Jermichael Finley draws interest of Raiders, Steelers

Although the Seattle Seahawks have dropped out of the chase for Jermichael Finley, other teams are lining up to take their place.

The New England Patriotshosted Finley for a visit last Friday. The Packersstill envision the tight end playing in Green Bay if his surgically repaired neck checks out.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Oakland Raiders have also shown interest in Finley.

Rapoport adds that the free agent has visited the Steelers' facility and has been cleared by their team doctor, who also doubles as Finley's doctor.

Finley has never lacked for suitors. The question is whether any doctor besides his own will clear him to play and whether any forthcoming offers will override a $10 million insurance policy that will kick in if Finley never plays football again.
