Right now the Jets are perceived as one of the teams with an inside track of Titans CB Alterraun Verner, but now that Rodger Saffold has made his intentions clear to sign somewhere else, are the Rams about to get into the market for Verner?
Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com writes that Verner is a legitimate possibility for the Rams.
… should Saffold depart, his money could be funneled somewhere else. That somewhere else could be spent on one of the league’s top available defensive backs.
Headlining that list is Tennessee cornerback Alterraun Verner. League sources have confirmed that the Rams’ interest in Verner is very real and with Saffold out of the picture, the Rams can probably find a way to work him on to the pay roll.
