Jermichael Finley Rumors: Giants don't appear to be 'mystery team'

Jermichael Finley runs with the ball - Patrick Smith

Jermichael Finley has been cleared by his personal doctor for a return to NFL action. Could that return be with the Giants?

Jermichael Finley has received medical clearance from his doctor to return to the NFL, fueling speculation from some hopeful New York Giants fans that the talented tight end might find his way to the team.

NFL.com reported that Finley has a visit scheduled "with a mystery team" on Friday. The Giants have, per a source, shown some interest in Finley, but the tight end's Friday visit appears to be elsewhere.

SB Nation's Packers web site, Acme Packing Company, points out that Finley has yet to be cleared by the Packers or any other NFL team.

Dr. Joseph Maroon, who cleared Finley, is the neurosurgeon who performed the spinal fusion Finley underwent after his neck injury last season.

While Finley to the Giants has long been speculated about, the Giants have seemed content to let their current group of tight ends compete. Finley, 27, has 223 catches in 70 career games. The Giants' current starter, Adrien Robinson, has no catches and has played two snaps in two seasons. Daniel Fells, out of the league last year, has 92 catches. Kellen Davis has 50 in six seasons. Larry Donnell caught three passes for New York last season.

Finley seems most likely to end up returning to Green Bay, although the Giants and other teams are certain to at least inquire.
