The Titans lost one stud cornerback this offseason and they apparently do not want the same thing to happen next offseason. The Titans have entered extension talks with Jason McCourty, who will become the Titans’ #1 cornerback in 2012 after the loss of Cortland Finnegan. A 6th round pick in 2009, McCourty has well exceeded his draft range.
As the Titans #2 cornerback last season, McCourty graded out as ProFootballFocus’ 7th ranked cornerback allowing 71 completions on 117 attempts (60.7%) for 802 yards (6.9 YPA), 1 touchdown, 2 interceptions, and 10 deflections. He also graded out as the league’s best cornerback against the run, with 93 solo tackles and 34 stops, both most at his position. He’s owed 1.26 million in the final year of a 4 year rookie deal. If the Titans can’t agree to a new deal with him, they’ll probably have the franchise tag available for him.
