So we all knew Green Bay wasn't going to be able to re-sign him and now it looks as if we wont have a chance either. Unless of course Getty decides TE #2 is worth spending good money on...

Olsen and Finley would be pretty dope however and probably would reduce for the need of a WR THIS year...

Ever had him on a fantasy team? I have picked him the past two years so I usually watch him when I watch the packers. He drops a lot of passes and is lazy on routes after being asked to stay in and block for a few plays in a row. I don't think te is a position that you want a diva.

You don't want a diva at TE, you want a hard nosed baller, who will take a blocking assignment when he needs to, if your not going to block might as well get a. WR

Don't blame him for not wanting to take a paycut.

I think another tight end would work great with our offense, but Finley is not the answer. Two tight end sets with a power run offense. A power offense with play action fakes with that vertical down field passing attack would offset the heightened need for a receiver. Hopefully Shula, Rivera and Gettleman have a plan to diversify our offense.

I would prefer Bennett from the Giants for less money and Patterson in the draft.

There's a reason he's called Droptimus Prime.

Do not want.

Do not want.

A great talent without the drive to maximize it.

I think barnidge will be good if he gets the opportunity. We gotta sign him back though. He reminds me of Olsen somewhat.

sorry do not want. Let some other team over-pay for him and have him as a bad contract in a few years

We need a TE2 that can actually block. That means no to Finley and Barnidge.
