We’re a little over a month before the start of free agency. Teams can’t talk to other teams’ players yet, but players can do whatever the hell they want. And New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle is trying to get Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley to join his crappy club.
Antrel Rolle said at the Thurman Munson Awards Dinner that he watched SB48 with Jermichael Finley and was recruiting him to be a Giant.

That would be a great fit for Finley. Playing with Manning Face, Eli Manning Face, the guy who led the league in picks last season.
Also, the New York media microscope. Great place for a guy who hasn’t exactly been known for keeping his mouth shut during his career.
Money will ultimately talk, though.
That, and whether doctors clear Finley to return from spinal fusion surgery. Last week, Finley said he expects to be cleared for contact in about three weeks.
He also said he wants to remain a Packer for life. He also said he wouldn’t mind playing for Seattle.
Like we said, money is obviously going to be the deciding factor for Finley. In all likelihood, that means he won’t be back in Green Bay.
