2014 NFL Free Agency: Cortland Finnegan to visit Miami Dolphins


At the start of free agency, the St. Louis Rams decided to part ways with cornerback Cortland Finnegan, releasing the veteran defender.

Although they have re-signed cornerback Brent Grimes to a four-year deal and ironed out a a contract with former Detroit Lions’ safety Louis Delmas, the Miami Dolphins are still looking for help in the secondary.

After missing out on Nolan Carroll, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, the Dolphins may be turning their attention to Finnegan.

According to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer, the Dolphins are bringing Finnegan in for a visit Friday.

Finnegan attended Samford and was the 215th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans in 2006. He quickly showed what a steal he was, appearing in all 16 games, making 70 tackles and 2.0 sacks as a rookie.

After six years in Tennessee, he joined his old coach, Jeff Fisher, in St. Louis with the Rams.

Last season, Finnegan was limited to just seven games because of injuries. He had 27 tackles and one interception.

    Maybe kick the tires on TE Pettigrew.. Give THill a big target!!! We got small WRs and Clay is a small TE…

    Also G Shelly Smith… Scraping the bottom of the barrel for Guards… Now that all the top Guards signed elsewhere…

    Also RT Strief would be huge!!!! A short contract, since we are drafting Zach Martin, who can play Guard, then slide over to RT…
    THAT WOULD BE IDEAL..
    And that’s a big IF Zach Martin slides to 19 to the Phins
