    Titans step up efforts to land Turner, Williams

    By JIM WYATT
    Staff Writer

    On the eve of the NFL Draft, the Titans are working to acquire Chargers running back Michael Turner and Lions wide receiver Mike Williams.

    The moves could alter the team’s direction in the draft.

    On Friday, the Titans and Chargers continued to discuss a trade involving Turner, who rushed for 502 yards and two touchdowns as the back-up to NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson.


    ESPN reported the Chargers are prepared to trade Turner after receiving an acceptable contract offer from another team. According to the report, an unidentified team offered the Chargers a first-round pick in the 2008 draft, and San Diego is willing to accept the deal.

    The Titans, Bills and Packers are among the teams who've expressed an interest in Turner, although Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith has said other teams are also interested.

    The Titans did not offer a first-round pick in next year's draft, according to sources familiar with the trade talks, but have discussed other options including a swap of first round picks in this year’s draft. The Titans are scheduled to pick 19th overall, the Chargers 30th.

    Another trade scenario would involve the Titans giving up a second-round pick in this year’s draft, along with further compensation either in this year’s draft or in next year’s draft.

    Titans officials could not immediately be reached for comment on Friday. Agent Bus Cook, who represents Turner, said no one had talked to him about a deal.

    “If it's true, somebody has to call me to tell me about it,’’ Cook said. “I don’t have a clue, unless it's the Titans, but I don't know. They haven't called me about it.’’

    On Thursday, Turner signed his tender with the Chargers, a required step for a trade to go through (players have to be signed and under contract in order to be traded).

    Also on Thursday, Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt said contract talks with Cook had reached a point where the two sides could reach an agreement pretty quickly.

    As for Williams, the Titans and Lions have discussed trade options. A first-round pick by the Lions in 2005 out of USC, he caught eight passes for 99 yards last season.

    The Lions are in the mix to draft Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson with the No. 2 pick

                      Hmm.. i guess if we get these two guys we could wait till round two and take steve smith, sidney rice or maybe even jarrett if he were to fall to us. I think a change of scenery and putting mike williams with chow and an exciting QB might get him to wake up and work harder.

                        NFL Network is apparently reporting Mike is a Titan.

                        Hopefully for nothing more than a 5th. Decent pickup IMO, i.e. back with Chow.

                          i like the idea of getting jarrett, 2 USC receivers with their old coach

                          nice

                          but i love meachem
