At 289.8 yards per game allowed in 2013, the Philadelphia Eagles brought home the mantle of the NFL's worst pass defense.
Some of the problem was bad coverage. Horrific tackling by the safeties didn't help.
The Eagles have already locked up several key offensive free agents and still have over $29 million in cap space to play with, so the defense would appear to be the priority for free agency and this year's NFL draft.
Enter the aforementioned Cortland Finnegan.
Granted, as with every other team on this slideshow, Finnegan will have to show teams that last year was a bump in the road, and not the edge of a cliff.
A flashback to 2011, when Finnegan was PFF's second-ranked player at his position, would be ideal, but let's not get nuts.
However, that does serve as a reminder that Finnegan, not too long ago, was one of the NFL's best. He's not the biggest dog in the fight at 5'10", but you don't top 600 career stops by being shy about getting dirty.
Even if Finnegan isn't able to anchor a secondary anymore, he still has value to one, especially a team in need of some more pop in the defensive backfield.
