ST. LOUIS (AP/CBS) - 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.

CBS Sports reported that Finnegan will receive $50 million over five years from the Rams. Of that, he will likely receive $26.5 million in guaranteed money and $33 million over the first three years.

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.

He was originally drafted by Fisher in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL draft while Fisher was coaching the Titans.

Another Tennessee player, defensive end Jason Jones, was visiting Rams Park. Fisher said the Rams were recruiting Jones.
