Tennessee Titans seek value at cornerback

There’s no guarantee what position the Tennessee Titans will select with the No. 11 overall pick in the draft. If history has proven anything, it’s that the Titans actually draft better value at cornerback later in the draft than early. Example 1A and 1B of that are Alterraun Verner (4th round ) and Jason McCourty (6th round). Tennessee’s biggest blunder was selecting Pacman...

Titans hope former Broncos provide kick

When the Titans began their search for pieces on a changing defense, they played the daily double in Denver. They hope signing the two free agents will pay off in the locker room as well as on the field under new defensive coordinator Ray Horton. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard and defensive end/linebacker Shaun Phillips, teammates last season with the AFC champion Broncos, have been...

Alterraun Verner: Patriots Are ‘Definitely A Possibility’ In Free Agency

New England Patriots captain Devin McCourty is doing his part to recruit players to join his secondary. Free agent cornerback Alterraun Verner told Mad Dog Sports Radio that “(New England) is definitely a possibility” in free agency and that “(Jason McCourty’s) brother has been lobbying for me (to join Patriots).” Jason McCourty played with Verner on the Tennessee Titans...

Minnesota needs to drop big money on a big time defensive back!

Make no mistake about it, the Minnesota Vikings secondary was horrendous in 2013. The team gave up an average of 287 passing yards a game and ranked 29th in pass defense. While there are a number of cornerbacks the Vikings could target during free agency, their choice should be Alterraun Verner. Ever since the Tennessee Titans drafted him in 2010, Verner has quietly been one of...

Jason McCourty trying to sell Pollard and Verner on staying with Titans

We’re a little bit more than a week away from the start of free agency, which means that there’s a lot for pending free agents, their agents and front offices to do in the coming days. Titans cornerback Jason McCourty doesn’t fall into any of those groups, but he’s also going to be busy. McCourty has taken on the job of lobbying cornerback Alterraun Verner and safety Bernard...

Which free agents should Titans try to re-sign?

The Titans still have plenty of time to sign their free agents before the new NFL year begins on March 11. In many cases, however, they will let players walk while reshaping the roster under new coach Ken Whisenhunt. Other players could hit the market to gauge their value before re-signing. There are 15 players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next month. Here’s my...

Report: Titans don’t plan on using their franchise tag

var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean,  the Titans don’t plan on using the franchise tag on any players this offseason. So why not use the franchise tag on cornerback Alterraun Verner? It would cost the Titans roughly $11.2 million, and that’s a hefty price tag on a one-year deal...

Jason McCourty Pushes Himself to the Limit

By Chrissy Carew Some of the circumstances of Jason McCourty’s childhood might seem like disadvantages. His father died when he was just three years old. His mother faced a tall task, raising Jason and his twin brother Devin on her own; and a car accident when the boys were young left her disabled due to knee injuries. Yet Jason says from his young perspective, everything was ideal...

NFL Week 10 Round-Up: It’s one odd year of football

This is one odd season: 2013 may be the oddest year of football I have ever experienced. For starters, I don’t think you can honestly say there’s even one elite team in the NFL. Take a peak at the teams with the best records; teams such as the Broncos, Chiefs, Patriots, Colts, Saints, and Seahawks. Every single team has some glaring flaws. Furthermore, let’s be honest: This...

Tennessee Titans: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#14)

Last week: 14 (+0) Record: 3-4 The Titans brought back Jake Locker this week surprisingly, even though he was not supposed to return until after their week 8 bye. That wasn’t a great idea as Locker didn’t look comfortable. His stats were fine, as he completed 25 of 41 for 326 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception, but he didn’t play that well in a 31-17 loss. It would have...

WATCH: McCourty takes badly botched Seahawks FG for TD

There is no real way to describe this play. The Seahawks have their backup holder and kicker out for a field goal attempt, they dropped the snap and cue the clown music. It all resulted in Jason McCourty returning the ball for a touchdown. Of course he hit the Terio because what else could you do after a crazy play like that.
