12:38 PM ET 02.28 | It's not unusual for Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley to vocalize whatever's in his mind at a given moment. Especially when microphones and tape recorders are involved. In this sense, then, it's not shocking when Finley, speaking with Josina Anderson of ESPN on Wednesday, said he wouldn't take a pay cut if the Packers were to ask. It should be noted that Green Bay hasn't yet inquired about such things. Finley told Anderson the team is "barely" speaking with him at the moment. Finley is entering the final year of a two-year, $14 million contract, which Green Bay offered as a sort of relatively inexpensive, short-term proving ground before having to decide whether or not to offer the talented yet inconsistent tight end a longer, more lucrative deal -- though, as ESPN's Kevin Seifert points out, Finley's contract against the salary cap is still the team's third-highest in 2013. On March 27, Finley is owed a $3 million roster bonus and the report notes that the Packers could wipe $8.25 million off their books by parting ways with him.
