Alterraun Verner says money isn't only factor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Free agent cornerback Alterraun Verner told Mad Dog Radio that he won't necessarily sign with the highest bidder. 

“I feel more compelled to go to a team that I think can win. I haven’t had that experience for the past four years in Tennessee,” Verner said. “Money is [priority] but it isn’t. I look at it differently. Some look at it tangibly. I look at it as more of a respect value. I would feel more obliged to go to a team that paid me $6 or $7 million and made me one of the highest-paid players on the team than go to a team that paid me $8 or $9 million and I wasn’t one of the highest-paid players on the team.”
