ST. LOUIS (AP) -- 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.

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