Default Titans lose three more

Rumor Alert

Jacob Bell-G-Titans Mar. 3 - 7:24 pm et

The Rams have reportedly agreed to terms on a six-year contract with free agent OG Jason Bell.

Post-Dispatch writer Bernie Miklasz doesn't have numbers yet, but he's likely getting about $4 million a year. Bell, 26, is only 6'4/295, but is considered sound technically and was part of a good Titans line. Of course, he was flanked by two excellent players, C Kevin Mawae and LT Michael Roos.
Source: St. Louis Post Dispatch


Antwan Odom-DL-Bengals Mar. 3 - 6:40 pm et

Bengals agreed to terms with DE Antwan Odom on a five-year, $29.5 million contract. The deal includes $11.5 million guaranteed.

The Bengals' recent moves (also trying to deal for Dewayne Robertson) indicate they're not sold on using a 3-4 in 2008. Odom, 26, had a career best eight sacks while playing in a rotation with Travis LaBoy in 2007. He had 21 total tackles. The Bengals will likely put him at right end, a position he's struggled at, and ask him to play every down. We'd avoid him in IDP leagues.
Source: St. Paul Pioneer Press

Cardinals agreed to terms with OLB/DE Travis LaBoy on a five-year contract, according to NFL Network.

He's going to play with his hand up in Arizona. LaBoy dealt with various injuries as a Titan, but consistently brought pressure when healthy. He had six sacks and forced four fumbles in 2007. LaBoy will compete with Bertrand Berry to be the Cards' starting right outside linebacker in training camp.

Wow! Antwaan Odom got a $29 million deal! Wasn't he a backup player for the Titans?

My thoughts also. Any loses on divisional rivals helps. Of course, the additions to the Jags may actually help. LOL

Bell was the one that really hurt. Both Laboy and Odom got ridiculous money considering their results since being drafted. Bell? I loved the line and its youth and felt it should be kept together - so this one was a stinger for me.

I heard on the radio the Titans are 44 million under the cap . They were wondering when Bud was planning on spending his money .

Bell was a big loss and I have no idea why the FO didn't try very hard to re-sign him. He's a great player and will be for a long time in this league.

Odom and LaBoy had wonderful contract years.

Default Re: Titans lose three more

Normally I would be quick to judge them and say they are going to suck bigtime next year (and I hope they do) but after last year I was sure they had a terrible offseason and they come back and make the playoffs. Color me confused when it comes to the flaming meatballs, I have no clue how this will pan out, I just want Mario to sack his highness at least 4 times next year on our way to pulling off the sweep.

I gotta admit that Bell taking off is a bit of a surprise, I thought your FO was going to resign him for sure. Not good news for you guys, but it is for us.

They could have used the transition tag and matched offers on two guys.

Exactly... They franchised a cancer like Fat Albert who played lights out. Why did he play lights out???....... Contract year!!

On another note, you may try to be less condescending. It will make your posts weigh more..

he's a cancer?? based on what? what has he done to poison his own locker room? sure gurode and schaub dont like him but how does that effect the tacks?
your post would weigh more without blatant bias and homerism

and the question still remains.. who should they have franchised instead of fat al?? the guys who played decent in their contract yrs or the guy who played lights out??

not to mention, by franchising him, that also makes this coming year a 'contract' year, if thats his only motive (which i doubt). so even by your own logic, franchising him was the right thing to do

the 'cost' of the franchise tag isnt what stopped the tacks resigning those other guys.. they have loads of cap room

I know that but transition you can place on two players versus franchise only on one player.
