Hey, have you noticed? Former Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley never signed with anyone.
Finley is coming off spinal fusion surgery — the result of a neck injury he suffered about a year ago. So it’s not entirely surprising that Finley is without a team.
He’s still going to cash in though.
Finley will be filing a claim on a $10 million insurance policy. How does that work? Apparently, if he doesn’t play in four games this season, which has already been the case, then he can collect.
That seems like a pretty stupid insurance policy, but whatever. We’re sure that insurance company can just find ways to gouge us regular folk some more in order to pay for Finley’s $10 million for doing nothing.
Maybe he can get on disability too. Get himself a nice doublewide down by the river and maybe a new pickup to boot!
It’s all FREE MONEY!
While he’s at it, maybe Finley could burn that doublewide down with his wife inside, make it look like an accident, and collect THAT INSURANCE MONEY TOO!
Oh, supposedly Finley still wants to play in the league. He’s still working out in hopes that someone will give him a shot. Well, someone who wants to throw a bunch of money at him anyway.
The Pittsburgh Steelers supposedly offered Finley a contract over the summer, but that wasn’t lucrative enough for his liking. Just because nobody wants you, doesn’t mean you have to be low-balled!
“Pittsburgh have showed me a couple deals, but we all know the money ain’t what it’s supposed to be,” Finley said. “If I quit the game right now, I can take tax-free money, and that’s a difficult thing that I’m going through with myself …”
Have we mentioned that this isn’t about the money?
It’s FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME!
