Robbing Peter to Pay Paul: Greg Jennings holds Jermichael Finley’s fate with Packers

According to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, it only makes sense that one has to go, and if the Packers choose receiver Greg Jennings, then tight end Jermichael Finley has to go.

Finley could restructure his contract, but until that actually happens, it’s a numbers game. The Packer are strapped by the cap and reportedly torn on both players.

However, GM Ted Thompson could tag Jennings and look for a sign and trade, but it’s a risky move if he can’t find any suitors. After declining production, Jennings, who is looking for $14 million a year, could create a problem in a sign and trade scenario.

Finley hasn’t made many friends with his outspoken tirades against Aaron Rodgers and management, but the fact the Packers have three receivers in Jordy Nelson, James Jones, and Randall Cobb could grease the slide for Jennings and be the glue that makes Finley stick.
