However, Wyatt mentions that doing so “could prove to be too expensive,” and the franchise tag is unlikely to be an option for Tennessee.
- Wyatt adds that there is still plenty of work to be done in order for Verner to back in Tennessee next season.
- Wyatt also mentions that the franchise tag still is not expected to be an option for the Titans.
Titans GM Ruston Webster said that he has already been i contact with Verner’s agent “and we’ll continue to talk.”
The Rams and Vikings have both been floated as possible options for Verner in free agency, depending of course on what happens with the Titans.
Verner, 25, is in great position to secure a solid contract on the open market as he’s coming off of a Pro Bowl season for the Titans. He finished the year with 57 tackles, five interceptions including one for a touchdown, two fumble recoveries and 23 passes defensed.
Pro Football Focus has Verner rated as the No. 12 cornerback in the league this season. We have him listed as the No. 6 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
