TE Jermichael Finley to visit Seahawks

The Seahawks just re-signed tight end Anthony McCoy, but they may not be done making moves at that position. According to multiple reports, Seattle will be the first free agency visit for tight end Jermichael Finely, who missed much of last season with a neck injury.

If healthy, Finley would without a doubt be one of the top pass catchers in free agency, but the former Packer suffered a frightening neck injury last October that not only ended his season, but left his career very much in doubt. Finley wrote about his recovery last fall for TheMMQB.com. That same website has a good story updating his progress.

Finley caught 55 or more passes in three of the previous four seasons before 2013, though it’s worth noting that his production wouldn’t likely be the same in Seattle as it was in Packers offense that throws much more frequently.

While Finley isn’t as good of a blocker as Seattle’s current starting TE, Zach Miller, he could provide a less expensive option at the position along with McCoy and Luke Willson if the Seahawks decide they can’t afford to keep Miller, who is due $5.8 million in 2014.
