Dolphins add CB Finnegan

The SportsXchange

The Miami Dolphins signed free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan to a multiyear contract on Friday.

ESPN reported that the deal is for two years.

The 30-year-old Finnegan spent the past two seasons with the St. Louis Rams, starting 20 of 23 games, but was waived by the Rams after playing in just seven games in 2013.

He is projected to start alongside Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes in Miami. Last week, the Dolphins added free-agency safety Louis Delmas to the secondary.

"Cortland is a tough, play making veteran that brings speed, leadership and another player with Pro Bowl experience to our secondary," Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said.

Finnegan, a seventh-round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, began his career with the Tennessee Titans. He was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2008 season.

Finnegan has started 99 games during his eight-year NFL career. He has 601 tackles, 18 interceptions and 78 passes defensed.
