Packers tight end Jermichael Finley announces he is back with team

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley announced Monday on his Twitter page that he will be back with the team next season.

No official announcement has been made by the Packers but according to ESPN.com, Finley was due a $3 million roster bonus by 4:00 p.m. today, and will make $8.25 million this season. He is in the last year of a two-year, $14 million contract signed last offseason.

The team had a decision to make after losing Greg Jennings and Tom Crabtree to free agency. Finley said earlier this month that he would rather be released than take a pay cut from the team.

Finley, 25, caught 61 passes for 667 yards and two touchdowns last season for the Packers.
