Cortland Finnegan is going to be the most sought after of the guys that are set to become free agents from the 2011 Titans. JR Lind of the Nashville Scene reported this morning that Finnegan has sold a home he owned in Bellevue (a suburb of Nashville), but points out that he still owns a house in Nashville.

This doesn't really mean anything without the proper context, but the more I read and hear, the more I believe that Finnegan has played his last game with the Titans. The front office seems to be willing to let him test the free agent market, and there is no shot he comes back if he does that because they are not going to match a big offer.

A lot of people are already speculating that he could end up with either Jim Scwhartz in Detroit or Jeff Fisher in St. Louis. The Detroit scenario actually makes a lot of sense because they are desperate for a quality corner back.

I am OK with the decision not to give him an expensive long-term deal, but I question the decision not to franchise him. They are not going to franchise anyone else, and there is a huge drop-off from corner #2 to corner #3 if Alterraun Verner moves up to #2. That is a big deal because you need three corners to be successful in today's NFL.
