Pro Football Talk reported today that the Seahawks are no longer in the running for tight end Jermichael Finley, something that doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
Seattle had been known to show some initial interest in Finley when free agency began.
But since then, there tight end spot has solidified with Zach Miller agreeing to a restructuring of his contract, and the team re-signing Anthony McCoy, who has proven to be healthy, taking part in OTAs after having missed last season with an Achilles injury.
Luke Willson, a backup last season as a rookie, also returns for his second year.
As noted in the blog earlier today, today begins a period where teams can sign free agents without it impacting compensatory picks. So someone may be more willing to sign Finley, whose health is still a question. But it won’t be Seattle.
