After coming out of retirement to make a Super Bowl run with the Carolina Panthers last season, veteran cornerback Cortland Finnegan is back at it with the New Orleans Saints. Camo Titans Jerseys .Finnegan, 32, signed with New Orleans on Friday, according to a league source.The Saints have had injury issues at cornerback throughout the summer. However, veteran starter Keenan Lewis told ESPN that he intends to be close to 100 percent healthy by Week 1 and wants to avoid the short-term injured reserve list.Lewis, who has practiced only once during training camp while trying to recover from a lingering hip injury, said he doesnt want to rush back and never get fully healthy. He said that was the case last year, when he played in only six games with zero starts and had multiple surgeries on his hip.I dont want to be back on the field just to say, Hes out there. Im getting back to my form. If it takes a little time, then thats what its gotta be, said Lewis, who said his current injury is a strain, as opposed to the tear he suffered last year.Im gonna be back to the old Keenan real soon, said Lewis, who said he was compelled to speak up after seeing speculation on social media that he was injury-prone or might be done for the season. I just want to be to the point where I can play lock-down ball and I can last and not have major setbacks. ... I feel like players sometimes rush their situation. I tried that last year.Lewis also stressed that, even though they dont see me out there, that doesnt mean Im not working.Its unclear if the Saints agree with Lewis timetable or if theyre growing impatient and preparing for other options. But Lewis said he wont be helping himself or the team unless hes playing at 90 percent or above. And he doesnt want to be just a rotational backup.Im itching to pull the trigger on myself. But Ive got to be smart, Lewis said. If they want me to build my way back in, thats fine with me. But not at 60, 70 percent.I dont mind no competition. I dont care who they bring in.Finnegan offers a veteran option for the Saints, who have suddenly become extremely young at the cornerback position.Without Lewis, the Saints top five cornerbacks would be second-year pros Delvin Breaux, P.J. Williams and Damian Swann, plus undrafted rookies Ken Crawley and DeVante Harris.Williams, Crawley and Harris have been impressive this summer -- and Finnegan might have some trouble passing them up in the pecking order. But none of those three has ever played an NFL snap.Finnegan, 32, spent his first six seasons with the Tennessee Titans before playing with the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins and Panthers. The 5-foot-10, 190-pounder has 19 career interceptions, including one in Carolinas playoff opener last season.Finnegan, who earned a reputation as one of the leagues dirtiest players in various national polls and articles early in his career, has always been feisty and physical -- as was infamously displayed in a 2010 fight with Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson.Finnegan mostly served as a slot cornerback in Carolina last season. The Saints interest in Finnegan was first reported by the NFL Network. Black Titans Jerseys . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson.
