Vikings Free Agency 2012: Cortland Finnegan A Target For Minnesota?

The Minnesota Vikings need to upgrade their corner back position, and a hot commodity is about to hit the free agent market, Cortland Finnegan. According to reports, the Tennessee Titans will use their franchise tag on free safety Michael Griffin and that decision will make Finnegan, a former All-Pro selection, a free agent.

The Vikings, however, will need to decided whether they'd like to upgrade at corner back or wide receiver via free agency. At the right price, Finnegan would be a solid move for Minnesota, which ranked 26 out of 32 NFL teams defending the pass.

Other name to watch out for is Brandon Carr, who may or may not be franchise tagged by the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are deciding between tagging Carr or wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
