Jermichael Finley, a free agent, has a $10 million life insurance policy. However, the tight end still wants to play football and bypass that money.
Finley will have more tests on Wednesday and will send the results to every team in the NFL. He hopes that the results will give him a shot to get a job next week when most of the training camps start.
While the Green Bay Packers are the likely landing spot, the Pittsburgh Steelers are definitely interested. They have reportedly made Finley an offer.
“It’s all a waiting game,” Finley said. “Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain’t what it’s supposed to be. If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that’s a difficult thing that I’m going through with myself.”
Finley has received little interest, as he is recovering from a severe injury. In week 7 of last season against the Cleveland Browns, he suffered a bruised spinal cord.
He made $8 million last season, and feels like he’s worth that much in a new contract. In his career with the Packers, he has 223 receptions for 2,785 yards and 20 touchdowns in 70 regular season games.
He has 15 receptions for 241 yards in four playoff games.
Finley has been with the Packers since the 2008 season.
