Titans going young to replace Pro Bowl cornerback
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee had one Pro Bowl player last season - Alterraun Verner - and lost the cornerback to Tampa Bay in free agency. The Titans are looking to replace him with someone from inside their locker room.
With Verner's departure, Coty Sensabaugh is rotating with Blidi Wreh-Wilson between the cornerback spot opposite Jason McCourty and as the fifth defensive back in passing situations.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday they're also working in Tommie Campbell as well. Whisenhunt says he likes the competition and the Titans will see who emerges when the dust settles.
McCourty says the moves are just part of the cycle of NFL life. He says he and Verner seized their opportunities when Cortland Finnegan left via free agency, and now it's happening with the competition to replace Verner.
