Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley is estimated to be much closer to his listed weight of 247 pounds after regaining some bulk this offseason. Finley had dropped to around 235 pounds sometime during or after 2010, when he was aiming to play lighter to be used more as a wide recivier. But Finley's assessment of his earlier seasons saw that he was playing well while also retaining strength in mass, so he decided to go back to that physique. "He's back to where I like to see him, the playing weight that he's playing with," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's stronger. He's playing with more confidence. ... I really like the offseason that Jermichael has put together so far."
Fantasy Tip: Finley is considered a fringe TE1, which could make him a value pick in many leagues. With Greg Jennings gone, Finley should see more targets in a potential walk year.

The Green Bay Packers could have TE Jermichael Finley line up in the slot or at wide receiver this season since the team lost Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Finley could see some more targets this season since Jennings and Donald Driver have left. Finley could be considered a weak No. 1 tight end option leading up to drafts.

The Green Bay Packers have decided to pay TE Jermichael Finley the $3 million roster bonus he was due Monday, March 25, and will keep him on the team. Finely is scheduled to make $8.25 million in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: Finley is one of many weapons the Packers have in their passing game. At this point, Finley should be seen as a strong No. 2 tight end or even a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy drafts next season.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy talked about his hopes for TE Jermichael Finley for 2013, eliminating some of the doubt that Finley will be in a Packers uniform this season. McCarthy praised Finley's second half, said expectations are high, but said his plans for Finley in 2013 will be different. McCarthy said Sunday, March 17, that he is leaning toward simplifying Finley's role and focusing more on the things he really does well, rather than moving him all around.
Fantasy Tip: Finley sounds like he will be a vital part of the Green Bay offense, and with the team losing WR Greg Jennings in free agency, he could be the No. 3 option for QB Aaron Rodgers after WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. He might re-emerge as a No. 1 fantasy TE in 2013 if he can stay healthy.

Blake Baratz, agent for Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley, said he would be willing to listen if the Packers asked Finley to take a pay cut. "I would never just turn my nose up at anything," Baratz said. "I will listen and hear anybody about anything and withhold judgment until I do. I can't say today whether I would, whether I wouldn't, whether it's in Jermichael's best interest, his worst interest. There'd have to be a reason why he would have to take a pay cut. Maybe he would. Maybe he wouldn't. It's all hypothetical until the numbers are there. Is it a one-year deal like it is now? Are we adding years? Are we adding dollars? Are we moving dollars?"

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley said he is uncertain of his future with the team as they have not held discussions with him so far this offseason. "I haven't got a call. I haven't got a text asking me to take a pay cut or to restructure my deal at this point - not at all," Finley said. Finley reiterated he has no intention of taking a pay cut, and he does not appear open to restructuring as well.

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley said he isn't willing to take a pay cut to lower his salary cap number for 2013. He noted he may be willing to restructure his deal, but that would likely require the Packers to sign him to a contract extension beyond the 2013 season. Finley has the third-highest salary cap number on the team this year. Head coach Mike McCarthy appears in favor of figuring out something that would keep Finley with the Packers.
