He isn’t under contract.

The Packers can’t afford to franchise tag him. The only way they could do it is if they KNEW another team was going to trade for him. However, if you were another team, why would you contact the Packers about a trade for a player not even under contract? It would be idiotic.

If you are another team’s GM, then you know the Packers will either let Flynn go, whereupon you would get him for nothing. OR, the Packers will franchise him, whereupon his value drops because you know the Packers HAVE to trade him.

The Packers will be compensated for Flynn’s departure. They get a draft pick in the first 4 rounds regardless. That isn’t nothing.

Letting him go for nothing is disappointing.

If you negotiate for Finley as a WR, then his numbers are worthy of a James Jones’ like contract. We’ll gladly take him for $2.3 million a year if that is what he wants.

I agree that Wells is the only necessity. However, unless they have a plan to spend that money elsewhere, the Packers have enough cap room to tag Finley. You pay him $5 million next year. If he ends up worth it, you extend him. If not, you move on.
