Jermichael Finley has always been this ball of pent up potential energy that we’ve all been expecting to explode at any moment. That hasn’t happened yet, but if it is going to happen, this is definitely the season for it.
Finley will become a free agent at the end of the coming season and that means that he has a single season to show the league that he’s worth big money.
Last season Finley showed some glimpses that he was ready to turn the corner. He started off with a bang in the opener by snagging seven passes against the eventual Super Bowl runners up. A shoulder injury nagged him all season, but he ended the season with three decent games contributing 61, 70, and 72 yards respectively.
Jermichael is one of the highest paid tight ends in the league right now, and we all know he would like to become the highest paid tight end in the league. Heck! He’d like to become the highest paid player in the league. The point is that if there’s a season for Jermichael to pull it together and focus on being unstoppable, this is the season for that to happen.
The question that comes to mind then is… if Finley can have a breakout year, what will the Packers offense be able to accomplish.
