    Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner leads the Titans with 23 passes defensed, the most by a Titan defender in 15 seasons. Cornerback Jason McCourty is second on the team with 13 passes defensed.

    As a tandem, the players are on the verge of breaking the high mark since the team moved to Tennessee. With two more passes defensed, they’ll surpass the total of 37 by cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Nick Harper in 2008.

    The Titans have three more games to go.

    “Those guys have been doing a really good job, especially with what we ask them to do,’’ defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said. “(They play) a lot of man-to-man, play Titan-tough.

    “They do a great job of competing.”

    2008 was one of the best defensive years we ever had. So yes, it is a nice statistic.

    Verner needs to be paid. This is a passing league and he is a young guy in his prime who is always around the ball and is a good tackler. He is a smart, hard working, high character guy. He is the type that will be in the league for a long time. We need him locked up so that we aren't having to look at a corner in the first rnd.

    Harper was a breath of fresh air after the Reynaldo Hill era.

    Its a nice stat but did it add up to more wins ?

    So do we brake up the band or overpay for vern

    and it still does not get us anymore wins with him ...

    if we spend the money it needs to be on guys that make us win more games ...no?
