Patrick Ramsey is finally a Titan. Chris Simms has been a Bronco. The potential Titans/Broncos trade that many people around here were talking about for days didn’t happen (and wasn’t going to happen), but at least the secondary swap finally got done. No big surprise there on either front.
Rejoice that at least we don’t have to worry about the Cutler conversations anymore now that he’s in Chicago. Seriously, Cutler wasn’t coming here so there wasn’t much reason to continue talking about him “coming back home,” especially considering that roughly 8% of Tennesseans are actually Vandy fans.
Signing Ramsey only further solidifies the uneasiness the organization feels with Vince Young. While there is still time for him, this is just the latest demotion/hit on his descent down. The spiral may be nearing complete.
VY is still the “#2 QB”, but if Kerry Collins were to miss any time next season, we’ll see who comes in. Let’s not go and put the #10 jersey in the Goodwill bag just yet, but we may not be that far away (we really should’ve saved that one for a long article about VY that Kellen and I write at some point).
Faggins signs with Titans
Former Texans CB DeMarcus Faggins (pronounced FAY-gins) has signed a two year deal with the Titans. He should serve as the third cornerback for the Titans and add some depth at the position to the position in the short term. Faggins was a 6th round pick out of Kansas State for Houston in 2002. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
This doesn’t really mean much for the Titans as far as need at the position, though. There is a chance that he won’t even make it out of training camp. They will still be targeting Nick Harper’s eventual replacement in the draft, and quite possibly in the first round.
Sorry we didn’t get this news to you guys earlier. “Big Brother” (FanSided) has been in the process of switching servers for the last few days, and we were one of the victims of the transfer. The good news is that the site (as well as all of the others in our vast network) should be running smoother than ever. Thanks to the Best Bros. from the A.A. for pulling off the move. Looks great dooods!
Before we let you run, here are our Final Four picks:
Nick – UConn beats Michigan State, North Carolina beats Villanova. Tyler Hansbrough and the Tarheels beat Jim Calhoun’s Huskies (and his seven figure salary) to cut down the nets on Monday night. You can stop reading now because whatever Kellen says is just straight nonsense.
Kellen – MICHIGAN STATE beats Connecticut, VILLANOVA beats North Carolina (for me to win any money). In the real world, Connecticut beats North Carolina in the first finals to feature two coaches that have already won a national championship since 2001 (Lute Olsen, Coach K).
