Tennessee Titans cornerback Alterruan Verner may be about to leave the Titans after he admitted that he needs to take advantage of getting paid high while he can.
The Titans have chosen not to use the franchise tag on Verner, which means that the premier corner doesn't have much security in Tennessee as we go through the off-season.
For Verner it's not about getting paid a high amount of money but he does insist that he wants to get a fair deal for the quality he provides on the field.
"I love being here, I love my teammates and I love Tennessee. When it comes to the money, it is not like I need to be paid super high," Verner told The Tennessean on Monday.
"But I am not going to be a fool and take anything that is super small. From a business standpoint, you don't know how long you are going to play in this league, so you have to take advantage when you can."
Verner has had four seasons in the NFL with the Titans and he has improved each year, so much so that for his performances in 2014 he gained Pro Bowl honors for the first time.
Last season was the best of his career by far as he picked off five passes and made 23 pass defensed plays.
The team that ends up with him for the 2014 NFL season will be drastically improved by Pro Bowler's skills.
