Cornerback Cortland Finnegan was told by the St. Louis Rams organization that he will be released, according to multiple reports.

Finnegan preempted the story on his personal twitter page, announcing a goodbye to Rams fans.

"St.Louis thank you for your letting me play for a classy franchise and coach fish nothing but love thank you all. #Motivation," Finnegan wrote.

Two offseason ago, Finnegan signed a five-year, $50 million to be with the Rams. After a solid 2013 season, he had a disastrous 2014 campaign.
