Titans CB Cortland Finnegan Apologizes for Absence From Team

Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan apologized on Monday for his actions when he left the team unannounced and then ripped media for twisting the story.

Finnegan acknowledged his one-day absence was in fact related to his unhappiness with his contract. Sunday on Twitter he said his absence was because of personal issues.

He also acknowledged he didn’t tell the team he was leaving camp. Sunday on Twitter he said he had informed the team officials.

“I want to apologize to the media for this tirade of events that’s happened. It has been nothing but a distraction to the team that was not needed,’’ he said. “When I was talking with my agent, because I wasn’t happy with some of the things said I let the emotions get the best of me and I had to take a step back personally and regroup.

“I took the negotiations personally and I shouldn’t have and it affected everyone in the community and the team and I deeply regret that … I want to be here long-term.”
