Packers' Jermichael Finley: Ponder will be 'great' next year


The Green Bay Packers really seem to enjoy coming to Minnesota.

Ryan Longwell, Darren Sharper, Brett Favre and Greg Jennings have all signed with the Vikings after playing the majority of their careers at Lambeau Field.

On Wednesday, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was in Minnesota -- not to sign a deal -- but to join Vikings play-by-play guy Paul Allen on KFAN-FM 100.3. Finley, actually, had a lot of nice things to say about the Vikings.

He said Jennings is a "playmaker" that will immediately help quarterback Christian Ponder "become a great quarterback next year." He went as far as to say the Vikings offense is "really loaded."
