Following up on Finley's Pats visit

By Mike Reiss

The New England Patriots hosted free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley on a recent visit, as the team continues to explore all options at various positions. ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder tweeted the following on Tuesday morning:

Hearing Jermichael Finley visit to Patriots was exclusively for medical evaluation of his spinal fusion surgery.

Werder's tweet adds some more context to the visit, which sounds less like an on-field tryout and more of a pure medical evaluation.

One would think that if any type of agreement was imminent, there would be an on-field tryout as part of the mix.
