Football Outsiders ranks Michael Griffin as one of the three worst uses of the franchise tag

+

Rivers McCown of Football Outsiders ranks Michael Griffin as one of the three worst uses of the franchise tag: "The decision not to franchise Cortland Finnegan, who led all starting cornerbacks in our game charting project in yards per attempt allowed at 4.3, is silly on its face. To franchise one of the most inconsistent safeties in the NFL instead makes it ludicrous. Griffin may have multiple Pro Bowl appearances, but he's also been completely unreliable in the deep safety role over the course of his career. The fact that the safety franchise tender is only $6.2 million means that the Titans aren't exactly overpaying for Griffin's services, but to let Finnegan hit unrestricted free agency without a concrete offer is a little baffling given their respective value to the team." ***It's part of the paid insider, but they are saying we should have used the franchise tag on C.Finn... clearly the sides are far apart on whether or not either of them wants to stay on the Titans. I don't think it was a money thing anymore, I think the FO has moved on from ol' Finny.
