The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports free agent Jermichael Finley (neck surgery) is "at least two months" and "maybe several months more" from signing a deal with an NFL team.

Sources tell reporter Bob McGinn that Finley's early-free agency visit to Seattle ended in the Seahawks telling Finley to "stay in touch," with hopes that the passage of time would "presumably mean additional healing" for his bruised spinal cord. Finley underwent spinal fusion surgery on November 14. His market has been silent since the Seattle visit. It's more interesting than noteworthy that Finley would collect a $10 million tax-free insurance policy were he to never play football again. Finley turns 27 years old next week.
