Chris Johnson
 
Now that Fitz has blown up the bar set for players with his 8 year 120 million deal and Tenn being very far apart with CJ2K. Should Tampa come in and try to pull a trade off? Like a 1st and 3rd? With Freeman, Blount, CJ, K2, Williams and Benn we could have one of if not the best O's in football. We have the money to sign him. Could be like when the Rams traded for Faulk, he took that O to a whole new world.

I know it's a dream... but hey its worth talking about..

First off, CJ is borderline ******** and a cancer to a team. He is extremely talented but despite his talent, the Titans have been no better than average since his arrival (overall). He is too selflish to put on a team full of guys that work together.

As for the comparison with Faulk... the Colts believed they were getting a better back, a back more versatile for their offense, and nearly gave Faulk away for 2nd and 5th round picks. Considering what CJ would want in free market, his trade value is probably signficantly less than even Faulk's was but I don't expect the Titans to give CJ away like the Colts did despite the fact that if he can get $13 mil a season, then that is his free market value... not $13 mil a season AND a #1 pick... this is why I don't understand why teams trade for players then sign them to huge deals...it's terrible business.

Agreed. Chris Johnson is an explosive back, but I think him being a guy last year that had to carry the load, really struggled in that department and honestly, you don't pay RBs 13 mil a year anymore. Adrian Peterson is still hands down the best RB in this league and he has been a complete professional about it.

Haha agreed. Who would pay a 1st round pick for a RB and give him 13 mil a year? Geez. Does anyone not know our front office?
