St. Louis Rams Sign Cortland Finnegan For Reported $10 Million Per Season

The St. Louis Rams have signed free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports. He adds in a subsequent report that the deal is "expected to average about $10 [million] per season."

Evan Silva at Rotoworld called the Finnegan-Rams thing awhile ago, where the talk all started. Give him a follow on Twitter @evansilva.

What a week for the Rams.

Finnegan was a match all along with his connections to Jeff Fisher and Fisher's desperate need to fix the Rams secondary. No team can win with that many question marks in the backfield.

Once the freed up salary cap space by cutting veteran players, including Ron Bartell, it seemed all but inevitable that they would.

Finnegan is a great fit for the Rams. His intensity can be an asset, and Fisher can, mostly, control it.

From a schematic sense, Finnegan gives the Rams a good match for Bradley Fletcher and Jerome Murphy, providing the coaching staff can extract their talent. Finnegan can play the outside or the slot. Remember when Justin King started there?

The big splashes keep coming from the Rams. Blockbuster trades, cutting starters and now a major free agent score. Not a bad month for Les Snead ... and Rams fans desperate for some bold action from the team after all these years.
