Packers head coach Mike McCarthy continues to be blown away by how well tight end Jermichael Finley has played during training camp.
“He’s having his finest training camp, I think it’s clear-cut,” said McCarthy, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements says that Finley was great during the offseason well.
“It’s not just this camp, the whole spring,” Clements said. “He’s been outstanding. He’s been working hard. I think he’s improved his blocking tremendously. He’s become a more detailed route runner. He’s finishing plays.”
It sounds like Finley is will to do anything to help the Packers.
“We’re asking him to do the dirty work again that he wasn’t asked to do as much the last two years and I think he’s doing a good job of it,” McCarthy said.
With Finley now in the final year of his current contract, he has to be willing to do whatever it takes to earn his next deal.
