The St. Louis Rams and free agent cornerback Cortland Finnegan have agreed to terms on a contract.||||||| The 28-year-old Finnegan has played all six NFL seasons with Tennessee, the first five under Jeff Fisher. Finnegan was undergoing a physical and Fisher, the Rams' new coach, planned for a 10 a.m. CDT news conference Thursday to introduce the player. Finnegan was an All-Pro in 2008 and is known for his physical style. He got into a punching match with Texans star receiver Andre Johnson during a game in 2010 and both were fined $25,000.

Finnegan has apologized to his bosses, teammates, fans and even the media for bolting training camp. He also says he left because he was upset over talks for an extension, not the personal issue he mentioned defending himself on Twitter.||||||| Finnegan said Monday after practice he understands he was a distraction to his team that wasn't needed. He says he let emotions get the best of him when he wanted to meet with his wife and discuss contract talks that he hopes will allow him to retire with Tennessee. The cornerback reported back for camp before curfew Sunday night, and he talked with new coach Mike Munchak on Monday. He will be fined.

Finnegan missed a mandatory team meeting on Saturday. His absence was confirmed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the meeting. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented on Finnegan's status.||||||| Yahoo! Sports reports that Finnegan walked out of training camp Friday night, upset about his contract. He is to make $3.7 million this season, the last year of a contract extension he signed in 2008.
