Finley might argue tag should be WR, not TE

Nov. 6, 2013

According to a report on ProFootballTalk.com, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley might argue that he's a receiver, not a tight end, if the Packers put the franchise tag on him in the offseason. The report, which cited an unnamed source, said Finley would base the argument on the number of plays in which he lines up wide or in the slot, rather than in-line like a more traditional tight end. The point is meaningful, because if the Packers tag Finley, the tender for a tight end is projected to be about $5.5 million, whereas the tender for a receiver will be about $9.5 million.
