Cortland Finnegan and Brandon Carr were widely considered the top two free agents on the cornerback market. Finnegan was with the Tennessee Titans and Carr of course was with our Kansas City Chiefs.

Finnegan has now reportedly agreed to a deal with the St. Louis Rams. Per ESPN, it's a five-year deal worth $50 million. Keeping in mind the initial numbers reported on a contract are usually agent-driven (i.e. bogus), this makes me wonder what Carr can get.

$8 million per year? $9 million? $10 million or more?

Carr is reportedly visiting the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers are said to have interest as well. Per the Star-Telegram in Fort Worth, the Cowboys were prepared to "roll out the red carpet" for Carr and they hope to sign him as quickly as possible as they're talking contract with his agent. Clearly, the 'Boys don't want him leaving Dallas.

So, when Carr soon signs a new deal, how much will it pay him? Will he surpass Finnegan?
