Titans tag Griffin not Finnegan

Interesting move here. Tennessee had two defensive back free agents that I thought Detroit would be interested in going after in free agency based on Jim Schwartz history with the players. Cornerback Cortland Finnegan has been talked about in many prior posts and is probably going to cost more than the Lions could think about affording given their cap situation. But another place the Lions could upgrade was at safety and Michael Griffin may have been a good opportunity. He would have been an upgrade and cost far less.

Makes me wonder if based on the last two years the Lions taking Tennessee's defensive free agents KVB and Tulloch to reunite with Schwartz did not play into Tennessee making this decision. Finnegan is the higher profile and you would expect him to get the tag first. Is it possible that they tagged Griffin thinking that the Lions (or others) could not afford Finnegan's demands and but may be able to afford Griffin?
