This report comes on the heels of one earlier in the week from USA Today that Finley had undergone an MRI and CAT scan with the results being sent to all 32 NFL teams, including the Packers.
Nothing would appear imminent, but it makes sense that the more time that passes, the more healing could potentially take place in Finley's surgically-repaired spinal column.
The Packers may be taking one last look at Finley's medical records before considering whether to bring him in before the start of training camp.
Currently, the Packers have one spot open on their 90-man offseason roster ever since releasing injured running back Johnathan Franklin nearly a month ago.
Player report to training camp in Green Bay in just over a week, Friday July 25 with the first practice to take place the following day.
The Steelers apparently made multiple offers to Finley earlier in the offseason, which the free agent tight end says he hasn't yet accepted.
"Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain't what it's supposed to be," Finley is quoted as saying. "If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that's a difficult thing that I'm going through with myself …"
Finley has a disability insurance policy worth $10 million.
