Standing at just 5’10” and weighing around 190 pounds, he often faced larger and more physically imposing opponents.

From the moment he stepped onto the field as a professional, Finnegan showcased his fiery demeanor and fierce competitiveness.

Besides being an exceptional football cornerback, Finnegan is known for his on-field incidents.

In 2010, Finnegan paid $5,000 as punishment for throwing Steve Smith from the New York Giants to the ground using his helmet.

The same year, he engaged in a heated altercation with wide receiver Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans. The argument escalated into a full-blown brawl, with punches thrown and both players ejected from the game.

While the incident was controversial, it exemplified Finnegan’s fierce competitiveness and willingness to stand up for himself.
