There was some doubt a few months ago as to whether or not Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley would ever walk again let alone play football. But after recovering from a spinal injury he suffered in a game against the Cleveland Browns this past season, Jermichael Finley is looking for a contract on the free agent market and is already garnering some attention.
After reports that Seattle may be interested in him, Tom Rock from Newsday is reporting that Antrel Rolle is trying to recruit Finley to join the New York Giants in 2014.
“Actually, we were recruiting each other,” Rolle said Tuesday night at the Thurman Munson awards dinner, where he was being honored. “He said that 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 we don’t have to face him.”
Finley isn’t looking to take a pay cut no matter where he goes, which means his days in Green Bay are likely over. He may not get the contract he wants on the open market, but landing in New York and giving Eli Manning a big weapon seems to be an option that will be considered more and more the closer we get to free agency.
