There’s a good chance that there will be new faces in Green Bay at the tight end position by the time training camp rolls around.

Andrew Quarless will more than likely be kept around to have some veteran presence on the team while Richard Rodgers continues to progress.
If the Packers draft a tight end, Justin Perillo probably lands back on the practice squad and Brandon Bostick’s chances of making the team go down considerably.
The Packers are loaded with talent at the wide receiver position and may look to keep five receivers on the active roster. If that happens the Packers will end up ditching the fourth tight end.
I don’t think the Packers are ready to clean house just yet with their tight ends, but if there’s another season comparable to the last two, they may consider it.
