Although the Titans are prohibited from having direct contact with any of their players during the lockout, we hear that the club is likely pleased with CB Cortland Finnegan.

Finnegan is one of the players coordinating workouts for the Titans June 8-9. While approximately 10-15 players have gotten together for workouts in Nashville the past several weeks, the veteran cornerback is hopeful that a much larger contingency will be on hand for what he is calling "unofficial minicamps" next week.

It's no secret that Tennessee was lacking in the leadership department last season following the departure of several respected veterans, including C Kevin Mawae and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch. With the door wide open for leaders to emerge on a young team with a new coaching staff, we hear that it is a positive step that Finnegan — who daily team observers said needed to grow up after last season — is taking it upon himself to fill the void and become more accountable as he enters a critical contract year.
