The Green Bay Packers will pony up the $3-million roster bonus due
tight end Jermichael Finley today. It means Finley will be with the team for the final year of his contract this season, at a 2013 salary of $8.25-million.
The move also means the Packers won’t be asking Finley to take a pay cut for the upcoming season, something he earlier indicated he was not willing to do.
Finley set a franchise record for receptions by a tight end with 61 for 676 yards and 2 touchdowns. The touchdown total is low. In 2011, Finley caught 55 passes for 767 yards and 8 touchdowns.
