Though some have criticized Miami’s signing of cornerback Cortland Finnegan, one competing general manager insisted it was a smart move because “he’s tough and physical” and might regain his previous form in a defensive system better suited to him.

Finnegan’s coach in St. Louis, Jeff Fisher, said “you get to that age [30] where you have to be aware of [potential loss of speed]. But when he was playing for us, he could still run.”…

Fisher said even though Shelley Smith started only two games for the Rams in 2013, he’s a starting-caliber guard, plus “an outstanding run blocker and very physical.”

It's basically a see what you have kind of contract. It's a smart contract.

He's still making $5m with a possibility of warming the bench. I'd say he is a favorite to beat out the two Ireland gems Taylor/Davis, but it's still a possibility. I'm not a big fan of the signing, hopefully he will prove me wrong and post up elite numbers again.

I think that if we cut him before the season he won't make that much. Right? Anyone?

Yep, we saw that with Patterson the past year and a half. At least Finnegan is healthier and has upside.
