Andrew Brandt tweeted the other day that Green Bay is in active negotiations and they hope to get a deal done with Finley before Free Agency begins, but if they can't, they're using the Franchise Tag on him.

So unless something really bad happens to Finley between now and then, that seems to be the answer.

I won't pretend I know the precise amounts of mumbo-jumbo the league tosses into that particular cauldron, to be honest. I believe playing time and contract are the big factors. But, is it playing time from previous seasons, or playing time in the year they're signed by a new team? If it's $$$ and PT for the new team, then it's safe to assume the Pack will get a 3rd, as some team will pay him fairly well and hand him the keys. That's what I assume is going to happen, and the resason I assume they'll get a 3rd.

However, I think there's something in that mumbo-jumbo that factors "quality of players lost vs. quality of players acquired" as well. That isn't likely to matter, though, since TT doesn't go wild in FA.

Cassel had a full season of play, showed marked improvement from game 1 to game 16, and had a solid winning percentage. He was worth a second and even that took the addition of an aging but studly OLB thrown in.

Anybody who thinks the Pack will tag Flynn has a screw loose.
Keep in mind that there was talk about Flynn as a potential franchise quarterback for a team before he even started against New England last season. Holmgren reportedly inquired about trading for him prior to this season, but Green Bay wanted to keep a good backup option in place. While he certainly has a small sample size, his performance against Detroit isn't the only reason teams are interested in Flynn. I think there is a strong market for Flynn considering the number of teams that could use a quarterback and may not feel confident about getting one in the first round.

That said, I don't think Flynn ultimately gets tagged.

Tag Flynn cuz that would be stupid and I hate the Packers and wanna see them do something stupid. That being said the Packers don't do anything stupid. I hate the Packers for getting rid of my boy Brett. And unfortunately, that wasn't stupid either. So the reason I hate them was even smart. So they'll tag Finley.
