When coach Jeff Fisher took over the Rams, bringing in Cortland Finnegan was an obvious hire, to add the kind of toughness he thought the Rams needed.

With his recent play and his salary, getting rid of him was just as obvious.

Finnegan just tweeted out what appears to be his goodbye to the Rams, saying “thank you for your letting me play for a classy franchise and coach fish nothing but love thank you all.”

Finnegan had a $3 million roster bonus coming due next week, and was going to count $10 million against the cap. That would have been fine if he hadn’t played so poorly last season.

As much as he likes Fisher and Fisher might like him, that made this one a bit of a no-brainer.
