Titans Franchise Jones, Griffin and Finnegan to Walk
by DC Insider Rick Bennett
Franchise caliber player?
The Titans have opted to use their franchise tag, not on Cortland Finnegan or Michael Griffin as expected, but on DT Jason Jones.
A few years ago, Jones was seen as an up-and-coming young defensive lineman, but his sack numbers have decreased each season of his career and he was largely ineffective in 2011.
The Titans will lock him up for one more season in hopes he can get his career back on track.
The tender amount for a DT is over $7 million.
