Free-agent TE Jermichael Finley (Packers) is receiving interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers. It should be noted that the Steelers' neurosurgeon, Dr. Joseph Maroon, performed Finley's surgery in November and cleared him in May. "Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain't what it's supposed to be," said Finley, who has 223 career catches for 2,785 yards and 20 touchdowns. "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 …"
Fantasy Tip: Finley should be on your radar as a TE2 if he signs with a team. Now that he's been cleared, the road back is looking more clear. He's definitely a risk, but one with some upside if he stays healthy and decides to play.

The reality is this injury is going to take some time. We'll continue to watch it," McCarthy said.
