Green Bay Packers Need to Part Ways With Jermichael Finley

+Read full article

(Brace Hemmelgarn/USA Today Sports)

The Green Bay Packers were eliminated from the playoffs earlier than they would have liked to last weekend when they fell to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round and they enter the offseason with plenty of questions surrounding which players will be back for the 2013 season–especially when it comes to tight end Jermichael Finley.

If Finley does return to the Packers for the 2013 season, it won’t be cheap as the tight end is scheduled to make around $8.25 million between salary and bonuses–which is a lot of money to pay up for a player that was some-what of a disappointment in 2012 in the passing game. Finley has been running his mouth over the last couple of years about how he should be considered one of the league’s top pass-catching tight ends, but it was no secret this past season there was plenty of frustration on the organization’s end for his lack of production.

Despite setting a career high of 61 catches, Finley recorded just 667 receiving yards and only found the end zone twice. This is obviously one of those difficult situations considering Finley has shown plenty of potential at times, but he’s certainly not worth the type of money the Packers would have to pay him to be on board for the 2012 season.

Plus, Green Bay already has plenty of effective weapons for Aaron Rodgers to throw the ball to in the passing game–so they could easily find a replacement if they did end up parting ways with Finley.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.
