When it comes to a professional athletes locker, that small vertical cube is their lifeblood to their organization. When a player does something to draw the ire of the franchise, the first thing they do (and they have no problem making it public) is remove the players nameplate off the locker.
It’s something we recently saw with the Jacksonville Jaguars and oft-troubled wide receiver Justin Blackmon.
But when a player doesn’t have his name removed from a locker, it sends just as strong a statement and that’s something the Green Bay Packers may be hoping will reach former tight end Jermichael Finley.
A free agent, Finley is coming off what many worried could be a career ending injury but the Pro Bowl talent says he’s ready to play again and the Packers haven’t seemingly shut the door on a possible return.
The Green Bay Packers have given away the lockers that formerly belonged to defensive linemen Johnny Jolly and Ryan Pickett, but another one of their unsigned free agents, tight end Jermichael Finley, still has his place in the team’s locker room at Lambeau Field.
It’s not known if the two sides will be able to find middle ground on a new deal, but it certainly seems as if the Packers would be more than open to a reunion.
