Don't know if I like it or not but maybe to bring a bit more swagger to the backfield.

Maybe also kicking tires. We have a history of signing players just to see all year long so not going to read to much into the signing.

I hate to say it but this looks like a desperation move. Lewis says he's coming back. I hope this doesn't mean Breaux's injury is serious.

Pro Bowler in his prime. Serviceable rotation guy now. He'll do well in the slot.

True.
PJ looks good but needs more experience and playing time. Lewis is 50/50 on coming back healthy, and could be done for good. Swann is injury prone. Harris and Crawley are rookies who aren't anywhere near ready to start.

It will be interesting to see what Mr. Finnegan brings to the table.

In other words, we just signed Brandon Browner.

Not hardly. Finnegan is a more refined cornerback & doesn't mug as nearly as #39 does. More importantly, Dennis Allen won't allow Cortland to hurt this team with ridiculous penalties and shenanigans.

If we can get pressure this could work out. I have seen older CB's than him do well with a good push. One I remember was 38 playing for the Rams and he tore Brees and Co up. Can't remember his name but was a fill in due to injuries I believe.

If you're looking for attitude, trust me, you found it.
