From ESPN Radio today ....
George, Lamont Smith, and Trey Wingo on ESPN Radio today...
TW: Trey Wingo LS: Lamar Smith EG: You know
TW: Will you be a Titan next year?
EG: It doesn't look like a good opportunity right now.
LS: We've worked diligently to come closer to this. If Eddie is not a Titan we want an opportunity to see what's out there, we want closure in the next 24 hours.
TW: What about the Floyd Reese comment two months ago?
EG: After the comment, we had a meeting talking about my role, and my opportunity to make money, that was fine and dandy, what I wanted was a fair offer, that hasn't changed since March. I wanted to retire a Titan, the structure of the deal didnt allow it, it just didnt put me in the best position...it looked like a one year deal. And then I'd be playing year-to-year.
TW: What teams would you like to play for if it doesn't work out with the Titans?
EG: Philly, Tampa, Dallas.
TW: What was the sticking point in the deal?
EG: Really, we were just too far apart. My production was just a result of how I've been used in the offense.
Lamont Smith blamed running back "ageism", the era of the salary cap and the Titans not addressing the O-line as the major obstacles to re-signing George.
.. doesn't sound like he will be back ... he would get booed every time he touched the ball.
