View Full Version : Titans eyeing Rice

Intriguing for us, to say the least. His prime might be past him, but I think he's got some left in the tank and even a lesser, older Simeon Rice will provide the Titans pass rush with a boost.

Might not be a bad signing, but if you ask me, I'd rather use our cap space to lock up some of our young guys than overpay for a one trick pony that's getting up there in age.
He would help though. I don't expect LaBoy or Odom to hold up a full season, and behind them we have nothing.

It appears that we're still eyeing him... (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors/post/Rice-headed-to-Tennessee-;_ylt=AhjF4ESMmPCkgVSXE8zbjxSa2bYF?urn=nfl,42214)
Not to be crude, but he must be asking for an ass-load of money...

I don't think Rice would be a bad signing (per se); but I'd much rather see the Titans try to find a good 2-down DE that can be solid against the run.
IMO, we've already got pass-rushing DEs opposite KVB with Laboy & rookie Jacob Ford. Right now, the only two-down type DE that we have (other than KVB...who plays all the time anyway) is Odom. Even if Odom plays well, he hasn't shown that he can last an entire season -- so I wish they could find another similar type player to be in a rotation with Odom.
