According to Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has bulked up this offseason and has gained some weight. Head coach Mike McCarhty is very happy with the way his star tight end looks.
“I think Jermichael looks excellent,” McCarthy said. “He has put weight back on. He’s back where I like to see him, the playing weight that he’s playing with. He’s stronger. He’s playing with more confidence. … I really like the offseason that Jermichael has put together so far.”
It certainly sounds like Finley’s focused heading into this coming season. Now that he’s heading into the final year of his current contract, he’s going to need to have a big year if he wants to be paid like one of the league’s top tight ends.
