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.
Footballguys View: Neck injuries are serious business. If Finley is cleared medically, then teams will be interested because of his athleticism and ability to create mismatches. However, even when signed by a team we’re not expecting Finley to get anything more than a short-term deal because of this neck injury.
