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.
