    Re: LB Tracy White resigned

    yea...I've got nothing against this signing. We had to fill a spot and LB's can usually participate on special teams, but if there are any safeties out there at all we need to look at them.

    In the offseason there was a thread about whom we should sign. My first guy was Chris Hope from Pittsburgh. He went to Tennessee. Guess who leads the NFL in tackles right now? Damn he would have looked good in Green and Gold.

    I agree Chris Hope would of looked good in Green and Gold, On the signing of White I was just wondering if TT was going to make another move, either let someone else go or pickup someone else up.

    It depends where the tackles are made. Dawkins is usually one of the top taclers for Philly. Troy Pala.... is usually a top tackler for Pittsburgh.

    You are right that it's not necessarily a good thing, but there's no question that Hope would have been much better than Manuel. Right now it would be very nice to have our safeties making more of an impact.

    BTW, White was waived a couple weeks ago to make room for Robinson. Hodge is injured right now and we need another backup LB, therefore White was resigned. No big deal and I'm very glad he was still available.

    It was a 6 year contract, and Hope was seeking around the 4 million dollar per year mark.

    I'd take a stab in the dark and say it was around a 6 year - 30 million dollar package.

    I don't know, but here's a link to some cap info for Tenn:
    http://www.titanscentral.net/2006SALARYCAP.html

    According to the link, Hope's cap number for this season is $1.5 million.

    Resigned means he quit. Re-signed means he's got a new contract.

    Hodge is doubtful for Sunday; maybe that's why
