NFL Free Agency Rumors: Lions Interested In Cortland Finnegan?

As NFL free agency nears, one of the players Detroit Lions fans should keep an eye on is cornerback Cortland Finnegan. He is set to become a free agent next month, and it doesn't sound like the Tennessee Titans plan on bringing him back. Things could obviously change, but the last time we heard from Finnegan, he was sounding like somebody who wasn't going to be re-signed by Tennessee.

Assuming Finnegan does become a free agent, the Lions are going to be considered by many to be the favorite to sign him. Detroit could use help at cornerback, and Finnegan played for Jim Schwartz when Schwartz was the Titans' defensive coordinator. What's more, already a report is out there from the Free Press suggesting that there could be interest in Finnegan from the Lions side of things.

According to a league source not affiliated with the Lions, Detroit could be one of the key teams interested in Finnegan if the Titans don't sign him before free agency starts March 13.

Until Finnegan signs somewhere, expect to hear more stories like this. The Lions make sense as a landing spot for Finnegan, and I would anticipate there to be a lot of speculation surrounding him and Detroit as long as he is a free agent.
