Former Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is the best remaining player at his position, and there's little question that he can contribute in 2014—provided that he can stay healthy.
In fact, if Finley had entered the free-agent market with a clean bill of health, he would have been one of the finest players available, regardless of position.
Last season, Finley suffered a frightening neck injury in the team's Week 7 win over the Cleveland Browns and had to undergo spinal fusion surgery as a result. But his rehabilitation is apparently going well, as he recently told Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com that "this is the best I’ve felt in this entire crazy process."
If Finley continues to make physical strides, there's no doubt he'll end up on an NFL roster. And the team that ends up signing him should be the New York Giants.
The Giants currently have a question mark at the tight end position so gargantuan that it would make the Riddler jealous. Adrien Robinson is the presumptive starter, but he hasn't caught a single pass in two seasons. Undrafted free agent Xavier Grimble has been the recipient of some offseason hype, but he went undrafted for a reason.
If healthy, Finley would immediately step into the Big Blue starting lineup and amplify the passing attack. An added bonus is that the Giants' new offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo, was formerly the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay, so there is a familiarity between coach and player.
A healthy Finley to the Giants makes too much sense.
