Finnegan - soon to be best Titan/Oiler CB ever - Gets Contract Extension

Today, the Titans were smart.

The extended Cortland Finnegan through 2011.

This was a must do move, IMO.  I'm glad we used our cap space on extending our current group of core players.  Finnegan is clearly one of them.

He is going to become, IMO, the best CB ever to wear Ttian/Oiler jersey.  Teams will not want to throw his way this year.

The deal is "worth roughly $17 million over the next four seasons, and it includes roughly $8.5 million in guaranteed money. He’ll receive a $6 million signing bonus, and a $500,000 base salary for 2008." (via Tennessean)

The 7th round pick was set to make ~445K this year.

Last year, Finnegan played so well, that he led the team in money given to players that play better than their conrtracts.

Great Job Titans!

Now just go find a CB to play next to him that isn't named Reynaldo Hill or has multiple concussions.

Oh ya, next up (IMO).....extending Fuller.
