Jermichael Finley says it's 50/50 he's back with Packers

National Football Post

Jermichael Finley figures it is 50/50 if he returns to the Green Bay Packers next season.

He is due to earn $8.25 million in 2013 and has a $3 million bonus due next month, so the Packers will have to make a decision on him in the near future.

Finley has stirred the pot in the locker room at times with comments about being on the same page as Aaron Rodgers, but it’s never gotten to the point where he’s become a distraction. Finley caught 61 passes for 667 yards and two touchdowns with the bulk of his production coming in the second half of the season.

"I would love to stay there," Finley told Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But if Green Bay says otherwise, I play football for a living, so I'd have to switch gears and get ready for another chapter in my life."

Finley is only 25 and the Packers don’t look to have a replacement for him on the roster. He is entering the final year of his contract. He hasn’t heard anything from the club lately but indicated his meeting with coach Mike McCarthy at the end of the season was positive.

"At the moment, there's no communication," Finley said. "Everything is shut down. That's a sign that everything is good at the moment. But if not, I'll be disappointed."
