Titans under no pressure to pick starting corner

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans are looking for Coty Sensabaugh and Blidi Wreh-Wilson to replace departed Pro Bowl cornerback Alterraun Verner, and coach Ken Whisenhunt sees no reason to make a decision just yet. And he isn't. ''The competition's still going,'' Whisenhunt said Thursday. The Titans visit Atlanta on Saturday night, and Sensabaugh...

Tennessee Titans Blidi Wreh-Wilson wants to help defense by any means necessary

Titans primed for key cornerback battles in Verner's absence

NASVHILLE, Tenn. -- Just days into the Titans' first minicamp of 2014, and the respective battles at cornerback are already taking shape. Gone to Tampa Bay, via free agency, is Alterraun Verner, who made the Pro Bowl with the Titans last season. He parlayed that success into a four-year deal, worth $27.75 million, with the Bucs. That leaves a trio of returnees -- fourth-year...

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...

The Cornerback The Vikings Have to Target In Free Agency

Make no mistake about it, the Minnesota Vikings secondary was horrendous in 2013. The team gave up and 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 he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2010, Verner has quietly has been...

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.

There are 15 players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next month. Here’s my...

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.
