The Packers re-signed
The wild card there is
Free agent tight end
He's been working out and catching passes. The
The Steelers' neurosurgeon, Dr. Joseph Maroon, performed Finley's surgery in November and cleared him in May, the paper said. Finley said Maroon assured him the chances are "99.9 percent that if I get back on the field, I'll be more protected and in better shape than I was before my injury."
Finley indicated he's gotten some contract offers, but not for the money he's seeking.
Free agent tight end
Finley underwent neck fusion surgery last fall.
"I would want to play until they told me I couldn't play anymore," Rodgers said. "He's younger than I am, and we're competitors. We have to be in our arena doing what we love to do, so it would be near impossible to keep me off the field. I'm sure he feels the same."
Rodgers said he has been in semi-regular contact with Finley throughout his recovery from neck fusion surgery. He said he does not know what doctors have told Finley, but he knows his former teammate wants to keep playing. Finley, who is a free agent, still has his nameplate above his locker at Lambeau Field.
"I've talked to him about him and his psyche," Rodgers said. "I haven't talked to him about his specific injury."
Finley met with the Packers' doctors late last month in Green Bay but has not yet received medical clearance from the team to continue his playing career.
