Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan wants to be the dirtiest player in the NFL, and when he played the Texans last year he took a step toward accomplishing that goal by fighting Andre Johnson. But as he prepares to play the Texans again on Sunday, he’s taking a kinder, gentler approach.
Finnegan was labeled “a prick” by one of the receivers he’s going to be covering on Sunday, Houston’s Kevin Walter. But when Finnegan was asked about Walter, he decided to take the high road.
“I just know he is a really good receiver,” Finnegan said of Walter. “I take offense to nothing anyone says. People can say what they want to. I just keep it moving.”
Finnegan apparently doesn’t want another fight against another Texans receiver, but Walter sounds like he’s itching for a brawl, saying the Texans need to “go hit them in the mouth.”
Whether things get physical between Finnegan and Walter or not, we’re going to see a big game in Tennessee on Sunday. The Titans and the Texans are playing with first place in the AFC South on the line.
