Are you wondering why you haven't seen any news about Jermichael Finley this offseason? Great! Because we have an article on him in today's Cheese Curds! Are you bummed out that he hasn't been stirring up controversy? Well, then you might be a little disappointed.

In any case, here is today's roundup of Packers news from around the web. Finley and fellow tight end Matthew Mulligan get some attention today, as does the battle for the starting right tackle spot. And of course, curds a la Tex wouldn't be complete without an NFL player (in this case former player) making himself look like a whackjob. Eat up!
