J.R. Lind of the Nashville Post reported this morning that Cortland Finnegan has sold one of his houses in Nashville today. He also made the note that Finnegan still owns two other pieces of property in Nashville, though one of those is his mother’s home.
Pending Tennessee Titans free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan sold his Riverwalk home today for $228,000, according to a filing with Davidson County Register of Deeds… From a fiduciary standpoint, the sixth-year man out of Samford took a loss, having bought the Bellevue home for $272,900 in the spring of 2007.
This certainly doesn’t bode as a good sign for Finnegan and the Titans. Finnegan is set to be a free agent March 13 and has yet to have contract talks since walking out on them during practice this last fall. Finnegan is the Titans number one cornerback and is one of three key defensive backs set to be a free agent. If the Titans let him leave via free agency, as well as Michael Griffin, they best have their eyes set on some players they think are adequate replacements and be willing to pay for them. Otherwise the Titans have a pretty naked backfield, save Verner and McCourty.
