Tennessee Titans Daily Links: Pay For Pain Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans are admitting that they had an illegal system in place for paying players extra payments for big plays, but swear it had nothing to do with trying to injure anyone. Former Titans safety Blaine Bishop directly addressed the issue, denying that there were ever incentives to hurt opponents, and Lance Shulters said that any bounty systems under Jim Schwartz were completely player-driven. You know what that sounds like? What happens in every other locker room in the NFL. Plus, if these illegal bonuses are supposed to motivate dirty plays, how big must the payouts be in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New England and New York (Jets)? Those teams have been much, much dirtier than any of Gregg Williams' defenses over the past decade.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans dropping the franchise tag on Michael Griffin pretty much assures that Cortland Finnegan is gone. Once he tries out free agency, he won't come back even if we beat his other offers. It's a pride thing with these guys. We've seen this happen over and over, and I expect Cortland to be no different.
