Packers tight end Jermichael Finley won’t have to wait long to find out if he’s ready to be cleared.

The free agent is headed to Seattle tonight, and will take a physical for the Seahawks tomorrow, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Finley’s condition has been a question since he had surgery to fuse two vertebrae in his neck, but all the recent reports have been optimistic.

If he’s well and signs there, he gives quarterback Russell Wilson another dynamic weapon in the passing game, on a team that barely needed last year’s big addition (Percy Harvin) to win a Super Bowl title.

Finley hinted at this move in January, saying he wouldn’t hesitate to hop on a plane.

And he didn’t.
