Packers TE Jermichael Finley Shrugs Off Competition From D.J. Williams
Backup tight end D.J. Williams is making a case to have a bigger role in the offense.
Williams enjoyed an excellent training camp, meaning he could see more playing time, despite the presence of starter Jermichael Finley. While Finley had 55 catches for 767 yards and eight touchdowns last season, he also had 13 drops.
Finley sounds highly motivated to remain one of Rodgersí favorite targets.
"Not taking nothing away from D.J., but camp is camp," Finley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "San Francisco (the Packersí Week 1 opponent) has a great defense. It ainít going to be nothing like camp, I guarantee you."
With Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Finley and others, Rodgers has a multitude of options when he drops back to pass but Finley doesn't see his role diminishing in the Packersí attack.
"You produce and get the timing and chemistry down, you get the ball," Finley said. "Itís not all the weapons we have or how many guys we have, itís about whoís producing at the time. At the end of the day, itís on me."
