    SUMMARY: Cortland Finnegan, a seventh-round draft pick out of Samford, won a training camp competition to be the third CB in the nickel package. In doing so, he brings 4.33 speed to a position the Titans often use in pressure packages to blitz. Finnegan already has two sacks to his credit after three games. "Cortland's very quick and he's instinctive and he can dip and he can work his way to the quarterback," Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. "That's helped him. I feel like he's going to be a pretty good player. He's still learning; he's got a lot to learn, but he's learning on the run and he's learned from his mistakes and has been productive for us."

    Fuller was before he got hurt. Then I think it was Waddell.
