So... he takes a *massive* pay cut to play for the Titans... who may be looking to the draft for a long-term QB solution. Why am I sensing an "Agree to the trade and take a massive pay cut, or get cut and see what a team will offer you" deal?

This reminds me of a story Jim Leyland used to tell about his days in the minor leagues. He was called into the managers office and informed that he had been traded. He asked "Well, Skipper, I have two questions. What did you get for me, and did it help the team"?  The manager replied "We didn't get anything for you, and yes, it helped the team".

I've read that baseball is flirting with the idea of a 'starter' (as opposed to starting) pitcher: Someone to go through the lineup once, maybe twice before switching to a mid innings pitcher.  (Something that has bugged me 40yrs).

Granted there's a much shorter season, less tolerance for bombing a game by falling behind quickly, but I've also wondered why this isn't a 'thing' in the NFL:

Not all teams are created equal, and shuffling/working alternates in the first quarter, maybe resting older, rookie, or more fragile QBs to develop talent and keep the veterans fresher at the end of the game/season... just seems like the thing to do.

Yes playoff push, butts in seats to see stars, yada yada. But I'm talking about the other alsowik teams...

Hell, If Tannerhill wasn't turning the ball over once/twice a quarter, I'd let him start, and bring in Mariota a few drives later; maybe rinse/repeat after the half unless the offense is in rhythm.

Then at least if the poor bastage gets hurt, the coaches have a general idea of what to expect from the backup other than team drills/mop up time after getting their asses kicked which is crap to use for planning.
