Jermichael Finley will play for Packers in 2013 - [Full Article]

Jermichael Finley's roster deadline day has come and gone. He's still a member of the Green Bay Packers.

Finley announced Monday on Twitter that he's "ecstatic to be back" with the Packers. He was never gone in the first place, but there was an open question regarding if the Packers would keep Finley at his current $8.25 million salary or if they would ask for a pay cut before Finley received a big roster bonus.'s Albert Breer and Ian Rapoport both reported that Finley will not require a pay cut and will not restructure his contract. There were multiple reports that the Packers were wary of paying Finley all his money. If the Packers re-signed Greg Jennings, it's possible that they would have felt differently about allowing Finley to stay at his current salary.

Fantasy Impact: 

Finley has a tantalizing skill set, but drops have been a serious problem throughout his career and he tends to put the blame on some mysterious lack of chemistry with Aaron Rodgers. But over the last seven games, Finley averaged 4.6-57-.14, which equate to TE10 numbers over the course of a full season. HC Mike McCarthy said that Finley was a "different man" after the team's Week 10 bye, so Finley's strong finish may translate to 2013.
