Josina Anderson at ESPN shared a conversation she had with soon to be free agent TE Jermichael Finley, who says that right now the Packers are keeping quiet about a future with the team.
“The Packers are barely talking to me right now. I know they’re just doing it the Packer way and playing it close to the vest.”
“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.”
Are you open to doing that?
“I’d have to walk for sure, meaning I couldn’t take a pay cut. Maybe I’d restructure if it’s a deal that I like and it makes sense, but I’m not the guy that’s just going to sign anything and let anything pass. I’m not that guy. Other than that, taking a pay cut or restructuring doesn’t sound good to me at this time. I like my deal. I start training in Minneapolis tomorrow and I’m more inspired than ever to start next season off right and be the tight end I know I can be. It’s all business at the end of the day. I just love what I do.”
