    He was a very good CB on New England. Tough 2018 season. But it happens.

    He is better than Artie Burns.

    No he is not worth it. New England players are very suspect in my opinion. Better off attempting to fix that in the draft.

    Honestly I'd wait to see what Patrick Peterson decides and then what happens with Dennard in Cincinnati when the coaching changes shake out.

    Pat will want too much and we have many holes to fill

    True enough but should he gain release or force a trade I would hope that the team did due diligence he is not a player to be passed up and have Ross Cockrell again.

    Sensabaugh is better then Burns. Chew on that. They will have to dig deep to match someone next to Haden. I don't trust Tomlin and Colbert to find a corner in the draft.

    Why this discussion? Is there some report of Butler being cut, or of the Titans trying to trade him? They would take a $5 million+ cap hit in 2019 doing either.

    Dennard never lived up to his billing in Cincy, pass.

    Is he an upgrade over Sensabaugh, Burns and Sutton?

    My friend we need more than Malcom Butler, although the CB is a high priority
    I am not so sure he is that impactful. Of course this is just my opinion. And why are the Titans
    giving up on him?

    I'm not all for overpaying an aging veteran at a position that excels with youth.

    If at all possible, I'd be trading up to grab Greedy Williams.

    Might not be possible as most consider him top 5 talent.

    He's exactly what this defense needs IMO though.

    He's solid but no. I never thought he was an elite corner. Product of playing for belichick.

    Butler struggled with the Titans after getting that big FA contract, no thanks.

    I thought they had plenty of money or were you just venting

    Even if they do have the money, I'm not spending it on Dennard.

    We need to look closely at Tampa Bay, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Miami, Denver, Arizona, and Green Bay and see who we can purge from their rosters. New coaches will want new players, their players. Jon Gruden anyone?

    No Malcolm Butler. We crossed that bridge last off season. But since we are playing the “sign him” game let’s give Fournette a closer look. The guy has one foot out the Jaguars door and they seem to be receptive to getting rid of him. There’s plenty left in that tank and I think he would be a great fit with the Steelers

    I think the Steelers are drowning in drama already. Why add another guy with disciplinary issues?

    I'd love to see us grab Gareon Conley from the Raiders. Low mileage with and a fresh start from the Gruden/Davis circus.
