Marion Barber a Titan in 08?

Posted February 18, 2008
Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher hints at a possible future running back. During an interview with a local TV station Coach Fisher spoke on many topics one being the running back. He spoke about possible backs they would draft but went on to say that if he had a chance to sign Marion Barber of the Dallas Cowboys he would. He said that Marion is a restricted free agent this year and since Dallas has yet to come to an agreement with him yet he believes that Dallas will put a 1st and 3rd round tender on him. Jeff went on to say that in his eyes it would be well worth the 1st and 3rd round picks. He says when drafting you have a fifty fifty shot your player will make the team and the odds that player will make a pro bowl team is even more unlikely, So if you have a chance to pick up a pro bowl back for a first and third then you take it. "I hope they do give him the tender. If they do the good news is they will have two more picks this year." Coach Fisher said as he laughed. I do believe Jerry wants someone to take Barber. I think he wants McFadden badly but knows fans will be very upset if he were to trade Barber. So what do you do? Well i'll tell ya what I would do. I give Barber a tender praying that someone picks him up. If the team that takes him doesn't have a high enough pick to grab McFadden I would trade two of the three picks and a few "Parcells Guys" to Miami. Maybe a player like Anthony Fasano someone that Bill was very high on in his cowboys days and you trade with Miami. I am sure there is already a deal in place thus the reason Bill was able to raid the Cowboys coaching and recruiting staff without a blink from Jerry. So now you have McFadden and a later round pick. Then you take that other first and a player like Patrick Crayton to buy yourself a player like Roy Williams of Detroit or Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona. Then you hit the free agent market and get yourself a good #3 wide out like Bernard Berrian who is a free agent. You could then trade a 2nd day pick to the very team that "Stole" your running back to pick up a certain troubled yet very talented corner back Adam "Pacman" Jones. Then Dallas is happy and we are happy. They will have all their holes filled and we will finally be rid of Pacman and we will also have a franchise running back. As a cowboy fan this sounds good to me but they can keep Pacman...
