NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan has apologized to his bosses, teammates, fans and even the media for bolting training camp. He also said he left because he was upset over talks for an extension, not the personal issue he mentioned defending himself on Twitter.
Finnegan said Monday after practice he understands he was a distraction to his team that wasn't needed. He said he let emotions get the best of him when he wanted to meet with his wife and discuss contract talks that he hopes will allow him to retire with Tennessee.
The cornerback reported back for camp before curfew Sunday night, and he talked with new coach Mike Munchak on Monday.
Munchak said Finnegan will be fined, and the cornerback said he will willingly pay.
