ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Rams have officially signed cornerback Cortland Finnegan to a five-year contract.

The deal is reported to be worth around $50 million, with the majority being paid in the first few years of the pact.

Finnegan will be reunited with head coach Jeff Fisher in St. Louis as the six-year veteran was drafted in the seventh round of the 2006 draft by the Tennessee Titans during Fisher's tenure.

Finnegan appeared in 93 career games with the Titans, recording 473 tackles and 14 interceptions.

"We are very, very excited about his future here and what he can do as far as contributing to our defense," said Fisher in a release. "I have had a relationship with him, I know him very well and I know he's going to fit in and be a very fine player for us."
