Finnegan's agent, Terry Watson, met with Titans general manager Ruston Webster and vice president/football administration Vin Marino, the newspaper said. Webster and Marino could not be reached for comment. Watson was brief in telling the newspaper via text that they "had a good visit."

Finnegan wanted an extension last offseason on a contract that paid the All-Pro cornerback more than $3.7 million in 2011. He briefly left training camp over a contract dispute and is now set to become a free agent next month.

Though unexpected, the Titans could use the $10.6 million franchise tag on Finnegan before the March 5 deadline.

Finnegan, 28, turned down a four-year, $28 million deal before last season, according to The Tennessean. According to the report, Finnegan is seeking more than the five-year, $48.75 million contract cornerback Johnathan Joseph signed with the Houston Texans last July, a deal that included $23.5 million in guarantees.

Earlier this week, when asked what kind of deal Finnegan is looking for, Watson told The Tennessean, "one that makes him one of the top-paid cornerbacks in the NFL."
