Turner, Titans, talking

Usually, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and there’s definitely smoke on the Michael Turner front. It certainly appears the Chargers are willing to let Turner go, perhaps for less than the 1st and 3rd round tender that has been applied to LT’s backup.

There are three teams interested in Turner: the Bills, Titans, and Packers. I would love for him to go to the Titans; it would be a perfect fit. Head coach Jeff Fisher loves to pound the rock as much as anyone, and a strong running game would make a difference in the development of QB Vince Young. The threat of Young would also help Turner, since you really can’t focus on a back when Vince Young is on the field.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
