Huddle Up: Finley is still waiting for a contract offer to exceed the insurance payment he's scheduled to receive, but teams so far are proving to be a bit leery of a big-$$$ commitment.
Posted: 7/9/2014 9:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley will need to check out medically before getting another NFL shot, but if he does get doctor's permission he makes sense in Green Bay; he would also have the potential to be a short-term fantasy factor in a familiar, TE-friendly offense.
Posted: 6/15/2014 7:28pm ET
Huddle Up: The longer Finley remains on the market, the more likely he'll be re-signing with the only team he's ever played for.
Posted: 6/4/2014 4:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Intriguing news that the doctors who operated on Finley have cleared him for football activities. We'll see where he lands, with plenty of fantasy upside in the right situation assuming he's able to get and stay healthy.
Posted: 6/2/2014 11:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The Patriots have a need for another tight end to complement and frequently replace the oft-injured Rob Gronkowski, and if Finley is able to get and stay healthy he could be that guy.
Posted: 6/1/2014 11:39pm ET
Huddle Up: According to Pro Football Talk, It appears it's down to the Packers, Giants and possibly the Patriots vying for the TE's services -- provided, of course, his surgically-repaired neck passes the team physical.
Posted: 5/29/2014 7:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Great initial news for Finley. As for the mystery team, Pro Football Talk is hinting that it could be the Patriots, but Finley also visited with the Seahawks in March. Meanwhile, there also are reports the Giants are interested. Stay tuned . . .
Posted: 5/13/2014 6:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Basically it all still hinges on the medical reports, but don't be at all surprised if a mini-, multi-team bidding war breaks out if and when Finley gets clearance.
Posted: 4/27/2014 10:00pm ET
Huddle Up: A number of teams -- including the Pack -- are following the situation closely and are certainly hoping Finley's clearance comes sooner rather than later.
Posted: 4/13/2014 10:39pm ET
Huddle Up: With Miami head coach Joe Philbin having spent 5 years as the Pack's offensive coordinator, it should be no shock that the 'Fins would be interested in Finley, and if the TE is medically cleared to resume playing, don't be surprised if they're one of the top contenders to land his services.
Posted: 4/8/2014 11:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Here's hoping for the best prognosis for Finley, who was limited to 6 games, 25 catches, 300 yards and 3 TDs this past season with the Pack.
Posted: 3/26/2014 2:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley appears to be nowhere near a return, so until he's actually back on a football field no need holding a fantasy roster spot for him.
Posted: 3/25/2014 10:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley, who was limited to 6 games, 25 catches and 300 yards this past season, should have at least a couple of suitors if he gets a clean bill of health.
Posted: 3/7/2014 11:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley getting clearance could pave his return to Green Bay, as he's an effective weapon in that offense when healthy. Of course, getting clearance also opens the door for other teams to show their interest, but at least it would return Finley to fantasy viability for the coming season.
Posted: 2/25/2014 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Look for the Packers to be in the hunt to retain the TE, who is only a season removed from a career-high 61 receptions for 667 yards and 2 scores in 2012.
Posted: 2/13/2014 8:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Great prognosis for Finley, whose NFL future looked considerably murkier last fall. And even if does return to play, it remains to be seen if he'll be wearing green and gold.
Posted: 2/6/2014 10:17pm ET
Huddle Up: If you're the betting type, look for Finley to being playing elsewhere as long as his recovery cooperates,
Posted: 11/12/2013 11:51am ET
Huddle Up: We'll wait for a more medically trained opinion before writing Finley off, but it certainly doesn't look good for his career going forward.
Posted: 11/6/2013 12:16am ET
Huddle Up: As expected, it was just too much to expect Finley to play again this season. All we can hope for is a return to health in 2014.
Posted: 10/29/2013 7:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Good hear of Finley's determination, and we're hoping for a strong return -- whenever that may be -- but right now, a comeback this season seems farfetched.
Posted: 10/24/2013 4:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Good to see Finley out of the hospital, but chances remain slim that the TE is able to come back and play this season.
Posted: 10/23/2013 6:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully Finley gets good news soon, but it looks like he might be lost for the season.
Posted: 10/23/2013 10:41am ET
Huddle Up: At minimum it doesn't sound like Finley will be back on the field for the Packers any time soon--maybe even not at all the rest of the season.
Posted: 10/22/2013 8:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Good news as far as Finley's career prospects go, but it sounds as if the TE's 2013 season might have reached the end. Combined with Randall Cobb's absence, it knocks Aaron Rodgers value down a peg, but the QB has shown he can produce with reserves -- witness WR Jarrett Boykin's 8-103-TD effort in Week 7. Fourth-year pro Andrew Quarless, who has 28 career catches, is the next TE up.

Huddle Up: This is excellent news after his scary injury. Hopefully the injury is not severe, but it looks like he will be out at least a few weeks.
Posted: 10/21/2013 9:12am ET
Huddle Up: Finley is reportedly waiting on surgery, and as of this morning was still in the ICU. Given that situation, it's unlikely we'll see Finley back on the field any time soon.
Posted: 10/21/2013 12:37am ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully Finley will be okay sooner than later. This was a scary-looking injury. It sounds like he might be out a while, though.
Posted: 10/2/2013 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley has cleared the league's concussion protocols and should be available when the Packers return to action this week.
Posted: 9/22/2013 7:56pm ET
Huddle Up: This could be bad news for next week's availability. Check with him throughout the week.
Posted: 9/22/2013 2:31pm ET
Huddle Up: He received a nasty hit over the middle, so this is unsurprising. Hopefully he will be alright.
Posted: 9/18/2013 8:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley played last week with the same injury, so fantasy owners should expect him to be in the starting lineup Sunday when Green Bay visits Cincinnati. Finley is still a TE1 even with the bad toe.
Posted: 9/14/2013 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley should be in the starting lineup Sunday and he has a good matchup against a Washington defense that gave up 56 yards and a touchdown to the Eagles Brent Celek last week. As long as Finley is good to go, fantasy owners should start him with confidence.
Posted: 9/12/2013 5:28pm ET
Huddle Up: We'll know more after Friday, but it could come down to a game-time decision with Finley on Sunday morning.
Posted: 9/12/2013 9:58am ET
Huddle Up: Finley showed signs of living up to the preseason hype during the Packers' Week 1 loss to San Francisco. Sounds like Finley's fantasy owners will need to keep tabs on his practice time and injury status heading into Week 2.
Posted: 9/11/2013 4:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Finley might not need to practice to play, but the longer he sits, the more troublesome his status will be for Sunday's game. Keep an eye on this situation.
Posted: 8/21/2013 9:32am ET
Huddle Up: Finley seems to have accepted that he's not a wide receiver, bulking up and embracing his tight end role in Green Bay's offense. In turn, Aaron Rodgers is relying more on Finley--especially with Jordy Nelson out and Randall Cobb nicked. Many a fantasy owner has been burned by Finley's inconsistency, but there is still plenty of upside to his role in a high-scoring offense.
Posted: 8/8/2013 10:24am ET
Huddle Up: Finley has been both a fantasy rock star and a huge disappointment during his tenure in Green Bay, but it sounds like at the moment he's trending back towards "rock star". With both Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb currently dinged up, Rodgers would love to have that version of Finley at his disposal; so too would fantasy owners--at least those who haven't been burned by Finley to the point of no longer trusting him.
