Jermichael Finley Rumors: Giants' Rolle recruiting free-agent tight end

Jermichael Finley - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Antrel Rolle of the New York Giants is hoping to convince tight end Jermichael Finley to come to New York as a free agent.

With former Green Bay Packers' assistant Ben McAdoo now offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, Packers' free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley said recently that he would "go running" if the tight end-needy Giants called this offseason.

Giants' safety Antrel Rolle is apparently putting on the full-court press to get Finley to do just that. Rolle told reporters that he and Finley watched the Super Bowl together.

"Actually, we were recruiting each other,'' Rolle said Tuesday night at the Thurman Munson awards dinner, where he was being honored. "He said that he would love to be a part of the Giants. Going up against this guy for a number of years now, I said I would love for him to be a part of the Giants so we don't have to face him.''

Finley, 26, played in only six games in 2013 before an injury resulted in his needing spinal fusion surgery. Finley is expecting medical clearance soon that would allow him to play again, but the spinal surgery makes him an obvious risk. Before the injury he was, however, productive for Green Bay, catching 55 and 61 passes in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

The Giants are not expected to keep tight end Brandon Myers, and Bear Pascoe is also a free agent. That leaves them with only unproven youngsters Larry Donnell and Adrien Robinson.
