Finnegan Signs with Rams

Courtland Finnegan was one of the few free agents that was linked to the Lions, but there was very little chance the Lions could afford him.  Those thoughts were well founded as Finnegan has agreed to a 5 year $50 million deal with the Rams.

Even if the Lions had renegotiated Calvin Johnson’s contract and signed Cliff Avril to a long term deal that would have been far too rich for them.  Finnegan is a great cornerback, but the Lions’ philosophy of building the front four to consistently get pressure alleviates the need to spend ridiculous money on defensive backs.
