  • LenDale White

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...e&type=fantasy

    Update: White tipped the scales at more than 260 pounds earlier this month while working out in Tennessee's off season program, underscoring the physical conditioning concerns that in part caused him to fall to the second round of the 2006 draft, Yahoo Sports reports.

    Recommendation: The Titans are looking to sign a free-agent running back to push White, who packed on 30 pounds this off season. "[LenDale] is no different than any other young player," said coach Jeff Fisher. "He needs the competition. You don't hand the job to him. The job has not been handed to him. Hopefully we'll have somebody in there to compete with him."

    Wow, he really is Jerome Bettis part 2.

      No, Jerome Bettis was in shape for most of his career. The last 2 years, he was unable to work out as strenuously as he wanted to because his body was breaking down. I'm surprised he was able to even play. They showed Bettis trying to get out of bed on TV one day. All of his joints were cracking and popping. He had to struggle for over a minute just to get sitting up. After that, he had a routine of stretching and such to get himself limber and able to even walk. Bettis took a huge pounding, and he's paying for it now.

        Anyways, back to LenDale White. It is disappointing to me that LenDale wouldn't sieze an opportunity here. If he reported in shape, he would likely be handed the bulk of the carries. Instead, he was completely out of shape. Not only out of football shape. Out of shape in general. That is pathetic. It's not like he's some highly paid player. He's a second round draft pick with no guaranteed contract, and he's playing for an extension/second contract now. This is not good for him career-wise.

            They can draft someone, bring back Brown, or make a trade if someone is available. They were going to bring in someone anyway. LenDale's laziness means that he is far more likely to get stiffer competition than he is to take the job. He's very stupid.

              The Titans, despite all their needs overall, really need to add a WR/RB in day 1 ... which isn't the ideal position to put themselves in. There's very little out there at RB in FA anymore, unless they decide to bring back Chris Brown (and Brown could have a more tempting situation in Buffalo ... ) or they make a trade. But they really need to upgrade the talent at the skill spots on offense to give Vince Young a better shot at succeeding.

                Corey Dillon is looking for work. Fisher was interviewed on NFL network at the owners meetings and he said someone would be in the backfield besides White come camp.

                  He was around 260 in the Rose Bowl and still outshined Reggie Bush.

                    And, that has what barring on their NFL careers how? Oh, wait it doesn't. Well, it does. Shows White has no motivation to better himself at the pro level. Go him.
                    The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                        Too bad, I was really expecting a breakout year from him. Shows no motivation on his part to seize the huge opportunity that sat right in front of his face. I hope he rides the bench again next season.

                        To the person who mentioned Corey Dillon - I think Dillon would be a fine fit in Tennessee. Domanick Williams (Davis) could be a possibility if he's healthy; Kevan Barlow could also work. They could bring back Chris Brown, too. I also expect they'll draft a RB at some point, even if they sign someone. A big sleeper who I would really like to see get a chance, maybe with the Titans, is LaBrandon Toefield. He was an absolute beast and a TD machine at LSU, but he is injury prone.

                          I'm a tad skeptical about this to be honest. I know he was never a workout freak but he seemed genuinely enthused about the starting role and Kevin Mawae made it clear he expects him to be ready. How privy are the media usually towards weigh ins like this? I mean it's not public info right?

                          You know what they say about "rumors" and "information" that comes out between January and draft day.

                            It's not too late for LenDale to get his act together this season and have a great year. It just would be easier for him to lock up a starting role if he were in shape now. Basically, the Titans might be overblowing the situation to motivate LenDale, or they're really pissed at him. Probably both. If he gets his crap together, he could still be a big impact player.
