If the upcoming MRI on Jermichael Finley's surgically repaired neck brings back promising news, the Seattle Seahawks will have competition for his services.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have had conversations with Finley's agent and might be interested if the tight end is cleared to resume his football career.

Coach Joe Philbin spent four seasons as Finley's offensive coordinator in Green Bay, so there's an obvious connection.

Piggybacking on the Miami Herald report, however, Dave Hyde of the South Florida Sun Sentinel cautions that the Dolphins' level of interest at this time is strictly of the "we-want-more-information" variety.
