Steelers are desperate. They'd clear Sterling Sharpe if they thought it'd help a tad.

Mike Florio said:
From the moment agent Blake Baratz characterized tight end Jermichael Finley as facing what amounts to a choice between taking Door No. 1 and a $10 million no-tax disability policy or Door No. 2 and returning to football for whatever pre-tax salaries and bonuses he can muster, it all seemed to be a little too...


In this case, Finley apparently has received multiple offers from the Steelers, whose team doctor performed the spinal fusion surgery on Finley and cleared him to play earlier this year.

“Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain’t what it’s supposed to be,” Finley recently told USA Today.

I had to laugh at this one a little. Pittsburgh gave him a low offer? You don't say? Not Pittsburgh. :)

Finley has been awfully Packers sweet here lately. You have to smile knowing he knows the Packers are the one team that really values (overvalues) him. If he could get nearly 8 million out of them last year, he's got to think Green Bay is the best possible place to get the money he's seeking.

As tight lipped as the Packers org is, I'm now thinking Finley has been cleared by our doctors, also...but he has a gag order on that as they try and figure out how much to pay him with Randall and Jordy looming. Finley's old money was allocated to Julius.

If Finley truly is cleared, will the Packers pay him as he desires?

Finley would have to take an incentive laden deal on production and duration. I just don't want to watch the guy be gurneyed off the field again.

I don't know how much money Finley thinks he's going to get. He's only had 2 full seasons in his career and they didn't exactly live up to expectations. Coming off such a serious injury he's not going to get a long term deal nor will he get the 7m average he got 2 years ago. He's going to have to either retire or deal with a low 1 year prove it deal most likely.

This is total conspiracy type stuff but I wouldn't discount this possibility...

I think most NFL observers look at the Packer TE situation as disastrous. Finley is still out there cleared by a Steelers doctor meaning he may not be able to cash his policy because he has been cleared to play and received an offer according to Jermichael himself.

It would make sense that Finley and his camp believe the Packers have nothing at TE so they feel they can extort a better offer from us because of this.

So, what do the Packers do? All this effusive praise is released to the media on Richard Rodgers. Aaron and Mike McCarthy gushing about him. That is the one guy that Jermichael would have no personal knowledge about as to his skill level. So, now we hear stories liKe Richard Rodgers may start giving the impression we're okay at TE when that may be the furthest from the truth, all to get Finley to the idea we're good without him and moving on unless he takes next to nothing from us financially.

This team loves Finley. It is funny the door has not been shut and not only not shut but it seems the Packers would love to have him back unlike many others they say similar door not being shut things about. It's gotta be a money issue...Finley wants a bunch because he feels he's fine and ready to roll and every other NFL team cautious.

He may be back after all...I now believe he will more than I have at any other point in this process.

I am still looking forward to 1 L.A.F.

It's time to move on and to bring in the young crop of tight ends. I don't mean this as a slight towards Jermichael in any way but like others, I would just rather not see him get taken off the field on a stretcher again, possibly amounting to an even worse injury he suffered this past season. The struggle the Packers *might* endure at tight end this season are worth not seeing this possibly happen.

Sign him and trade him for Jimmy Graham. Heck, throw in Lyelra as well if that is what it takes.

As long as it has nothing to do with a 1st round pick...we need that 10% chance we might get a star!

You should probably call Baratz and Finley then because they are doing a really shitty job: admitting they have an offer, triggering speculation Finley can't collect on the policy, and admitting it's the only offer, and that it's shit.
