In the days preceding the Super Bowl, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley told PFT Live that he hopes to get clearance in the coming weeks following neck surgery.

The clearance has not yet come. Per a league source, it could be coming very soon.

Finley’s primary doctor and his neurosurgeon currently are out of the country, but they will return on Friday. The goal is to get Finley cleared by Tuesday, so that he can participate in free agency when it opens.

If Finley is healthy, there should be a decent demand for his services. Before he can learn the extent of the demand, he needs to be cleared.
