If your team is in need of a strong, physical and really reliable cornerback ready to make an instantaneous impact, you might want to learn a little about an All-Pro with the Tennessee Titans who’s set to enter 2012 NFL Free Agency.
Often labeled one of the dirtiest players in the NFL, Cortland Finnegan is currently one of the most preeminent players at his position and is expected to collect plenty of interest on the open market.
The 5-10, 188-pound cornerback was selected in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He racked up 75 tackles with one sack and interception last season and has only missed three games in six seasons with the Titans.
ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky, a former Tennessee beat reporter, believes the Titans will have a tough time bringing him back on a one-year deal or long-term contract due to his price tag. ”I don’t think the Titans want him at anything near what he’ll be able to command,” Kuharsky said.
Finnegan hasn’t heard from the Titans since the end of the...

IFL IS A-OK?
Randy Moss' recent announcement of his intentions to return to professional football have been noticed. Unfortunately, it was not by an NFL team, but by the Chicago Slaughters of the Indoor Football League, who offered him a contract.
Discussing Lions QB Matthew Stafford's 5,000-yard season, NFL analyst Marshall Faulk said that reaching that statistical benchmark "in the NFL right now is nothing."
Randy Moss says he's coming out of retirement.
"Your boy be back for the upcoming season," Moss proclaimed earlier this week on an internet video stream.
If it were only that simple.
Yes, he's one of the most prolific wide receivers in NFL history. Yes, his agent told profootballtalk.com on Tuesday that three teams have already inquired.
But none of this means...
A couple years ago, I wrote a piece parsing some of what Mike Reinfeldt said about his football philosophy and ideas when he was a relatively young general manager. Now, it's been Ruston Webster's turn to make the rounds, speaking first at a lunch at Lipscomb University and then on a conference call to season ticket holders (audio link, no transcript). I don't think Webster...
In just the past week, Randy Moss has taken to his Ustream channel to announce he’s returning to football, interact with his fans, and to show the world hair that he says “smells like sauerkraut”. This is all rather entertaining for us, but it reportedly isn’t very entertaining for one particular NFL executive. In fact, this particular executive believes that the Moss’...
Two Titans officials told Albert Breer that Randy Moss was a model teammate during his short stint with Tennessee in 2010 and that the former All-Pro wide receiver could fit well on a veteran team.
The last team Randy Moss played for in the NFL was Tennessee,
coached by new Rams coach Jeff Fisher, in 2010.
As the last head coach to put Randy Moss through the paces, Jeff Fisher would appear to be a reliable source to address the football resurrection of the future Hall of Famer.

There is speculation the Ravens have interest in receiver Randy Moss, and I have no problems with the team trying to pursue him as long as they don't mortgage away the future. I can't see the Ravens doing that because that's not general manager Ozzie Newsome's style. Even though Moss has been away from the game for a short time, he's still probably one of the...
