Teammates of the week: Alterraun Verner and Jason McCourty

New, comment

ATV and Jason McCourty have developed into one of the best cornerback tandems in the league.

The Titans front office made a huge mistake this offseason by not working out a contract extension with Alterraun Verner. Instead, the defensive coaches spent all offseason trying to replace him. Now ATV is having a career year. That asking price has probably doubled.

The Titans were smart with Jason McCourty and locked him up early. He has rewarded them with a couple of really solid seasons.

The Titans are a linebacker or two away from having a defense like they did back when they are good. Corners are typically the toughest piece of the puzzle to find. The Titans have two shutdown corners.
