Sammy Watkins, Cortland Finnegan a key matchup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) The battle between Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins and Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan is one of the top individual matchups of Sunday's Week 2 game between the two teams, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"The Bills’ top draft choice will be working against a wily veteran in Finnegan," according to the website. "The Miami corner is in his ninth season and has a physical edge to his game that can at times spill over into frustration and over aggression."

The matchup could lead to Watkins' first breakout line of his career. Finnegan ranked 109th out of 110 qualified cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' cumulative cornerback rating last season. However, he did post positive numbers in the same metric in the team's Week 1 win over the Patriots, which included tying for 10th overall in the league in pass coverage rating.


Dolphins counting on Cortland Finnegan bouncing back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) The Dolphins are banking on a bounceback season from cornerback Cortland Finnegan as they "need another veteran presence in the secondary," reports ESPN.com. Finnegan will battle second-year corners Jamar Taylor and Will Davis for the starting job opposite Pro Bowler Brent Grimes.

"Finnegan's experience gives him the advantage, but he must also stay healthy and productive to keep his job during the regular season," the report said. "That is perhaps a bigger challenge."


Cortland Finnegan taking two-year deal with the Dolphins


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/14/2014) Miami is expected to sign cornerback Cortland Finnegan to a two-year deal, a source told NFL Network. The Dolphins will pair him with Brent Grimes as their starting corners, assuming they don't open up a competition for the other starting spot with Will Davis.

Finnegan struggled last year with the Rams, totaling one interception and 27 total tackles in seven games before fracturing an orbital bone. He should be fine for the start of training camp. 


Rams might re-sign Cortland Finnegan at lower price


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team is interested in re-signing cornerback Cortland Finnegan at a later date. Finnegan will be released soon, before his $3 million roster bonus kicks in next week.

Finnegan finished 2013 on injured reserve with a fractured orbital bone but will be ready for training camp.


Rams to release Cortland Finnegan

LaCanfora: Rams expected to cut Cortland Finnegan


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan is not expected to return to the team next season, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora. 

LaCanfora reports there is no way a team still trying to build and with almost no cap room will pay Finnegan $6 million with a $10 million cap hit, especially at the end of his career. He says if Finnegan is designated a post-June 1 cut, the Rams save $9 million in cap space.

Finnegan appeared in just seven games in 2013 and finished with 27 tackles and one interception.


Cortland Finnegan might have to take big pay cut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) If the Rams want cornerback Cortland Finnegan back in 2014, it will almost certainly be at a significantly reduced price, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Finnegan is two years through a five-year, $50 million contract. He turns 30 next month.

Finnegan allowed three touchdown passes in the first four games this season before suffering a fractured orbital below his left eye. It appears surgery won't be necessary.

“That’s a bone issue,” general manager Les Snead told the paper. “As we all know with bones, only time can heal that. It’s not a major (injury) but because it’s up near your eye we’d better let this thing heal.”

If the Rams don't restructure his contract, Finnegan would count $10 million against the 2014 salary cap. That's way too much for a nickel corner.


Cortland Finnegan does not need surgery


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2014) Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan does not need surgery on his fractured orbital bone, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Initial reports had indicated surgery was likely for Finnegan, but that's no longer the case. The injury is expected to heal on its own. The issue caused Finnegan to be placed on IR in late November. 


Injured Rams able to play


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams defensive back Cortland Finnegan (eye), defensive back Matt Giordano (thigh), running back Chase Reynolds (knee) and defensive back Darian Stewart (foot), who were all listed on Friday's injury report, are active for Week 12 against Chicago.

Cortland Finnegan's season ends with IR designation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2013) The Rams placed veteran defensive back Cortland Finnegan on injured reserve Saturday, ending his season after seven games due to an eye injury, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Finnegan was unable to practice throughout the week leading up to Week 12 against the Bears, and the injury is apparently enough that he will not be able to play this season.

Rookie defensive back T.J. McDonald was activated from the IR to take Finnegan's place on the active roster.  

Finnegan finishes the season with 27 tackles in seven games, along with one interception. This will be the first season in his career he will finish with fewer than 13 games played.
