VOLEK UPDATE: Billy Volek might want to pay close attention to the plays he has been running on scout team for the Chargers this week.

Sources confirm the Chargers still have interest in obtaining Volek and have inquired about him in a trade. However, the Titans currently are unwilling to part with him. The Kansas City Chiefs have also inquired about Volek. Their starter, Trent Green, is out after a concussion Sunday that landed him in the hospital for two days.

Negotiations could heat up in the next couple of days, though the Titans might wait until after Sunday’s game to pull the trigger on any sort of deal with San Diego.

The Chargers could use a backup to Philip Rivers. They are currently carrying only two quarterbacks with rookie Charlie Whitehurst at No. 2. San Diego also has only 52 players on its roster at present.

Efforts to reach Titans general manager Floyd Reese were unsuccessful Wednesday.

I just hope we don't give up too much for a career backup.

I think you always have to inquire about a player a division rival is trying to acquire in a trade. You may get a deal you can't pass up or you may drive the price up for your rival.

That certainly has always been CP's mantra. I don't see anything more than that in this discussion. I think Trent comes back week4. We go with Huard @Denver, in a game we probably would have come up short anyway.

If the Chiefs do make this move I think it signals that Green might not be coming back this year and might hang em up. Volek would then serve as the bridge between Green and Croyle.

Probably just driving up the price on Marty but you never know.

This QB situation will either get far worse or Green will come back in a couple of weeks. Carl Peterson said they were not looking for another QB. This may be a sign of worse things to come unfortunately. I hope Trent can bounce back but head injuries are tricky sometimes.

The Chiefs must be looking for a quarterback. Any time Peterson opens up his yap, i assume the opposite of what he says is the truth. He would make a horrible poker player, not to mention GM.

Huard will be prepared with the number of snaps he will take with the Starters this week. He is just as good, if not better than Volek. Gochiefs is right, Huard will do fine.

I think Volek is a great option.

Croyle needs time to develope, I think Volek would fit well in KC with or with out Trent Green.

We just need to not over pay. Its clear that Tenn doesn't want him, so don't over pay. Conditional 5th rounder or maybe a player.

This makes me think Trent is finished or at least will definitely not be back next year.

How many draft picks do we even have left for next year? It seems like we've already traded several of them.

Or, how about Trent will be back in 3 weeks or so....AND we simply need a real backup, and not two THIRD stringers? :(

How did Volek lose the starting gig to Kerry Collins?

As for the Chiefs being interested in Volek I think that:

1. Volek's agent is trying to get the Chargers to bite and trying to fabricate a bidding war. (85% likelihood).

2. Green is going to be out a significant amount of time. (10% likelihood).

1 +2 being true - 5%.

Honestly I hope Trent Retires. Why come back and ruin your career with this Asshat of a coach? No way.

Stay home, drink wine with Vermiel and talk about the stats you all piled up in KC. Enjoy the good times and forget the dark ages that are upon us fans now.

I can't believe more teams in the NFL don't go with just 2 QB's on the active roster. I wonder how many times in the history of the NFL, 2 QB's have went down in the same game? I would rather save the extra spot for a DL, or special teams stud.

Volek update
Maybe Billy Volek should just pack an extra bag.

Sources said the Chargers are offering the Titans a sixth-round pick for Volek, and also indicated that the deal could be done next week.

Volek, in his seventh season, all with Tennessee, has an 86.9 passer rating in 24 games (10 starts). He began training camp as the Titans' No. 1 quarterback but was demoted to No. 3 after the team signed Kerry Collins late last month. The Chargers have rookie quarterback Charlie Whitehurst backing up Philip Rivers.

The Chargers could have competition from within their division for Volek, as the Kansas City Chiefs have inquired about him as insurance after Trent Green was injured in the season opener.

A 6th round draft pick?! Holy crap. That's a steal and a half. You could spend 5 years drafting quarterbacks with first round picks and not necessarily find one as good.

Volek is easily worth a sixth rounder.

That would be my guess....After his father died unexpectingly last year he has probably gained new perspective on life and less likely to push the envelope...Also at this point in his career he has done everything but win a Super Bowl ring and unless a real Super Bowl contender were to lose their QB to season ending injury he knows that nobody is likely to trade for him at this point. He would be foolish to risk further serious injury going through the motions trying to boost Herm Average from a 3 win season to a 6 win season. Not worth it.

Actually, acquiring a QB after the 2nd week of the season says they aren't prepared. They're taking steps to rectify that, but being reactive at this point is the antithesis of "prepared".

As for the Chiefs, they were FULLY prepared for Green getting injured. Were they properly prepared? Hindsight says no. But that doesn't mean that they didn't have a plan in place.

Predarat

It would have happened sooner but the Titans didn't want him to fork over his knoledge on their three page playbook. I think everyone has it anyways at least thats how it seems from watching their games.
