After all of the rumors regarding teams placing the franchise tag on players just to retain them, we finally have a team that is not willing to overpay to just keep their own free agents.
According to ESPN.com, the Titans might be willing to let one of their top defensive players walk instead of paying an inflated price.
Cornerback Cortland Finnegan — I don’t think the Titans want him at anything near what he’ll be able to command.
Finnegan will be one of the top corners in a deep corner class on the open market.
Although the Lions have been linked to Finnegan because of the connection with head coach Jim Schwartz, the Lions have serious salary cap issues to deal with. Expect the Buccaneers, Rams, and Bengals to be the major players.
