Daily Green Bay Packers news and links, today on Jermichael Finley, Tom Brady, Cullen Jenkins and the NFL Combine.
Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. As most of you now know, Cullen Jenkins has been released by the Philadelphia Eagles. Obviously, we'll be hearing more about this in the coming weeks, and he'll be linked heavily to the Packers. He's still a useful player, but the Packers have been proven right in their decision not to pay him what Philly did. Even after restructuring his contract following the first year of his deal, he became a cap casualty after his second. Still mad at Ted?
Cheese Curds also includes stories about Jermichael Finley, Tom Brady's contract and Manti Te'o's 40.
Give it a read and see what you think. I still don't think he presents value for money at his current salary, even though he is a useful player.
Hopefully no one riots if Clay doesn't get re-signed. But there's light at the end of the tunnel, because...
Maybe this is some precedent for Aaron Rodgers to take less than he's worth to help the team? Or for the Packers to give him a fully guaranteed contract if he takes less money? Obviously, it helps that Brady's wife makes two or three times more than he does, and I wouldn't begrudge Rodgers at all for holding out for every penny that he's worth.
If the Packers aren't already looking at Mike DeVito, maybe they should be.
All of these pictures/GIFs are amazing.
