Next week, he’ll head to Phoenix for a series of workouts with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“I plan to work about three weeks with the fella,” Finnegan told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean after the Titans concluded their offseason program with a voluntary minicamp. “I
just want to learn something from him because he is so good at what he
does. It is going to be beneficial for me for me for sure.”
Finnegan realizes that the flow of advice will be one-sided. “I could probably teach him how to wear Vans, that’s about it,”
Finnegan said. “We are two totally
different players, really. He is asked to shut down a receiver and our
defense is totally different from their defense, what we’re asked to do.
But I can learn from him for sure. I wish I could teach him something,
but I’ve got nothing for him.”
In an industry fueled by ego, lies, and testosterone, Finnegan’s candor is refreshing.
