Last year, new defensive coordinator Jerry Gray gave that role to Cortland Finnegan. But with Finnegan defecting as a free agent to the St. Louis Rams, Verner is poised to reclaim that role, beginning with OTA work. It is one he embraces.TitanInsider.com. “I would love to be that guy that Cortland was last year, but wherever they put me, I'm gonna play.”
It will mean plenty of time on the field for Verner, who will team with Jason McCourty on the outside on early downs, meaning that someone from the ranks of Ryan Mouton, Chris Hawkins, Tommie Campbell and rookie Coty Sensabaugh will play the outside spot in the nickel package or Tennessee.
