The Green Bay Press Gazette - [Full Article]

The 25-year-old Jermichael Finley has a contract for 2013 after striking a two-year, $14 million deal with the Packers last offseason.

To get there, however, the Packers will need to pick up the polarizing tight end’s $3.5 million roster bonus due in March before shelling out another $4.45 million for his services next season.

The question general manager Ted Thompson must answer during the offseason is whether he’s willing to pay such a steep price for the 6-foot-5, 247-pound Finley, whose natural athleticism has been tempered during his five years in Green Bay by untimely dropped passes on the field and his outspokenness off of it.

Fantasy Impact: 

Finley's drops were not as big of an issue in 2012, as he was 8th among TE in reception pct (receptions/targets) after finishing 29th in that category in 2011. He gained at least 50 yards in six of his last seven regular season games.
