Alterraun Verner explains why he chose the Buccaneers over the Titans

Tennessee Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner elected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He reportedly agreed to four-year, $26.5 million deal with $14 million in guaranteed money.

Verner tried to explain the move saying it wasn’t about money.

“I can understand why (the Titans) did what they did from a business standpoint. I feel like they wanted me to come back, but I wasn’t really a strong piece. I didn’t feel like they felt me being there or not was going to make a big impact on the team. So I guess I just wanted to go to a place where I felt wanted, and appreciated more,” Verner said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “It was good they didn’t give up on me … and I appreciate that. But I feel like this was best for me and my family.”
