Question what's the price...

I'm fine either way depending on the price.

Finley has great potential, but just plays good to very good level.

I don't want to play for his great potential if he's only bring good to very good level play.


Either way I hope they draft a new TE, not impressed with the guys after Quarless and a couple years from now that TE hopefully be ready (if not sooner).

To be honest, no. I think, on his day, Finley is an absolute monster but there are too many reasons why.

1) Salary expectations - I would be very surprised if him and Ted are on the same page value wise, even on a one year deal like Fatass.
2) Hands - I would very much like someone very sure handed, less athleticism or not.
3) Neck Injury - Scared the shit out of me when it happened, and I wouldn't want to see him get hurt again, medical clearance be damned.

Only sign him to an incentive laden deal for this season, put him on the PUP list until game 9 and let him rehab that neck. He more than likely is not ready to play yet.

Any injured player has the right to come back and prove himself. It isn't like Finley is a poor man, he's made good coin the last few seasons. Both parties should get some insurance on any contract. And after Finley proves he's healthy, pay him top five TE money!

Assuming Jermichael Finley is at no more risk than prior to the injury, ink him for sure.

Put me down as a "no".

Finley has been too inconsistent. He only shaped up performance-wise and attitude-wise in his contract season.

Getting him back now, in addition to probably costing WAY too much (anything more than Quarless gets would be WAY too much), would stunt the progress of Quarless, Bostick, and maybe Stoneburner.

Almost certain now that The Packers will soon sign Finley.

For some reason Ted Thompson just loves to ruffle Texas' feathers.

[wasntme]

When/if Finley is cleared, he is still the most talented TE on the roster.

Quarless will be his solid self, another year away from the injury, his blocking is only going to get better as his knee gets stronger.

Bostick and Stoneburner can only benefit by getting in another year working on Special teams and not being forced into the starting lineup.

Give these guys time to develope if possible.

Ryan Taylor still around, Special teams ace,(need those ST aces)!!

That would be 5 TE's.

The norm as of lately,

Bringing Finley back would maybe change draft strategy.

Ted might look for a project TE to stash on the PS.

No Finley, he is probably looking for a TE in 2nd or 3rd rnd, a guy who could maybe play if forced due to injuries.
