NFL Free Agency 2012: Cortland Finnegan Drawing Interest From Jacksonville Jaguars

The 2012 NFL free agency period begins in just a few weeks, so the rumblings of who teams are interested will begin to come to light. One of the positions the Jacksonville Jaguars will consider bolstering in either free agency or the NFL Draft will be the cornerback position. According to the Detroit Free Press, the Jaguars are one of many teams who will be in the running for the services of free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan.

The Lions -- along with St. Louis, Dallas, Oakland, San Francisco, Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville -- could make a play for Finnegan, according to the source.

Finnegan would command a contract similar to the five-year, $48.75-million contract Johnathan Joseph signed last year with Houston. Finnegan likely would seek a deal for at least $10 million per year for five or six years, according to the source.

Jaguars fans should be very familiar with Finnegan, as he's played for the Tennessee Titans his entire career. Originally Finnegan was a 7th round pick out of Samford in the 2006 NFL Draft. Finnegan also made the 2008 Pro Bowl and All-Pro team.
