Day 1 of free agency passed without the Green Bay Packers making a splash in free agency.
For that matter, none of the Packers' own 16 remaining free agents signed with another team either.
On Wednesday, tight end Jermichael Finley is scheduled to make a visit to the Seattle Seahawks, where they'll put him through a medical examination.
"One of the first orders of business, according to the source, was a meeting with the Seahawks doctors, who will examine his surgically repaired neck," writes Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Much of Finley's future will be dependent upon how much any team feels comfortable with clearing him for contact and inheriting the risk of signing a player with an injury history, and a serious one at that.
Center Evan Dietrich-Smith will also be making a trip to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"Dietrich-Smith's agent, Brian Parker, confirmed his client was on his way to Tampa, but he refused to characterize what it meant for the center's future," writes Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It very well could be an opportunity to feel out the Buccaneers to see if it's somewhere Dietrich-Smith would want to go or a move to put pressure on the Packers to meet his demands."
With the Giants also reportedly interested in EDS, the odds are perhaps not looking good for a return to Green Bay, not that signing with the Packers is necessarily being ruled out.
Should the Packers decide to make a push to sign Dietrich-Smith, they'll have to move fast. With several interested parties, he doesn't figure to last more than a few days on the free-agent market.
Also on Wednesday, Packers scouts will be in attendance at several on-campus pro days throughout the nation, looking at prospects for May's NFL Draft.
It's a busy day with workouts being held at Alabama, USC, Michigan, Oklahoma, Boston College, Colorado, Colorado State, Rutgers, North Dakota State, Nevada, Marshall and Eastern Washington.
The Packers may not have a representative at every single location, but they'll be at several and will probably at least receive the measurments from the rest.
