Saints Sign CB Cortland Finnegan

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Let's not forget that Swann hasn't practiced in a while. I don't remember if his injury was ever clarified but that's Lewis and Swann who are both MIA....

I hate this signing. My only question is, where is Andre Johnson when you need him?

Re: Saints Sign CB Cortland Finnegan

In what way
He has nothing left
You dont like him

If he has anything left i like it. But then i believe you need a few players with that nasty side to them. Same reason i wanted Burfict and Setreal Henderson as a late round/UDFA a few years back

I love this signing, yeah he is a bit old now, but a very nice addition to the team! If Lewis doesn't have to miss extended time, this pretty much can make the Saints in excellent shape at CB.

Good at disrupting WR off the line of scrimmage. Mean little man that don't back down. Pure bad attitude on the field. I love this signing, I hope he has another year left in the tank.

.
The NFL announced a rule change on Wednesday that will have a notable impact on rosters this fall. The league changed the injured reserve with return designation so that you no longer have to designate the player ahead of time. Teams are still only allowed to bring one player back, but they can bring back any one player they've placed on injured reserve.

Previously, if a team wanted to use the one return designation spot, they had to declare it when the player was placed on injured reserve. Now, they can just see who is getting healthy quickly, and take them off IR. Once they take that player off IR, the rest of the IR players must remain on the list.
