2012 NFL Free Agents: Cortland Finnegan Not Optimistic About Returning To Titans

Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan could be the top cornerback on the free agent market in 2012 if his current team opts to let him walk. The Titans' plans for the 28-year old cornerback are still unknown. Finnegan himself believes that the team will let him walk, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Finnegan was a seventh-round pick in 2006 whose rookie season was good enough to earn him a $15.4 million extension the year after that.

The Titans say that they have yet to make any determinations about Finnegan's future. He could get the franchise tag, which would exceed $10 million for one season, and the report says that the Titans have the financial flexibility to do that.

The Titans and Finnegan talked contract prior to the season, but it ended with nothing more than acrimony. At one point Finnegan walked out of camp.

Finnegan's on-field antics have earned him some negative attention, including an on-going battle with Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson that has looked more like something out of a hockey rivalry at times. Finnegan would likely be a luxury the Rams can't afford and lower on the priority list than other positions.
