Jermichael Finley Probably Isn't Signing with the Patriots

Raj Mehta-US PRESSWIRE

The Patriots showed some interest in free agent tight end Jermichael Finley, but he's probably going to re-sign with the Packers.

The good news for free agent tight end Jermichael Finley?  He is beginning to return to health.

The bad news for Patriots fans hoping their team will sign Finley?  He's eyeing a return to the Green Bay Packers once he does get clearance to play.  He told Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin exactly that yesterday:

Currently, the only veteran "move" tight end the Patriots have on the roster is DJ Williams,  If the Patriots want competition for Williams, it doesn't appear that Finley will be an option anymore.

Another free agent possibility is Dustin Keller.  The Patriots had him in for a visit prior to the draft, and as of mid-June, were still in contact with him.
