Jermichael Finley tweets he is heading back to Green Bay Packers

Some had considered Finley a possible answer to the Giants' tight end question.

If you hadn't already iven up on the idea of tight end Jermichael Finley signing with the New York Giants, it look as if you should now. Finley indicated Thursday on Twitter that he is heading back to the Green Bay Packers.

Finley has not yet officially re-signed with the Packers. He has yet to even be cleared to play. Both, however, could happen this afternoon.

Several months ago Finley praised new Giants' offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, formerly of the Packers, and said "I guess I'd go running" if the Giants called.

It appears they never really did, at least not seriously. For the past couple of months the Giants have not been mentioned among the possible landing spots for Finley.

The Giants, of course, don't have a proven pass-catcher at tight end heading into the 2014 season. Many thought the 27-year-old Finley, coming off neck surgery, would be a fit once he was cleared to play. Finley has 223 career catches in 70 games covering six NFL seasons.
