Jermichael Finley indicates his desire is to sign with the Green Bay Packers

Finley indicates on Twitter he's still looking to re-sign with the Packers, or even already has. He had a medical evaluation Wednesday, and could be asking the team to look at the results. The Steelers' neurosurgeon, Dr. Joseph Maroon, has cleared him, and the Steelers offered him a contract.

While it's not the same as a formal announcement, it would appear free agent tight end and Steelers target Jermichael Finley could be re-signing with the Green Bay Packers, the only team he's played for in his six-year NFL career.

Another possibility, as suggested by Acme Packing Co. writer Aron Yohannes, is Finley had a medical evaluation done on Wednesday, his Tweet could be interpreted that he's asking the Packers to review those results.

Finley had a flirtation period with the Steelers, who reportedly had made him at least one contract offer. A $10 million insurance policy he took out after suffering a significant spinal cord injury in 2013 would be payable if he did not play in four games by Oct. 20 of the 2014 season.

There's no mention of money anywhere at the time of publication, and no dollar amount or contract length for the alleged offer Pittsburgh made him was available.

Reports had suggested a return to Green Bay was the most likely scenario for the talented receiving tight end. He was the Packers' third round draft pick out of Texas in 2008, and has 20 touchdowns in 70 career games with Green Bay.
