on their home is 650k, we could probably sell our rental for 210 right now. Charlotte market has plenty more room to run unfortunately.  Especially when most of the people moving here are used to prices like in Salt Lake city 
    • I want us to grab a Center in FA rather than give up assets.. Even though this team is probably the best built team we have seen since we got the Hornets name back - We don't necessarily have a overflowing pool of talent where we can just give away pieces.. With that said - the FA pool is pretty shallow for starters.. Holmes and Jarrett are really the only starters from the bunch.. if we can't get Holmes or Jarrett, I am all for getting a Allstar caliber starting Center by any means (sans Ball/Rozier/Bridges).. In Mitch I Trust
    • It's a struggle this year to keep up with it all. There's been turnover, of course, but there's something else. Rhule and Co. haven't been picking up well known names in free agency. They are deep diving a bit more than we've seen in a loooong time. Combine that with this being one of the youngest teams in the league (if not THE youngest) and it might be more than my tired, old brain can keep up with. All 90, no way... I might get to 50 if I really worked at it and most of them would be carry over players. Still, I'm really in hopes that they find some uncut diamonds in all of this recruiting/drafting, some folks that aren't well know right now but who will be unforgettable after this year.
