Titans lose out on Turner, Williams

The Tennessee Titans came up empty in the trade market on draft day, whiffing on both San Diego running back Michael Turner and Detroit wide receiver Mike Williams.

Turner, a restricted free agent, had been a target of the Titans for several weeks, but San Diego general manager A.J. Smith would not budge in his demands to acquire a first-round pick either in 2007 or 2008 for LaDainian Tomlinson's backup.

"It became obvious to us that they didn't want to move him because they upped the ante. At one piont early in the round, they actually wanted more," Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. "It became obvious that they weren't willing to move him."

Speculation that Turner could be moved either to Tennessee, Buffalo or Green Bay heated up Thursday when Turner signed the one-year tender offer for $2.35 million, a necessary step in order to trade a player.

As for Williams, the Lions
