Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is the poster boy for untapped talent.

Blessed with unique size and skills, Finley possesses the ability to become one of the premier (if not the premier) tight end’s in the NFL. But unfortunately for Finley and the Packers, the former University of Texas product hasn’t been able to put together the entire package.

Both Finley and the Packers are hopeful this season will be the year Finley takes the next step, something he’s already doing in training camp according to the team:

Now, in a contract year, Finley is toning it down. Wednesday might be a sign of what’s to come.

“He’s not in the media every day, that’s a good thing,” said McCarthy, smiling. “That was a joke. But Jermichael loves football. He pours a lot into it. His off-season training outside the building is top-notch as far as the time he spends in Arizona and over there in Minneapolis.

“He’s where he needs to be, he’s in a very good place. I think he’s having a heck of a camp.”

    Of course it will be, it is a contract year and he wants to get paid. Then he will resort to his same old poor play.
