Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan has won the team's Walter Payton Man of the Year award for the past two years. Since being selected seventh in the 2006 draft out of Samford University, he has 472 tackles, 14 interceptions, six sacks and one visit to the Pro Bowl. Now he may be leaving town.
The Tennessean reports that "there's been no progress in negotiations" on a new contract for the 28-year-old and he's put his house up for sale as he is "still convinced he won't be back with the Titans for 2012."
Agent Terry Watson and team execs are supposed to meet up at the NFL combine later this week to discuss the contract further. "It is more of a wait-and-see situation, depending on how the conversation goes when we do meet," Watson said Monday, according to the Tennessean. "It is up to the Titans to be able to show Cortland what their mindset is, where things are. And the only way that can be done is through the use of numbers composed in a contract of some sort, and that hasn't happened to this point."
