If I were to take him on a team, I'd use him like Brad Smith. WR, wildcat QB, RB and KR. If that's stupid, then i wouldn't take him at all.

Bud Adams might have taken his time picking between Vince Young and Jeff Fisher, but Vince Young's disappointing Titans career over to bring Fisher back, announcing Friday that Fisher would return for 2011.
"Jeff has meant a great deal to this franchise and we have reached some incredible heights under his leadership," Adams said in a statement released by the team. "Obviously I have very high expectations for our football team and want to deliver a championship to our fans. Jeff understands this and shares my expectations. The results of his leadership have been some very good football teams and I believe he will get us back to an elite level."
This isn't that big a surprise -- Fisher has just one year left on his contract and it makes sense for both sides to keep the continuity in Tennessee rolling.
If Fisher left, he wouldn't have as many job opportunities open as he might have a few weeks ago (Houston, Dallas are no longer open coaching gigs) and if Adams fired Fisher, he'd run the risk of bringing in a new coach who might not be able to begin working with the team until after labor negotiations were resolved.
He'd also be paying a pair of coaches even though there's no guarantee of football in 2011 quite yet.
