Do the Kansas City Chiefs have any interest in Jermichael Finley?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The former Green Bay Packers tight end is hoping to get good medical results soon.

Earlier this offseason the Kansas City Chiefs were linked to free agent TE Jermichael Finely. Finley hasn't played since an October 2013 neck injury but hopes to be cleared soon. According to ESPN, Finley has x-rays and MRIs coming up that will shed light on his medical status. Any team interested in Finley will want to see that medical information before agreeing to anything so that's an important step.

Way back before free agency started, the Chiefs were rumored to be one of the teams keeping an eye on him. We don't know if that is the case, was the case or still is the case. A month is a long time in the NFL.

Finley's connection to the Chiefs comes via his former team the Packers, who once employed a man named John Dorsey, now the Chiefs GM. More importantly, there's a potential role he could fill at tight end, where the Chiefs have Anthony Fasano, Sean McGrath and Travis Kelce.

The Chiefs need someone like Kelce or Finley to stretch the middle of the field. Kelce told me last week that he hopes to be the guy who can become a threat over the middle of the field and take the safety's attention away. Whether it's Kelce or someone like Finley, that's an aspect of the passing game they need next season. That was noticeably missing last season from the Chiefs offense, and I'm sure Alex Smith wouldn't mind having another weapon over the middle of the field.
