Finley responded with one of his better games of 2012: five catches for 61 yards. Maybe that was the idea.
"I think that's just media," Finley told ESPN's Josina Anderson in response to the report. "That's just talk out there. I haven't seen anything yet. They haven't shown me any signs. I'm here as far as I know."
McGinn is one of the very best in the business. His deeply reported story broke down the hows and whys regarding Finley's future from a lot of angles. It wasn't "just media," and we have no doubt McGinn is on the money.
Finley, who's due $7 million next season, knows he's playing the rest of this season to help his earning potential. He just hopes it's in Green Bay.
"It's a business, and I would love to be here my whole career," Finley said. "I'm comfortable here, and I want to be a Packer for life. That's all I can say about that."Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.
