Packers: Is a Jermichael Finley Return to Green Bay in the Works?

Just when you thought the excitement of the NFL offseason was over as we count down the days to the start of Green Bay Packers training camp, news pops up, like the information reported yesterday by Jason Wilde, that Jermichael Finley met with the Packers team doctor Pat McKenzie.

The visit with McKenzie took place yesterday, so we know that there is not a deal in place yet but a deal could be imminent, particularly if McKenzie was able to give Finley medical clearance. However, the meeting with Packers team doctor at least shows that the organization is interested in bringing him back once the medical hurdle is cleared, if it can be, Finley badly wants to return to Green Bay according to a phone interview Wilde did with Finley last week.

For the sake of competitive balance, the rest of the National Football League better hope that Finley is not healthy enough to return to the Packers because an offense with that includes Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy,Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin and Finley will be simply unstoppable.  Again, let’s not get ahead of ourselves at this point it’s just another step in the process but the fact that Finley is meeting with the McKenzie definitively shows that there is at least a chance that number 88 once again dons the green and gold.

re: Finley return — I’d expect if it were going to happen, with training camp opening, it would happen soon; like now.

Same with Johnny Jolly and maybe Ryan Pickett.

Yea its a different situation though. Finley could come back and start on the PUP, who knows. The only way Pickett and Jolly are coming back is if their is an injury to someone up front, other than that they will not be back. But yes if Finley is going to return he will need to get clearance soon.

Great strategy, Morgan — rush rush rush and watch Lacy, Starks, or Harris burst past the d-line rushers and into the second level. The west coast offense was designed to get rid of the ball quickly. With strong candidates to start and support at tight end and receiver spots, Rodgers will have lots of opportunities to take advantage of all that ill-considered pass rush. But hey, go for it.

Its easy to stop. Just rush the pourous/horrid O line and Rogers will be on his ass or running for his life like last year. Our north rivals have a plan, rush rush rush.

The Packers should have a pretty good online group this year with bulaga back this and they have two very goof guards and if Bahktiari can be better then he was even last year I think they will be fine.
