|Will Packers release Finley? -- Fri Jan 18 11:30 pm --|
TE confident his best years are ahead of him
|Jermichael Finley believes his best years in the NFL are still to come. During Finley's five seasons in Green Bay, the 25-year-old Packers tight end has shown momentary flashes that suggest he could rise to the level of belonging in the top tier of players at his position. Other times, dropped passes and inconsistent play have been his undoing. Finley is confident that, if his role increases in Green Bay's offense, he can display his full potential soon. "I don't think I even scratched it," Finley said after cleaning out his locker Sunday. "I've poured it all out, but I don't think consistently for 16 games. You've got to have opportunities, too. I'm not saying they're not coming to me or whatnot, but if I had a chance to show my skills, I think I'd be a little bit better. It's all about trust and communication." (Fox Sports)|
FF Today's Take: The tight end is due eight million dollars next season, but his 2012 yardage and touchdown totals were down from 2011. He has also shown to be susceptible to dropping passes and has displayed a less than ideal attitude at times.
