The Miami Dolphins have been quiet the last two days. But they are not done yet. According to reports yesterday St. Louis Rams CB Cortland Finnegan will visit Miami on Friday. When healthy, Finnegan is a huge talent with close to lockdown ability. A strong hitter and coverage corner Finnegan’s biggest battle is his own health where nicks and dings have taken him out of games. The Dolphins have a need across from Brent Grimes. Dimitri Patterson was released and Nolan Carroll (NOT Chris Clemons) signed with the Eagles.
The bigger issue with Finnegan however is his play as of late. He gave up several touchdowns last year and his play significantly slowed on the field. Whether due to injuries or decline in performance there was a definite decline from two seasons ago when the Rams gave him a big contract. There is likely better options available but no harm in giving him a look.
The Dolphins don’t appear ready to give the job to sophomores Will Davis or Jamar Taylor.
On the offensive line, Miami has reached out to New Orleans Saints RT Zach Strief. Strief was contact early in the process but had prior off-season commitments and thus far has made no official visits. It’s been reported that he would like to remain in New Orleans but the Saints are strapped with the salary cap. The Dolphins have huge holes at both guard positions and right tackle.
