Tight end Jermichael Finley is still trying to find an NFL team for the 2014 season, despite his ability to collect on a $10 million insurance policy if he simply walks away from the game of football. That's awesome to see, because it means he has drive for the game (though it's worth noting he could always earn more than $10 million if he gets a big contract), but basically nobody knows if he'll be able to play again, or if a team will take a chance on him. That's because Finley had his C-3 and C-4 vertebrae fused a month after suffering a spinal contusion back on Oct. 20 in a game against the Cleveland Browns. Finley can run, Finley can catch and Finley can out-perform most tight ends that have come into the league of late. But whether or not he can be hit without being in significant danger of re-injury to his spine. When you're talking spine, the discussion is incredibly serious, especially when it related to a high-impact game like football. But Finley, who has 2,785 yards and 20 touchdowns in six seasons in the NFL, is still drawing interest. Every team in the league that could be interested in a tight end will do their due diligence and take a look Finley's way. You can now count the San Francisco 49ers among those teams.
