Adam Shefter of ESPN is reporting the St. Louis Rams may have an inside track to signing free agent CB Cortland Finnegan:
Free-agent CB Cortland Finnegan scheduled to visit Rams on Wednesday. Finnegan could rejoin Jeff Fisher.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2012
Finnegan played for Jeff Fisher from 2006 through 2010, when Fisher was fired from his position as the Tennesse Titans' head coach. The 28-year-old corner back has missed only 3 games in his whole career, collecting 14 career interceptions and 389 career tackles*.

The Rams finished the 2011 NFL season tied for a league-worst 2-14 record. The team recently traded their No. 2 overall pick in the draft for a haul of later picks from the Washington Redskins.
