It made sense all along that it was the Patriots, a team that has requested anonymity in the past.
Finley's visit came just days after a trip to Green Bay, during which he visited with the medical staff of the Packers to check on his surgically-repaired neck after bruising his spinal cord this past season.
The Patriots allowed Finley to leave town without a contract, so it remains to be seen how much interest they have in him. Perhaps they were waiting until after the June 1 deadline, so he would no longer count in the compensatory draft pick equation.
As a free agent, Finley is allowed to take as many visits as he pleases. With any team, being signed hinges upon a team clearing him.
UPDATE: Ed Werder of ESPN added to the Finley narrative during an appearance on SportsCenter Tuesday:
