Predictions

This segment is all about my predictions and why I think they will occur.

First, I predict that WR Derrick Mason (former Raven) will return and retire a Tennessee Titan.  He has been training with Titans all offseason and the fans/organization would love for him to return.

Second, I predict that WR Mike Sims-Walker (former Jaguar) will sign with the Tennessee Titans (sorry for two Titans predictions in a row).  He is friends with RB Chris Johnson and the Titans can use help at the WR position.

Third, I predict that the Dallas Cowboys will sign WR Braylon Edwards (former Jet).  The Cowboys need help at WR and with only Miles Austin and Dez Bryant, the ‘boys will be adding depth at this position.

Fourth, I predict that no matter how many free agents the Washington Redskins sign, they will still not make the playoffs.  They do not have the QB needed to lead the way and RB Larry Johnson is not the playing like his former self.

Fifth, I predict that the Buffalo Bills will have a worse season then they did a year ago.  They have lost some talent in the free agency and have not replaced anyone.

Matt Hasselbeck going to Tennessee

Today the Tennessee Titans agreed to a deal with QB Matt Hasselbeck.  When I first heard that the Titans were interested in signing him, I was skeptical.  As I did some research, I found an interesting piece of information.  Matt Hasselbeck knows QB Jake Locker from his days playing college football for Washington.  With a relationship already established, Jake Locker will be able to accept Matt Hasselbeck’s advice and counsel.  I believe that they will form a strong bond that will forever dictate Jake Locker’s career.  I also believe that Matt Hasselbeck is going to be a better mentor than Kerry Collins (former Titans QB).  Collins was established in the NFL and understood the game, but his performance level had significantly diminished and Locker needs to be under the wing of someone who can still play at a high level.  Only time will tell if this acquisition helps Locker to become a solid NFL QB.
