TE Andrew Quarless
One of the biggest deficiencies for the Packers’ offense in 2015 was at tight end. Andrew Quarless sat out of 11 games, and Richard Rodgers failed to make the second-year jump everyone had hoped for.
The Packers won’t be giving up on Rodgers anytime soon. Entering his third season, he can still offer enough in the receiving game. Rodgers is a better option than Quarless, who could be on his way out of Packers News.
This offseason, the Packers need to find a tight end who can create mismatches in the passing game. Hunter Henry out of Arkansas could be the man to do just that, should he be available at No. 27 in the upcoming draft.
Since Jermichael Finley was forced into early retirement with a neck injury, the Packers have had a glaring weakness at tight end, and it’s time to reboot at the position. This begins by letting Quarless walk in free agency.
Q is a good player. He chipped in with three touchdowns in 2014, including a game-winner with three seconds remaining in Miami. But the 323 receiving yards he tallied that season is a career-high, and the Packers need a lot more production from their tight ends.
