Packers | Jermichael Finley expendable

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 11:17:23 -0800

The Green Bay Packers have plenty of tight ends returning next season, which will make TE Jermichael Finley expendable. TEs Brandon Bostick, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree, Ryan Taylor and DJ Williams will all be back. Quarless and Williams are much more effective blockers than Finley, too, and head coach Mike McCarthy is hoping for a more formidable running game in 2013. Scouts say Finley still is impressive and is able to stretch the field, but he doesn't put fear in opposing defenses like he once did. "But I didn't see him like a couple years ago where you worried about him all the time," one personnel director said. "I don't see that mismatch ability like I used to. Drops. Inconsistent routes. Not disciplined."

Other scouts note his inconsistency if he knows he's not being involved in the offense. Scouts see lack of flexibility with Finley, and one theory is that the stiffness in his hips and knees caused him to drop a large amount of passes. Finley has struggled to sink his hips and make sharp cuts to get open. "His routes aren't polished to that level," one scout said. "If you run a great route, you get open, but that doesn't seem to matter to him. He's playing more like he's on the playground."

Packers | DJ Williams taking away reps from Jermichael Finley

Tue, 28 Aug 2012 11:23:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley (concussion, thigh), who hasn't played in a preseason game, is losing some looks to TE DJ Williams in practice. Williams is more versatile than Finley, and he can even line up in the backfield. "We kind of made a mistake the Super Bowl year," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "We probably had too much for Jermichael because then we lost him and we had to really shift gears there in-season and we kind of sputtered."

Dolphins | Questions at tight end

Fri, 16 Mar 2012 10:22:52 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin must figure out if TE Anthony Fasano can fill the starting tight end role in his West Coast system. In Philbin's offense, the tight end position plays an important role as it serves as the primary checkdown for quarterbacks.

If Fasano isn't the answer, the Dolphins may look to the free-agent market to add TE Dallas Clark (Colts) or Joel Dreessen (Texans); they could also address the position during the NFL Draft, looking to find a tight end capable of being a threat in the seam. With Philbin's ties to the Green Bay Packers, the team could look to trade for one of the Packers' five tight ends, possibly DJ Williams.

Packers | Five tight ends fighting for primary backup job

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 21:46:51 -0700

Green Bay Packers TEs Tom Crabtree, Spencer Havner, Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor and DJ Williams are fighting for the primary backup job to starter TE Jermichael Finley. In the preseason game Friday, Aug. 26, against the Indianapolis Colts, Cratbree and Havner did not record any catches. Taylor posted three grabs for 24 yards and a score to lead the group, while Quarless recorded a 16-yard grab on his only touch. Williams also had an eight-yard catch.

Packers | Deep at tight end

Sat, 20 Aug 2011 21:22:07 -0700

The Green Bay Packers are deep at tight end and TE Jermichael Finley is the only lock for a roster spot at this point. TEs Andrew Quarless, DJ Williams, Ryan Taylor, Tom Crabtree and Spencer Havner are all options for roster spots. Letting Quarless go would hurt, as he's the team's second-best athlete at the position, and losing Crabtree would hurt, as he is the team's best blocking tight end.

Packers | Jermichael Finely entering contract year

Sun, 15 May 2011 23:37:45 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley is entering the final year of his contract with the team. There is some speculation the Packers may not be willing to make a long-term investment in him, which is likely to be costly. However, head coach Mike McCarthy may not be willing to let him walk after spending all of last offseason building the offense around Finley. The Packers did draft pass-catching TE DJ Williams in the fifth-round.
