Jermichael Finley may not be in the Packers' future plans
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, tight end Jermichael Finley may not be in the Packers’ future plans with his inconsistency over the past few seasons.
“We hear the prospect of a long-term future in Green Bay for talented but tempestuous TE Jermichael Finley is not looking good at all unless he very soon starts reaching the heights of top-tier NFL tight ends such as Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski. As it stands, while Finley still has his top-tier moments, he continues to fall far short of the Packers’ expectations, with the team definitely in a “wait and see” mode as far as possibly extending the two-year, $14 million deal Finley signed in February. We also hear Finley’s agent, Blake Baratz, hardly helped matters when he genuinely ticked off a lot of Finley’s teammates with his recent tweet that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was not a great leader,” wrote PFW.
Finley is scheduled to be a free agent after the 2013 season. He’ll have this season as well as next season to prove to the Packers that he’s one of the NFL’s best tight ends.
