Finley, who didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, finished his 2020 season completing 17 of 32 passes for 164 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also ran 11 times for 66 yards and one touchdown over five games.
Finley was inconsistent when pressed into duty during what was his second NFL season. After starter Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury Week 11, Finley and Brandon Allen were the last men standing at the position. While it subsequently became clear that Allen was the productive of the two, Finley did lead an upset of the Steelers in a Week 15 spot start. Finley is signed throughout the 2022 season, while Allen is entering the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
