Jermichael Finley, TE, Green Bay Packers Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-5/247 Birthdate: 3/26/1987 School: Texas FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS Depending on what report you read, Jermichael Finely is either leaving the Green Bay Packers because he refuses to take a pay cut or he is staying because the organization will pay him his 2013 salary and will let him play out his contract year. Either way, last season was pretty par for the course from what Finley had done his whole career. But there are two statistics that are glaring to me.

Packers Can Cut Finley With Little Worry

Ranking The Rookies: Jerron McMillian

Fourth-round safety played more than expected last season The Green Bay Packers began the season with 10 rookies on the 53-man roster. That’s a pretty high number – especially for a team than won 15 games the previous year. But GM Ted Thompson didn’t hang on to all those rookies to save money or to make himself look good. He kept them because they could play. In fact, seven...

Packers' Williams never far from his teddy bear

No one around campus at the University of Arkansas is happy to just run into Green Bay Packers tight end D.J. Williams anymore. These days, it's all about the photo-bombing, life-of-the-party stuffed teddy bear that accompanies Williams wherever he goes. It's all about Ted. "Everyone I talk to is more interested in the teddy bear than talking to me," Williams...

Can Packers afford to stay the course?

NFL free agency is not an event in Green Bay. Drama and anticipation don't exist when nearly every offseason concludes with a lack of noteworthy results. Since Ted Thompson took over as general manager of the Packers in 2005, he has mostly sat back and planned for the draft while many of his peers spend tens of millions of dollars on free agents. That's just not the Ted...

Report: Cullen Jenkins Is Open to Reunion with Green Bay Packers

Jenkins...
