McCarthy on Finley, Jolly, Pickett: "No Doors Are Closed Yet"

McCarthy on Finley, Jolly, Pickett: "No Doors Are Closed Yet"

Despite the Packers filling their 90-man roster with the addition of linebacker Shaun Lewis earlier in the week, head coach Mike McCarthy's tune hasn't changed regarding a handful of former Packers players that are still free agents.

During an appearance on the syndicated radio program The Bill Michael Show on Thursday, McCarthy refused to shut down the notion that tight end Jermichael Finley or defensive linemen Johnny Jolly and Ryan Pickett could still come back to Green Bay:

"No doors are closed yet, and we'll see what happens. It's always something that I think you have to be realistic about in the National Football League. I would love to work with all three of those guys again."

Both Finley and Jolly are coming off neck injuries suffered last season, which must be treated with sensitivity, while Pickett is 34 years old and nearing the end of his career.

I hope Jolly can recover and make a contribution this season he just adds a dimension of toughness that the others seem to feed off of. I think Finley will be done in GB, and Picket should most likely retire. GO PACK!!!!

Jolly would be nice to have back. He brought some game when he was unfortunately injured. This could be the most promising rotation on the DL we've had in a decade maybe?
