Rams’ Cortland Finnegan must lighten his wallet to stay with team

Kevin Patra of reports that St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan will have to take a sizable pay cut if he wants to remain with the club.

Finnegan's contract will count $10 million against the Rams' salary cap and the team would save $4 million if they told Finnegan to go agitate the gravel.

Patra cites a report by NFL media bloodhound Ian Rapoport that the Rams will tell Finnegan to walk if he does not take a drastic pay cut to remain with the team.

Finnegan played in just seven games in 2013 before landing on the injured reserve list in November due to an eye injury.

With the lid closed on the injury to his optical system, Finnegan can focus on getting back to being one of the lowest rated defensive backs in the NFL.

Even with Finnegan’s play on the decline, the question remains why Finnegan would want to stay with the Rams anyway.  Besides, if Finnegan takes a pay cut, which Good Samaritan will pay for all of the fines he receives. 

I vote for quarterback Sam Bradford.
