Contract Extension likely in Near Future for Cornerback Jason McCourty
It’s a mutual feeling between McCourty and the Titans, considering that the franchise knows what he is capable of. This is the fourth year in his contract and he is targeted to make about $1.26 million this coming season. In the 2011 season he started in 15 games and had 107 tackles with two interceptions.
It still is a sore spot to a lot of Titans fans as to why it is so easy to negotiate with a player like McCourty, when the Titans gave what seemed like little effort to keep Finnegan when he ended up signing a deal with St. Louis just over what averaged on the franchise tag.
However, though he has not come out and said exactly how much he wants, I don’t believe he has that “luxury” yet. Finnegan was at a position where a name-your-price was okay for a player. He produced well on the field and is worth every penny. McCourty however is not there yet. It is going to be interesting over the next month to see if the Titans franchise and this cornerback can come to an even medium.
Other players with contracts expiring after this season include kicker Rob Bironas, guard Leroy Harris and tight end Jared Cook. The team is currently working on talks with franchise player Michael Griffin before the July 15 deadline.
