We just reported that the Green Bay Packers are uncomfortable with tight end Jermichal Finley’s contract, but clearly they’re comfortable enough to pay him a $3 million roster bonus, since they didn’t release him before 4 PM eastern time today.
Finley announced on Twitter that he isn’t going anywhere, he’ll be playing for the Packers in 2013.

Finley is now scheduled to earn a total of $8.25 million this coming season. I do wonder if the Packers will ask him to restructure his contract to create more cap space.
