Report: Seahawks No Longer Have Interest In Free Agent TE Jermichael Finley

 

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Seahawks are no longer an option for free agent TE Jermichael Finley, even though he has finally received medical clearance.

  • Florio adds that Seattle “decided to pull the plug on efforts to sign Finley.”

A few months ago, Finley took a free agent visit to Seattle where he underwent tests on his surgically fused spine, so it appeared as though they could be the favorites to sign him once healthy.

Finley’s agent mentioned last week that he was set to visit a “mystery” team on Friday, but no one has been able to confirm which team he met with.

  • Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network points out that Finley faces a tough decision given that he can cash a $10 million insurance policy if he never plays again.

Earlier in the day, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston mentioned that the Patriots have “all eyes are on the tight end spot” and could be consider free agent options such as Finley or Dustin Keller.

The Packers are believed to be an option for Finley as they could still use some help at tight end, and are more than familiar with his ability and the kind of injury he’s coming off of.

The Giants have also been mentioned as a potential landing spot given that they too could use some more depth at tight end and they even brought in former Packers coach Ben McAdoo to run their offense.

We have Finley listed as the No. 1 player in our recently updated Top 50 – Best Available Free Agents list.
