The Miami Dolphins have released cornerback Cortland Finnegan from the team after just one season with the team…
Miami Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan has been released by his team after spending one season with them. Finnegan had signed a two-year, $11 million contract with the Dolphins in 2014.
Finnegan was unable to play the entire season as he suffered an ankle injury. Due to playing just 12 games and being due $5.475 million for the 2015 season, the Dolphins had no choice but to release Finnegan.
The Dolphins have already cut key players from their team, such as wide receivers Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson.
They may release top wide receiver Mike Wallace as well since he is unwilling to take a pay cut.
Finnegan may still be able to find work on a cheap one-year contract, but his Pro Bowl production from his days with the Tennessee Titans are clearly over.
Pro Football Talk announced the Dolphins’ release of Finnegan on Twitter.
