Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for July 15, 2014

Mike McGinnis

While one guy has returned from injury and has the inside track on a starting job, another is looking at a big payday if he can't play much early in the 2014 season.

This morning is chock-full of news about former Packer and free agent tight end Jermichael Finley. We learned last night that Finley was having more tests performed this week on his neck, and just a few minutes ago the first article in today's curds was published, presenting details of Finley's insurance policy.

But Finley's not the only Packer (or former Packer) who's in the news today. We've also got breakdowns of DuJuan Harris and JC Tretter, as well as some comments from a sure-fire Packers Hall of Famer who's playing out his career in Oakland.

Jermichael Finley eligible to make claim on $10 million insurance policy if he misses four games by Oct. 20 - Behind the Steel Curtain
According to SB Nation's Steelers blog, the details on Finley's insurance policy dictate that he can collect if he fails to suit up for four of the first seven games of the NFL season due to his injury. It sounds possible that Finley could collect that policy and still play in 12 games in 2014.

7. Has the revolving door at center finally stopped? - JSOnline
Between JC Tretter and Corey Linsley, there will likely be some growing pains at center, but hopefully those will pay off in the long run with one of the two locking down the position for several years to come.

Lovie Smith explains why he loves the 4-3 defense - Bucs Nation
It's an interesting dichotomy around the NFL - guys like Lovie Smith want their players to do one thing and do it really well, while others (think Dom Capers) want guys who can do a lot of things well so that it makes the defense less predictable.
