One of the yearly rites of passage at NFL training camps is the team fight. By the second full week of practice, team’s finally put on the pads and players are allowed to let out all the pent-up aggression from the long opening week in which it is just boring repetitive walk-thru and team drills. This is when someone plays a bit too far after the whistle and teammates come to blows. Not surprisingly, when this happened at Green Bay Packers camp this week, we found Jermichael Finley in the midst of it, throwing haymakers at Jarvis Reed. Via Fox 11: Several scuffles at Packers practice Okay, we can get a little pushing and shoving, maybe even a takedown, but why do players start throwing punches as if they are going to do anything besides possibly break their hand. Finley is and Reed both are lucky that they aren’t on the PUP-list after that dust-up. If you noticed, there actually three separate scrums following that one play. Assistant coach Kevin Greene gets in the middle of it, and looks ready to go if needed. That is probably less shocking than Finley and his shenanigans.
