NFL Free Agent Rumors: Mutual interest between Seahawks, Jermichael Finley

Free agent tight end Jermichael Finley is leaving Seattle today without a contract, but that doesn’t mean a deal between Finley and the Seahawks is dead – not at all.

Seattle, in need of a tight end, has put Finley towards the top of their wishlist and the interest between the two sides is mutual. That said, Finley still needs medical clearance and that could be a reason that no deal has been struck yet.

Jermichael Finley is leaving Seattle today & there is mutual interest in him signing with #Seahawks, per source. Waiting for clearance tho

Finley is among the best tight ends in the NFL when healthy, however, after suffering a near-career ending injury this past season there are question marks as to how Finley will perform moving forward. Will he be the player he once was? Or will he be understandably hesitant when going across the middle?

It sounds as if the two sides still are interested in working on a deal, so we’ll keep our eyes on the situation in the coming days.
