    Well you still have consider Mcnair. He is the last active originally drafted Houston Oiler.

    In my mind.
    Jon Runyan counts as a Houston Oiler.

    I'm not so sure about that. I would not be surprised if there were still a few active ex-Oilers on other teams rosters. Maybe not starters but I'd be really surprised to see that McNair was the last. Wasn't Michael Barrow around just last season?

    Yup, Runyon is still active. Barrow was DL'd last season with Dallas. I think he's a free agent. Gary Walker hasn't signed but he was here as well.

    Runyon and McNair may be the last two on rosters as of now. Can't think of anyone else.

    But I meant it as the last Oiler to be with the Oiler/Titans franchise. McNair has moved on to another team. Runyon, Walker, and Barrow are elsewhere other than Houston/Tennessee.

    Hopkins has been w/ the Oilers/Titans his whole career.

    I thought Walker was an Oiler as well?

    When Jeff Fisher is fired and Bud Adams dies, then the Titans will lose it's connection with Houston.

    John Runyan is on the Eagles roster. McNair will probably play 2-3 more seasons. Michael Barrow and Gary Walker might play this year. Still a few more years until they've all retired.
