Just when you thought the excitement of the NFL offseason was over as we count down the days to the start of Green Bay Packers training camp, news pops up, like the information reported yesterday by Jason Wilde, that Jermichael Finley met with the Packers team doctor Pat McKenzie.
The visit with McKenzie took place yesterday, so we know that there is not a deal in place yet but a deal could be imminent, particularly if McKenzie was able to give Finley medical clearance. However, the meeting with Packers team doctor at least shows that the organization is interested in bringing him back once the medical hurdle is cleared, if it can be, Finley badly wants to return to Green Bay according to a phone interview Wilde did with Finley last week.

For the sake of competitive balance, the rest of the National Football League better hope that Finley is not healthy enough to return to the Packers because an offense with that includes Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy,Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin and Finley will be simply unstoppable. Again, let’s not get ahead of ourselves at this point it’s just another step in the process but the fact that Finley is meeting with the McKenzie definitively shows that there is at least a chance that number 88 once again dons the green and gold.
