The Dolphins are reportedly close to a contract with a cornerback seeking to recapture his best form.
According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, ex-Rams corner Cortland Finnegan is in the process of striking a two-year deal with Miami.
Finnegan, 30, is poised to join a Dolphins secondary with a clear-cut top cornerback in Brent Grimes. Finnegan and second-year corners Jamar Taylor and Will Davis seem the primary contenders for the other prominent spots on the depth chart at the position.
Finnegan comes off his worst season as a pro. Injuries limited him to seven games for St. Louis, which released him last week. However, he has 99 career regular season starts to his credit, and he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2008, which are just a couple of the measures of the quality of his play at points of his career, which began as a seventh-round pick of Tennessee eight years ago.
