Griffin Not Opposed to Franchise Tag

Posted by Gary Glenn on March 5, 2012 – 12:36 pm

The Titans placed the franchise tag on Michael Griffin today, a designation the two-time Pro Bowler appeared fine with during a recent radio interview on Nashville’s 102.5 The Game.

“Talking to my mother and coming from a great background, one of the best things she ever said was, ‘That’s a lot more money than you ever played for in any season you ever played. You can’t really be upset because you played for $3 million last year and you’d play for 6.2 million this year,’” Griffin said.

“It’s a business. When you started to play this sport, it was a business first and playing was second. You have to honor your contract, and you’ve got play out your contract. That’s all you can really do. There’s not anything else you can do except to go out and do your job.”

The franchise tag allows both the Titans and Griffin time to work out a long-term contract prior to the start of the season.

    We need you to step it up this year Griff! Last year was a mediocre year for you, get back to the day when you got here and when you was a beast! You’re play’n for a contract next year, no matter who you play for! Good-Luck & Go Titans!

    Great move for the Titans. He really has to put up some good numbers to stay with us after this year. GO TITANS!! and the best to you Griffin. Maybe Finnegan will be the next to sign you know he loves where he is and will prob. stay at a discount.

    Yayy I like Griffin :)

    He is a great player but inconsistent at times,Cortland is a better player though and is more valuable to the defense. I say keep Griffin,Hope,and Finnegan Draft a DB In the 3rd Round a Safety in the 4th round, Put Hope at 2nd string and let him teach the rookie!

    idk i think we keep babinuex not hope, hopefully get finnegan n then get a rookie 2 for the nickle er somthing, cuz verners a pretty solid CB…hopes just kinda getting old and is pretty injury prone

    He Needs To Play Smarter!!! All Kinds OF Physical Ability! Now get That Mind Right! Go Titans!

    WHERE IS FINNEGAN?!!!!!! We also need to get Mario Williams in free agancy,but really why are we gonna treat the best team player(31) we’ve had since (eddie george and frank whycheck) like crap. RESIGN HIM!!!

    I’m a die-hard Titans fan, first and foremost. But really guys, Finnegan is way overrated and you know it. He gets burned so many times in alot of games, and who is their to catch his slack? Griffin. Griffin is an outstanding player with abnormal coverage ability for a Safety, which is why we initially wanted at corner. In my opinion, McCourty played to a Pro-Bowl level last year and Verner is very solid. Tommie Campbell will be very good for us. Keep Babineux over Hope, he’s younger, faster, and has much better coverage skills and health at this point in their careers. Tennessee needs to get this long-term signing for Griffin, get Mario or John Abraham, and draft a DE, I’m thinking, Whitney Mercilus from Syracuse. Then later, draft or pickup a RUNNINGBACK!! Yes, I said it. Never trust a RB with two down years in a row, especially, when that RB is that teams only offense.

    Predictions: Locker will start over Hasselbeck; Jamie Harper will start at week 6 and throughout the season; Britt, Cook, McCarthy, and Klug will have breakout years; Tennessee gets into the playoffs, sweeping both Jaguars and Texans, splitting with the Andrew Luck-led Colts.

    I think Finnegan is good player but not a great player. I really think we are sleeping on Verner. You put Verner and McCarthy on the field at the same time I think we will have some lockdown coverages with Griffin over top. I think we can get another great DB and Safety in the draft. We need to use free agency to get Mario Williams. I really think this team we have can sweep the AFC South this year if our coaching staff and front office makes some sound decisions in April.

    Ya looks like we gonna lose Finnegan now he is way better than griffin

    VERNER IS A BALLHAWK! HE WILL HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF PICKS .HE ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE WHERE THE BALL IS , I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING A STARTER LAST YEAR. GRIFFIN IS SOLID ,NEED BABINEUX ALSO A BALLHAWK!

    Joe P Verner and McCourty did play a lot of snaps together because they had finnegan in the slot. Finnegan’s numbers are down because the other teams play away from him. He would have great numbers playing in the slot if we had a pass rush because teams look for quick passes to the slot recievers. The real way to tell which one is better see which one BUD gets rid of he always loses the best.

    you mean we let are best corner walk and sign a guy who is never where he should be in our zone defense..hmmm and i like the titans why

    Tagging Griffin was a smart move, safety is a little thin in free agency and the draft this year. Since we have our FS locked up for at least 1 more year, now we could consider drafting Bama SS Mark Barron.

    TITANS DRAFT JEKINS WE NEED A CORNER AND HE CAN COME RIGHT IN AND START AT CORNER.HIS NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELFS.YES HE GOT IN TROUBLE IN HIS YOUNGER DAYS AT MIAMI BUT THEM DAYS ARE WELL BEHIND HIM.LETS GO TITANS WE NEED THIS GUY HE WILL BE A PRO BOWL PLAYER IN 3 YRS.DONT LET THIS GUY SLIP AWAY.
