    Where is Finny? (all things Finny goes here)

    Cortland Finnegan has reportedly "walked out" of Titans' training camp due to a contract dispute.
    Finnegan is set to make $3.3 million in the final year of a four-year contract this season. The face of the Titans defense, he has some leverage if he's angling for a new long-term deal. What was already going to be a challenging Titans season could get downright ugly if both Finnegan and Chris Johnson miss a large majority of camp.

    Just when I was starting to feel hopeful for this season... Finnegan needs to stay in camp and help us progress not pull this.

    In my opinion, McCourty and Verner were being groomed to take over his spot anyway after this year. Let him walk. After all this talk about how he's never been more excited to be on a football field...tisk tisk.

    Titans Jerseys I own....VY, CJ, Britt, Moss, Finnegan. I blame myself. It appears I put a hex on this team. Or wasted a lot of money...

    There's no doubt it's your fault and your fault alone. How's that feel?

    Shocked.

    Very surprised at this. Hopefully it's one of those media-making-something-out-nothing things. Hopefully...

    On Thursday night, Finnegan stayed after practice to work with the younger DB's on press coverage techniques. Seemed to be gliding into a leadership role and carrying over from him organizing the offseason workouts, etc.

    Extremely disappointing if this turns out to be his true reasoning. This would be quite the buzz kill to what has been a very exciting vibe coming out of practice this week.
