Report: Cortland Finnegan to visit Dolphins

Once upon a time Cortland Finnegan was an excellent cornerback who had the ability to get under the skin of most every wide receiver he faced.

Finnegan, 30, still drives receivers crazy. But he isn't an excellent cornerback anymore.

The Dolphins nonetheless are interested in him because he is taking an unrestricted free agent visit with the team Friday, according to NFL Media's Albert Breer.

Finnegan was cut by the Rams on March 5th -- only two years after he signed a whopping five-year, $50 million contract that included $27 million in guaranteed money.

Why did the Rams cut ties with such a big-name and big-money player?

He didn't live up to his reputation or the contract.

Finnegan apparently played hurt much of 2013 which might have something to do with his diminished level of play. He played in only seven games but was benched for two of those. He finished the season with only one pass defensed and one interception.

Finnegan is not going to command big money.

He's not that guy anymore.

Home says,
One is a HOF QB arguably the best QB of all time,w 5 SB appearances and 3 rings, might get another one this yr. Made the AFC Championship game w only half his team starting this year

The other went 6-36 on deep passes to Wallace and was humiliated in losing to 5th QB option practice squad QB 5.9 Thad Lewis and 25 INT QB Geno Smith to close the season

Hickey was the only one kept by Tampa....

Hey Armando , Why aren't we trying to go after a guy like Devin Hester? Our return game has been awful since we Traded away Ginn For Nothing. Hester would give us a few easy points and set us up with much better field position then the 15 yard line like half our drives started last year.

Disappointed the Fins weren't more aggressive with solving the biggest need...the O-line. We had 4 positions to fill and only addressed one...wasn't that what happened last year?

Finnegan just signed the contract
