Steelers | Showing interest in Jermichael Finley

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 10:06:19 -0700

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.

NFL | Jermichael Finley to have X-rays, MRI

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 15:47:38 -0700

Free-agent TE Jermichael Finley (neck) will have X-rays on his neck Thursday, April 10, and will undergo an MRI exam within two weeks. The scans will then be looked at by Dr. Joseph Maroon, the neurosurgeon who performed the spinal fusion on Finley last year. Finley hopes to share the results with interested teams if they are positive. The Green Bay Packers, Finley's former team, are one of the interested parties, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Finley is unlikely to make a huge impact next year if he lands on a team. The odds may still be pretty low that he actually signs with a team this offseason, and that will depend largely on the results of his tests in the coming weeks.

NFL | Jermichael Finley still not cleared?

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 08:43:10 -0700

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said free-agent TE Jermichael Finley (neck) still isn't medically cleared to continue his playing career. Finley reportedly failed his physical with the Seattle Seahawks several weeks ago, and he's been working regularly with trainers in Minnesota and Arizona this offseason. "He had a serious injury. I know there is a lot of excitement, based on what I've been told. I haven't seen him work out, but I guess his workouts have gone really well. He's in great shape. I know he feels good. The reality is this injury is going to take some time. We'll continue to watch it," McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: Finley's injury was very serious and could still be career-threatening. If he does sign with a team, he'll be a huge risk, both in reality and for fantasy football gamers.

"It's great to hear that he's training and feels great and that's a big part of rehab," McCarthy said. "You feel good and everything, but you have to trust the information that's available to the doctors. I think you have to really be smart with those types of injuries."

Jermichael is a rare breed that creates a mismatch for defenses. Whenever you have a player that can do that he is a valuable asset."
