Cortland Finnegan Profile
The St. Louis Rams have acquired feisty cornerback Cortland Finnegan on a five-year, $50 million contract that reunites him with former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher, a league source confirmed.
Finnegan, 28, was pursued by several teams, but ultimately chose the Rams due to his comfort level with Fisher and the quality of the financial package he was offered.
Finnegan is known for his combative, physical style of play. that has drawn several fines from the NFL. He once got into a fight with Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson where he absorbed several punches and both players were fined $25,000
He has also intercepted 14 career passes.
A former seventh-round draft pick from Samford, Finnegan plays the game with a chip on his shoulder.
And he'll replace Ronald Bartell, who was cut from the team Tuesday after injuring his neck last season.
