The former All-Pro cornerback tweeted Wednesday that he's done as a Ram:
His release saves the team $4 million in 2014 while generating roughly $6 million in dead money.
Long before a fractured orbital bone ended his 2013 season, Finnegan's play had fallen off a cliff. Limited to nickel duty, the once-physical and reliable cover man was too frequently torched in coverage for a defense that obviously no longer sees him as a priority.
If he's brought back, it will be on the cheap.
