One of the more surprising moves this off-season was the Titans decision not to use their franchise tag on cornerback Cortland Finnegan, preferring instead of designate safety Michael Griffin, in an effort to save money and allow younger players to step up into Finnegan’s role.
Tennessee’s loss has now become St. Louis’ gain, as Alex Marvez of Fox Sports is reporting that the Rams have agreed to a deal with Finnegan. ESPN’s Adam Schefter puts the financials of the contract at five years, $50 million.
Finnegan, 28, finished the 2011 campaign with 75 tackles, one sack, and one interception, bringing his career total in those three stat lines to 473 tackles, six sacks, and 14 interceptions.
