Cortland Finnegan – the poster child for good scouting Dan Leberfeld
The St. Louis Rams just gave free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan $27 million in guaranteed money.
That is the most guaranteed money ever given to a cornerback.
Get this – Finnegan came into the league as a seventh round pick of the Tennessee Titans out of Samford University, a I-AA program.
That, my friends, is great scouting.
From late round flyer in 2006, to the highest paid cornerback in the NFL.
