Last week, free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley made good on his vow to hop a plane to Seattle if free agency opened and he didn’t have a deal to stay in Green Bay. But the Seattle trip has come and gone, and Finley remains unsigned.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Finley’s situation remains unchanged. While Finley believed he’d receive medical clearance by the end of February, medical clearance hasn’t come — and there’s no timetable for it.
Finley suffered a serious neck injury during the 2013 season. He underwent spinal fusion surgery, which in many cases is career ending. Optimism remains that Finley will be cleared to play, eventually.
For now, several teams are interested, but Finley remains in a holding pattern.
