“Yeah I did,” Rolle said, via the New York Daily News. “Actually we were recruiting each other, because he said he would love to be a part of the Giants. Going up against this guy for a number of years now, I said I would love for him to be a part of the Giants so I wouldn’t have to face him. He’s an extreme talent. He’s an exceptional guy and more importantly I know he’s a fiery guy. I think that’s something we can definitely use on the offensive side of the ball.”
Finley, 26, will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming weeks and has said that he has no intention of taking a reduced salary, despite concerns regarding his future health.
It will be interesting to see what the Packers elect to do regarding Finley given that they don’t have a clear-cut replacement on their roster.
It’s not often that quality young tight ends are available, but his fusion surgery will most likely be a concern that could force him to sign a one-year incentive based contract, even though he expects to sign a long-term deal.
Finley also mentioned that he would be interested in playing for the Seahawks, so it appears as though he is entertaining all options ahead of free agency.
We have Finley tentatively listed as the No. 71 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
