    Here's the report:

    Finley claims he got offers and turned them down. Perhaps they were not lucrative enough (as in a no guarantee minimum that might turn into merely OTA per diems) to forfeit the $10 mil disability claim. Hard to begrudge that calculation.

    All the yapping and twitter crap notwithstanding, I must say I miss seeing him on the field. Dynamic potential only partially realized. I hope he's found a pursuit he enjoys.

    Very graceful tweets from Finley. I wish him all the best.

    A no brainer here for Jermichael, a pile of cash big enough to retire on or give it back and risk a life altering injury.

    Nothing against Richard Rodgers and the guys behind him, but Finley is just the TE we are missing from the offensive arsenal at the moment.
