- Albert Breer reports that Finnegan will receive $11 million over two years, “or close to that.”
- ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms that the Dolphins have reached an agreement with Finnegan on a two-year contract.
The Dolphins have already locked up Brent Grimes to a long-term deal this offseason, but were looking at other cornerback options after they parted ways with Dimitri Patterson and lost Nolan Carroll to the Eagles.
Finnegan, 30, signed a five-year, $50 million contract that included $27 million guaranteed with St. Louis back in 2012, but he lasted just two years with the team before they elected to take the $7 million in cap space and move on.
Finnegan was limited to playing in seven games last year and totaled 27 tackles and an interception. He graded out as the second worst qualifying cornerback in the league while struggling in all areas, according to Pro Football Focus.
