Alterraun Verner came into Week 15 leading the NFL in passes defended and tied for second in interceptions. Despite his short stature and his limits in a man-coverage scheme, he's a great player, and someone is probably going to be offering him a boatload of money in free agency.
The chances that the Titans will be able to retain him are slim, especially with a new regime in town to which he won't feel any loyalty.
With Verner probably gone, corner has looked like a big need for the Titans in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft.
However, they may not have that big of a need after all. Tommie Campbell was nipping at Verner's heels for the starting spot during the offseason, and Coty Sensabaugh has turned into a very promising player in his own right.
Against the Cardinals, Sensabaugh broke up a pass against Larry Fitzgerald. He ended the day with five tackles and one pass defended.
Sensabaugh still isn't the best tackler in the backfield, and he struggled covering Fitzgerald (who doesn't?), but he's made tremendous progress in his second season. Between Sensabaugh, Campbell and rookie Blidi Wreh-Wilson, the Titans may have enough young, improving corners to forgo spending a high pick on the position, even if they can't retain Verner.
