The Green Bay Packers have resigned tight end, Jermichael Finley to a two-year $15 million dollar contract. Finley initially broke the news via Twitter when he wrote “I could not be happier to have the privilege of being a Packer for the next 2 years.” Jermichael had an injured plagued 2010 that kept him out of the Packers’ Superbowl win, but the 24 year-old TE bounced back in 2011 playing all 16 games of the season while contributing 55 receptions for 767 yards and 8 touchdowns in the high octane Green Bay offense. When you have Aaron Rodgers throwing to you, I guess it’s hard not to be happy.
A year ago this week, Jeremy Kapinos walked off the plane in Green Bay to snowy, cold conditions.
The punter kicked in four games for the Green Bay Packers last season and other than his second game in Jacksonville, Fla., the temperatures at kickoff were 3, 2 and 22 degrees.
Welcome to the NFL, cold-weather style.
With five games left in the regular season, the weather is about to turn cold, and whether the Packers, 7-4 and in the hunt for an NFC wild-card playoff berth, make the postseason could depend largely on how Kapinos, kicker Mason Crosby and the rest of their maligned special teams units perform in adverse conditions.
If it’s at all similar to how they’ve performed in relatively benign conditions so far this season, the Packers might have reason for concern. Kapinos has ranked near the bottom of the NFL punting stats. Crosby has been shaky on long field goals — and even missed a 43-yarder indoors at Detroit on Thursday.
