Packers tight end Jermichael Finley told PFT Live during Super Bowl week that he’d be ready to hop a flight to Seattle if he made it to free agency.
He did. And now he’s hopped a flight out of Seattle.
Per multiple league sources, Finley’s visit to Seattle ended on Thursday. It’s unclear whether an agreement will be reached. The primary purpose of the visit, we’re told, was to allow the Seahawks assess his current health.
Last year, Finley suffered a season-ending neck injury that required surgery. He explained in late January that clearance was expected in a matter of three or four weeks. He has not yet received a full, unequivocal green light, we’re told.
It’s unclear when Finley will receive clearance to return to football, and if so whether a team will be comfortable putting him back on the field. Finley nevertheless is committed to continuing his career, and we wish him the best as he attempts to get there.
