Is Finnegan An Older Version Of Scandrick?

First, a tale of the tape.
Orlando Scandrick is 5-10, weighs 191 pounds and turned 25 on Feb. 10.
Cortland Finnegan is 5-10, weighs 188 pounds and turned 28 on Feb. 2.
As the Cowboys prepare to try to upgrade their personnel in free agency, they need to be comparing the pool of available talent to the players already on the roster, keeping in mind that new additions will be far more costly than the players already on board.
The search for Terence Newman's likely replacement definitely includes Finnegan, who has played his entire career in Tennessee. One of the top two or three cornerbacks available, he will be seeking something like $50 million on the open market...
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
To compete for the playoffs, Dallas has to improve here: Only four sacks against Eli Manning over the past six games!
