01:00 PM ET 03.25 | Jermichael Finley has a roster bonus coming his way soon if the Packers choose to keep his status quo. Green Bay has until 4 p.m. today to release Finley. If he stays on past the deadline, he will receive an additional $3 million tomorrow. The offseason began with rumors surrounding Finley's future with the team. Although the tight end publicly stated he wanted to remain with the team "forever," his contract continues to strain the salary cap in Green Bay. Finley is set to make $4.5 million in base salary for 2013. Along with the roster bonus, that's not exactly an appealing paycheck for the Packers to give a player with just two touchdowns last season.

All of a Sudden Green Bay doesn't think much of their free agent and former receivers, were they the reason they got bounced out of the Playoffs?

They gave this turd bucket the money. So your paying a guy 8.5 mil to play 16 games because after that he bolts as a free agent so they dam well better hope this stiff can catch the ball, something that alluded him last year.

Nope, it was their lousy defense. However, if you need to spend money on D, you need to get rid of dead weight on O. Finley is dead weight. Jennings was not but getting older and couldn't afford to keep him, Jones, and Nelson.
