TE Andrew Quarless
It’s time to restart at the tight end position. Richard Rodgers isn’t going anywhere, but finding a young talent to compete with him for the starting job is important. That would likely spell the end of the road for Andrew Quarless.
Quarless couldn’t stay healthy in 2015, and he’s never been able to produce big numbers for the Packers. In his five seasons with Green Bay, Quarless has caught 89 passes for 940 yards and six touchdowns.
Coach McCarthy loves to feature tight ends in the Packers’ offense, but hasn’t had the personnel to do so since Jermichael Finley suffered a career-ending neck injury in 2013. Quarless has made some big plays along the way—such as his late game-winner in Miami in 2014—but consistency has never been there.
With a number of other priorities, it’s going to be hard to pay Quarless to come back. And in all honesty, he hasn’t done enough to warrant a new deal. Replacing the 27-year-old in the draft will be one of the Packers’ biggest challenges this offseason, should they decide to move on from Q.
Changes are required at the tight end position.
