Brian Finneran Will Not Be Re-Signed by Falcons, Career Likely Over

Former Villanova wide receiver Brian Finneran has been informed that he will not be resigned by the Atlanta FalconsFinneran, the star of Villanova's 1997 Atlantic 10 championship team (the team went undefeated in the regular season,) holds most of Villanova's career receiving records and to this day is the only receiver to ever win the Walter Payton Award as the national player of the year in Division 1-AA/FCS.  Recently, Finneran battled back to play two full seasons after knee surgeries caused him to miss the entire 2007 and 2008 seasons. 

In 11 seasons with The Falcons, Finneran caught 236 passes for 3,072 yards and 19 touchdowns. 

Kudos on a good career by one of the all time good guys who ever played at Villanova.
