Cortland Finnegan Is Missing In Action

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Titans star cornerback Cortland Finnegan skipped a team meeting on Saturday and is believed to be unhappy about his current contract situation.

Finnegan, who is scheduled to make $3.793 million in 2011, is in the final year of a deal he originally signed in 2008.

One week following the Nnamdi Asomugha/Johnathan Joseph deals in Philadelphia and Houston respectively, I’d guess Finnegan is looking for a bigger slice of the Tennessee’s pie.

Asomugha signed a five-year, $60 million deal and received $25 million guaranteed from Philly. Joseph inked a five-year, $48.75 million contract with $23.5 millon guaranteed.

While getting Asomugha money is probably an unrealistic expectation for Finnegan, taking a look at the Joseph deal is much more logical.

Joseph and Finnegan both entered the league in 2006. Meanwhile, Joseph never made a Pro Bowl or All-Pro team, which Finnegan accomplished both in 2008.

It appears that Tennessee needs to back up the Brinks truck for running back Chris Johnson and now, Finnegan.
