Projecting Best Fits for FA CB Cortland Finnegan

In a move that surprised absolutely no one, the St. Louis Rams informed cornerback Cortland Finnegan of his release on Wednesday, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.

With a cap number of over $10 million in 2014 and fresh off of the worst season of his eight-year career, Finnegan was cut loose by the Rams two years after signing a five-year, $50 million free-agent contract.

It's an ignominious end in the Gateway City for Finnegan, who once brawled with Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans during a game and who regularly appears on lists of the NFL's dirtiest players.

Of course, Finnegan is also a former Pro Bowler who topped 100 tackles for the Rams in 2012. There's going to be interest, even if Finnegan's new paycheck isn't as fat as the old one.

With that in mind, here's a handful of teams who should consider opening the checkbook.
