American Football - Finley will stay with the Packers

Tight end Jermichael Finley will remain with the Green Bay Packers despite being unwilling to restructure his contract, and the Oakland Raiders may face a similar decision with quarterback Carson Palmer if he does not restructure his deal.

Finley won't have to take a pay cut or restructure his contract. The deadline for making a roster decision on Finley was Monday. The Packers will pay Finley his roster bonus, which is due on Tuesday. He will also receive his base salary for 2013.

Meanwhile, Palmer seems unwilling to restructure his contract with the Raiders, ESPN reported.

Reports lately have suggested Palmer and the Raiders would work out a deal, but that may not be the case.

If Palmer and the Raiders cannot reach agreement on a restructured deal that is more cap-friendly, the Raiders would have to decide whether to keep him under the present terms of the contract or release him.
