Packers tight end Jermichael Finley became a major weapon for the Packers last season, but Finley remained a bit of a headache for the Green Bay brass. He was late for a half-dozen meetings and missed curfew the night before the team's 51-45 playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The talented tight end has made it his mission to mature during the offseason.
"I want to be the best tight end in the league, and I want to be a better father, husband and teammate," Finley said. "I want fans to feel they can trust me and believe in me. The young, immature Finley, I thought he was foolish. And the new Finley, I think is going to do the work, do what he's supposed to do and be that player the Packers know I can be."
Already regarded as a top fantasy tight end, the fact that Finley's improving his focus means the sky could be the limit for him. He's got a great quarterback in Aaron Rodgers and is part of an outstanding offense. Few tight ends have the upside Finley has, and even if he ends up falling short of being a fantasy superstar, he should be a solid weekly starter.
