    ...Arian Foster from Tennessee... according to no less an authority than the Associated Press:

    KNOXVILLE — Six former Tennessee players join defensive end Robert Ayers, the only drafted former Volunteer, with hopes of making it in the NFL as free agents.

    Colquitt and Taylor will try to find a roster spot with the Denver Broncos, Briscoe with the Washington Redskins, Willingham with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arian Foster with the Houston Oilersand Ramon Foster with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    As are the hundred or so fans who showed up to that "Keep the Oilers" rally, right before they left for Tennessee.

    Why would a running back sign with the Oilers? Their run-and-shoot won't give him an opportunity to display his skills.

    True. Barry Sanders never got to run in the Run-and-Shoot.
