The Dolphins are reportedly slated to meet with an experienced starting cornerback who’s trying to bounce back after a tough 2013 season.

According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, Miami will host former Rams corner Cortland Finnegan on Friday.

Just two years ago, Finnegan was regarded as one of the best free agents in the Class of 2012, and he signed a lucrative deal with St. Louis. However, he was limited to just seven games last season because of an injured thigh and a broken orbital bone, and the Rams released him last week.

Long known for his toughness and feistiness, the 30-year-old Finnegan has notched 601 tackles and 18 interceptions. If he could recapture his best form, the 5-foot-10, 179-pound cornerback would strengthen any defense. The Dolphins, it appears, are the first to give him a longer look.
