According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, the Titans don’t plan on using the franchise tag on any players this offseason.
So why not use the franchise tag on cornerback Alterraun Verner? It would cost the Titans roughly $11.2 million, and that’s a hefty price tag on a one-year deal, especially since the Titans are paying Jason McCourty an average of $8.608 million per year.
The Titans are expected to let Verner test the market. I would be surprised if he returns to Tennessee.
