Happy Tuesday late morning / early afternoon to all of you fine readers! Evan already started off our discussion about the biggest news of the day of the day here in Packer country (Jermichael Finley apparently getting his full salary this year and probably staying with the team). We’ll have more on this throughout the day, but here are a few other stories that may catch your attention as well including competition for Mason Crosby, Aaron Rodgers talking about a rival legend, and lots of love for the fans from the Green Bay Packers.

Packers eighth annual Tailgate Tour set for May 14-18; includes Iowa | Packers.com
Newsflash! The Packers still love their fans. There are two nice things about the Tailgate Tour: 1) it’s a nice way for the Packers to reach out to lifelong fans who may not have the opportunity to come to Green Bay for an event, and 2) the news that trickles out tends to help people ignore the fact that the Packers do absolutely nothing in free agency.
