Jermichael Finley's quest to return to the football field continues at the doctor's office. The free agent tight end will undergo further testing on his injured neck Wednesday and send the results to all 32 teams, Finley told USA Today's Tom Pelissero. Finley recently suggested he was hopeful for a reunion with the Green Bay Packers. However, he told Pelissero the Pittsburgh Steelers have been interested enough to show him the makings of a contract. "Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain't what it's supposed to be," Finley said. "If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that's a difficult thing that I'm going through with myself ..." That "tax-free" money Finely referenced is a $10 million insurance policy he took out that he could cash in if he never plays another snap. The Steelers are an interesting club to monitor. Aside from Finley being an intriguing addition to Ben Roethlisberger's team, Dr. Joseph C. Maroon, the Steelers' team neurosurgeon, performed the tight end's surgery and has cleared him medically -- meaning one less hurdle if compensation changed during training camp.
