Dolphins Camp Day 3: Turning it up a notch in full pads

The Miami Dolphins cranked up the heat on their third day of training camp with the first of 11 scheduled practices in full pads. Braving temperatures that often approached 95 degrees, the added padding not only meant that players would be taking bigger hits from each other, but also the unforgiving Florida sun. "I don't know how some of (the other guys) don't sweat...

Cortland Finnegan’s fresh new start with Miami

Cortland Finnegan rubs many the wrong way, but it seems that those who despise him the most know the least about him, or they are Andre Johnson. To the casual fan the most memorable moment of Finnegan’s career came with his Sunday afternoon sprawl with the aforementioned Andre Johnson, but one would be remiss not to dig deeper.   Finnegan was a Sunshine State product, as he went...

Best Week/Worst Week: Cortland Finnegan And Another Brown

Getty Image If you call up Mike Florio to tell him that what he wrote about you is ********, you had a good week. If at the end of that conversation Florio is worried that you’re going to beat him up, you had the Best Week. Finnegan didn’t like Florio’s editorializing about his relationship with coaching staffs (stick to aggregating), so he did what so many of us do on Twitter...

Former St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan trashes Tim Walton

I’ve done my fair share of picking on Cortland Finnegan while running this site for the past year or so. Nothing personal against him, he just massively underperformed while wearing a Rams uniform and got paid nearly $30 million over two years to do so. The whole Finnegan era was quite ugly. Now, though, Finnegan, who signed a free agent contract with the Miami Dolphins this offseason...

Finnegan, Grimes ready to be Miami's dynamic duo

BY DAN BEGNOCHELast year, cornerback Brent Grimes signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins with the hope he could prove he was still an elite defender following a string of injuries. He did just that, ranking second among all cornerbacks in 2013, according to ProFootballFocus, and earning a spot in the Pro Bowl.This year, fellow corner Cortland Finnegan is hoping to follow...

Faster Than a Speeding Bullet, it’s the Miami Dolphins Offense

Trying to mesh with his new team, veteran Miami Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan is just stoked with the speediness of the Dolphins’ offense.

Finnegan on Dolphins offense: 'I've never seen anything this fast'

The legend of Bill Lazor continues to grow. While the new Dolphins offensive coordinator installs his system, rumors have swirled about the up-tempo, high-powered offense. Lazor, who worked underneath Chip Kelly last season as the Eagles quarterbacks coach, has taken a page – or two – out of his playbook.

Miami Dolphins: Why signing Knowshon Moreno is a big move

The Miami Dolphins had a very disappointing collapse down the stretch of the season last year, and one of their main holes was at the running back position. Lamar Miller was unable to have the breakout year that many expected, and Daniel Thomas was once again inconsistent. Knowshon Moreno was signed this past week in hopes that he can add some stability to the ground game. So why...

Miami Dolphins sign CB Cortland Finnegan

I rarely give F’s for signings, but this one is an F. Actually, it’s more like a WTF. Cortland Finnegan was a train wreck last season with the Rams. He only played 367 snaps in 7 games for a variety of reasons, including injuries and poor performance, but he still graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 2nd worst ranked cornerback. He allowed 26 of 34 completion for 353 yards, 4...

Financially speaking, cornerback Cortland Finnegan was a free-agent bust. The Rams gave Finnegan a five-year deal for $50 million, and though he didn't get all of that loot, the contract did include $27 million in guarantees.
