Top free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan would have been a sensible target for St. Louis because of his ties to coach Jeff Fisher. Finnegan may have priced himself out of the Rams’ range, however. Like Finnegan, Rogers has experience covering both slot and outside receivers. He’s three years older, though, and didn’t enjoy a true breakout season until his age-30 season. So, presumably, Rogers could come cheaper than Finnegan.
Rogers is the 13th-ranked player overall on PFT’s Hot 100 Free Agency list.
