you're probably right. Good thing Aaron comes off the books soon too you know with him being the same age as Jennings and all. 30 year olds are bad!

How much would we save by cutting Finley?

No matter what happens, the Packers must count the prorated portion of his modest $1 million signing bonus against their 2013 salary cap, or $500,000. But when he leaves their roster via trade or waivers, his $4.45 million base salary, $500,000 roster bonus and $300,000 workout bonus all go away.

I must be in with the minority who thinks there is more discontent with Finley among fans rather than in the locker room.

SMH... For you to make that comparison is ridiculous. I understand you are trying to make me look like an idiot, but Thompson has drafted Murphy, Jennings, Jones, Nelson, Cobb. The guy does not miss on WR's. I would rather save my 5 years and 40+ million and let Thompson do his work. If he will give a discount and we could get him on a 3 year deal, great... but I don't see that. It is VERY rare for Thompson to give one of his guys a big contract that is longer than what he is worth. I just don't see it happening.

I think its time to let go of Finley. We have enough play makers around Rodgers that we'll still be a great team without him. Plus with our running game coming on, we could find a better all around TE that can block better than Finley to help support the ground game even more.

I am definitely in the minority, but give me Finley for 1 year and 6 million over Jennings at 5 years and 40+ million. Use the other 35 million at other positions of need.

Eh, that money can go towards procuring Rodgers and Clay or procuring a lineman or RB. It's clearly not an either-or proposition. Odds are high they're both gone.
