B.J. Finney struggled to train for 2020 season with Seahawks
When offending lineman B.J. Finney was with the Seattle Seahawks last offseason, he had a hard time to train for the 2020 season since of his issue over losing on a $2 million finalizing benefit due to the constraints the NFL put on gamer physicals.
These constraints were, obviously, set in movement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Finney went into training school overweight and out of shape.
“It put a player like him in a bad situation — he literally couldn’t work out to get in shape, and he was in a funk all year because of it,” a source associated with Finney informed ESPN. “This is the one time you can set yourself up for life, and if you tweak your back or do anything, you’re in jeopardy of losing your contract.”
Finney signed a two-year agreement with the Seahawks however never ever played a down for them, as they traded him along with a 2021 seventh-round choice to the Cincinnati Bengals for Carlos Dunlap.
