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 DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
