In the way that only he can, former Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley tells USA Today's Tom Pelissero that the Pittsburgh Steelers have made him a contract offer:
Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain't what it's supposed to be. If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that's a difficult thing that I'm going through with myself …
Reading the entire article, it certainly sounds like Finley is content to wait for a possible training camp injury somewhere around the league so that he can have a bit more leverage with teams.
If Finley doesn't end up finding a team willing to pay him what he feels he's worth, the veteran tight end seems to be content with the idea of cashing in on his $10 million insurance policy and walking away from the game.
