Sometimes teams overpay a player for a season or so based on any number of complicated situations that have occurred. So long as it doesn't significantly affect resigning a key player or a free agent, then it's not a huge deal in a "worse case scenario" type of situation. It's not ideal, but it happens. Every player on the Packers roster is not going to be making exactly what they deserve every season. Some will be paid less (Rodgers, CM3), and others will be paid more than they are worth (Hawk, Finley) in a given season. As long as the ramifications aren't extreme and short-lived, such as one more season in Finley's case IF he doesn't sign an extension, then it's not something the front office is likely to panic about. If it was, I'm sure they would either sign Finley to an extension or cut him. If neither of those things happen, than it's safe to assume Ted Thompson understands Finley is getting overpaid, but is willing to accept it for one more season and then re-evaluate things again next off season. It's always a balancing act.

Finley is just a whipping boy for Packer fans cause he's a million dollar talent with a ten cent hood rat head. Finley's not going anywhere, and I for one am anxious to see what he plays like this year with more time exlapsed from his knew injury. He did have a very good second half of the season in 2012.


I agree with the ten cent head, but he's also going to expect another 7 million per year contract. And while he's very talented I want to see him maximize his potential more. Have a whole season like how he finished it.

It's been over 2 years since his knee injury... and his first year back he proved it's fine. He's not his knee... it's his head, not his knee.

You think playing with a injured shoulder as a TE is nothing worth mentioning? You be tough dude!! lol


Second half of the season his shoulder was better and so were his statistics.

Simply cutting Finley/not paying the $3 million chunk due by the end of March would result in a $3.5 million cap hit - that plus the risk that he goes on to play for somebody else like we wish he would play for the Packers. I really hope we don't just pay the bonus due by end of March, but I kinda like the idea of buckeyepackman above or something similar.

I forgot about his shoulder injury... and you're right about that.

BUT there were games early on, where he didn't even half ass some of his routes. Where teams were putting a LB struggled in coverage on him, and they would be keeping up, because he wasn't trying. Then he would try to do the first half of the route, lose the LB easily... Rodgers saw him open, all he has to do was keep running.... and he would stop. Giving him a bad angle on the catch (where if he kept running it would be a good angle) and the LB would catch up and hit his arms as he tried to catch it making him lose the ball. And it looked more like a lack of effort on his part than injury...

I can understand pain over loading you and making you want to quit... it's happen to me. But if you're in that much pain you shouldn't be taking most of the snaps if you're pain is that bad.

He picked up his effort late, when guys started being silly with him some before and after plays. Seemed to lift his mood and his playing effort and he started trying a heck lot harder.

Also another guy that needs to be watched is Raji. His run clogging looks about the same as it always has been... but he's pass rush when one on one with an OL seems to have dropped a good bit. He's also been battling some off and on injuries, but not seeing him bull rush any one over or close to it any more.
