Panthers Worked Out CBs Cortland Finnegan, Bradley Fletcher & Robert McClain

Bill Voth of the Black and Blue Review reports that the Panthers worked out veteran CB Cortland Finnegan on Friday.

Finnegan, 31, is a former seventh round pick of the Titans back in 2006. He spent the first four years of his career with Tennessee before joining the Rams in 2012.

St. Louis cut him after two years and he later caught on with the Dolphins in March of last year. Miami ultimately cut Finnegan loose in a move that freed up $5.475 million in available cap space before the start of free agency.

Last year, he recorded 44 tackles, one forced fumble, a recovery, nine pass defenses and scored a defensive touchdown over the course of 12 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 74 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.

Fletcher, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2009. He joined the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent back in 2013 before signing on with the Patriots this past March.

New England signed him to a one-year, $1.5 million contract, but wound up releasing him a little over a month ago in a move that created $1,581,250 in available cap space.

This season, Fletcher has recorded 10 tackles and a forced fumble for the Patriots over the course of two games.

McClain, 27, is a former seventh round pick of the Panthers back in 2010. He lasted just over a year in Carolina before he was waived at the start of the 2011 season.

Since then, McClain has played for the Jaguars and Falcons before joining the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent this past March. Unfortunately for McClain, he was among the Patriots’ roster cuts at the start of the season.

In 2014, McClain appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 59 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 90 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
