Finley wants to stay with Packers, but he’s eyeballing Seattle


Packers tight end Jermichael Finley had plenty to say during a visit with PFT Live from Radio Row on Friday.

For starters, Finley said he’ll soon be cleared for contact, after a neck injury that required fusion surgery last year.

Finley will be a free agent on March 11. He wants to stay with the Packers. But he’s willing to leave, if need be.

“I said it once before, I want to be a Packer for life,” Finley said. “But we all know this is a business and the Packers are going to take it as a business but at the same time, I was playing at a high level when I got injured. But at the end of the day, I can go give any team what they need and take them to the promised land, I can guarantee you that.”

Finley said he’s eyeballing a team that already is on the verge of getting to the promised land.

“I mean there’s a couple of teams I would love and would be on the first flight out to play with but like I said the Packers are going to come at me with something and I’m going to go to them first and see what they’ve got and if it’s not I would love to be on the first flight out to good old Seattle,” Finley said.

Whether the Seahawks land Finley or not, the notion that the Seahawks have become a magnet for free agents is very good news for a team that could remain a contender for years to come.
