Free agent TE Jermichael Finley recently mentioned that he will undergo further test on Wednesday and have the results sent to all NFL teams.
Finley remains hopeful that he sign on with a new team at some point, but he admits that the money included in an offer will be a major consideration.
“As long as I wait, you know and I know, guys are going to go down and the money’s going to shoot up,” Finley said, via Tom Pelissero of USA Today. “It’s all a waiting game right now.”
Pelissero still sees the Packers as the most likely destination for Finley in the event he returns from his neck surgery.
Interestingly enough, Finley mentioned that he has received an offer from the Steelers, but the salary wasn’t appealing enough to persuade him to walk away and not collect his $10 million insurance policy.
“Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain’t what it’s supposed to be,” said Finley. “If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that’s a difficult thing that I’m going through with myself.”
Just last week, Finley mentioned that he is feeling great and was hoping to be back in Green Bay next year. Finley has also visited with the Seahawks and Patriots, but Seattle has reportedly moved on.
Last year, Finley appeared in six games for the Packers and caught 25 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns.
