Cortland Finnegan and his former head coach are about to be reunited.
A source told FOXSports.com that Finnegan and St. Louis "have a deal in place" that would bring the Tennessee Titans cornerback to the Rams. Contract details weren't immediately available, but the source said the salary was expected to average around $10 million a season.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher drafted Finnegan in 2006 when holding the same position with the Titans. Finnegan blossomed into one of the NFL's most physical man-coverage corners. That made Tennessee's decision to allow Finnegan to test free agency rather than designate him a franchise player seem curious. The Titans instead used the tag on safety Michael Griffin.
Finnegan, 28, had 11 passes defended, 75 tackles and one interception as a 16-game starter in 2011.
