This is obvious great news for Finley seeing as his injury could have been career-ending given that it required a spinal fusion procedure.
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 contract.
We have Finley tentatively listed as the No. 71 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list
