I have never wanted the Titans to re-sign a player more than I want them to sign Alterraun Verner. With that being said, I don't disagree with the decision to not use the franchise tag on him- if that is what ultimately happens. ATV is a very, very good corner, but he isn't a top-5 corner in the league.

And don't even start with using either of those tags on Bernard Pollard. He was solid last season, but could only get a 1-year deal on the market. I am sure the Titans want to bring him back, but they should be able to do it a lot cheaper than either tag number.

However, there is absolutely no reason that the Titans couldn't work out a long-term deal that makes sense for both sides. I don't have any inside information, but I really think that Verner would stay for less money than he can get on the open market. He seems to really love playing in Nashville for the Titans.
