Jermichael Finley waiting on clearance, but has trips planned

When free agency opens in 24 hours, and players are able to take visits, most of them will be ready to make a move.

But one is still waiting for a very important piece of information.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley still hasn’t received medical clearance, though he has multiple trips planned.

Wherever he goes, that team will put him through a comprehensive physical, after his recent neck surgery.

But reports have been hopeful throughout, with Packers officials they were “open and optimistic” about his return.

If his neck checks out, Finley should draw plenty of attention in a market that lacks many receiving weapons at the position.
