NFL Nation's Rob Demovsky examines the three biggest issues facing the Green Bay Packers heading into training camp:

Replacing Finley: The longer tight end Jermichael Finley remains unsigned, the more likely it appears his time in Green Bay -- and perhaps in the NFL -- is over, despite his desire to continue to play. The team's reluctance to clear Finley after last season's neck injury falls in line with its philosophy on similar injuries. Just last month, it cut ties with another player who suffered a neck injury last season, running back Johnathan Franklin.

They still haven't released what Franklin's deal was.

When Richardson had that neck injury, they PUP'd him. This team could sign Finley and just keep him out of action until he's read. But they're not doing that.

Probably because all indications are Jermichael Finley wants to be paid as if he played a Pro Bowl 16 game season last year. If doctors clear him, and Packers doctors say he is at no more risk than any other player, I can't imagine them not offering a reasonable base salary with incentives on a one or two year deal with the latter being optional.

Richardson was also making league minimum.

Franklin got a career ending neck injury... right? ... they shouldn't release info they don't have too, and they don't have to release nothing now...


As for Finley...

1) Why sign a player that you'll have to pay even if they don't play? ...

2) You make it sound like the team decision but it takes two to sign a deal, and Richardson was signed for cheap... and Finley doesn't seem to be willing to sign for cheap, he wants to be paid based on his potential... just like he was last time... unless he's willing to sign a deal that's has very little to nothing guaranteed and based on playing time or stats, it might not be smart to sign him to a deal he'd like until he gets cleared to return by their team doctors...
