The thing for me is he's on the wrong side of 30 now and his physical skills are in decline
I have the same concerns Rock. However, you "hope" that maybe by being healthy that will make a big difference. Champ Bailey is 35 years old and will be 36 going into the 2014 and he can still start and play at a high level (When healthy). Definitely not comparing the two, but perhaps Finnegan can play a couple more years if his body is all healed up, It is my understanding that he has been pretty banged up the past two seasons. No arguing that Hickey is taking a gamble on him and especially for the guaranteed money.
However, I would like to see Jamar Taylor win the starting corner job opposite Grimes and Finnegan play in the Nickel Package.
