Quarless recorded career highs in several categories this past season after missing the entire 2012 campaign due to a knee injury. He played in all 16 games in 2013 with 10 starts and caught 32 passes for 312 yards (9.8 avg.) and two TDs.

Selected by Green Bay in the fifth round (No. 154 overall) in 2010 out of Penn State, Quarless has appeared in 39 games with 15 starts during his career and has caught 56 passes for 586 yards (10.5 avg.) and three TDs.

This is indeed good news. Quarless was my second priority among our own after Shields.

Thanks God!!!! This is one of the key signings aside from Shields. I could not be happier about Andrew Quarless coming back. A great player for us, and this will help the continuity of our running game as well as receiving. Dyno!

Why does anyone like this guy?

He has not done jack shit to show he can be a good Te in this league.

In fairness, he's still not back to where he was when he tore the living hell out of his knee.

He's been a tease his whole career. If he can be consistently as good as he was for most of this past season, he'll be a solid player. If he can consistently be even better than that, so much the better.

Filled in nice as a Rookie to help win a SB. Is very good blocking which will help Lacy. Has been advancing in his receiving skills. He is knowledgeable in the offense. He is cheap.

And he is still only 25.

I don't understand what is not to like with Quarless. He does a steady, yeoman's job at TE, blocking and catching pretty well. He's not elite, but he is good, IMO.

He was showing a lot of upside late into the 2013 season. With the 99.9% chance Finley is going to another team (Seahawks) and Bostick/Stonebrunner being the only other options, why not get Quarless back so that the Packers don't have to blow away a 1st round pick on a tight end (when defense is in much higher demand?)

He's most likely going to be on the cheaper side of a contract, he's young and he is a proven blocker who has improved his route-running and catching. As of now, is the best possible option to the Packers.

Thing is if we don't sign him we need a TE. We either draft one or we sign a mid to lower tier one in FA and personally I didn't see any TEs in FA that I would rather have than Quarless.

Not only does this give a decent, no not great, TE it allows us to focus on other areas in the draft. He's young and probably not too expensive. Not that this is always good but he also showed a lot of promise so I think it was a good signing.

I think he will do an adequate job at the very least and he may surprise everyone. If not we can look to upgrade next year. That is not to say adequate is what we should strive for but when you have multiple needs sometimes adequate is all you can really hope for in 1 or 2 positions.

If we make it to the SB next year it won't be because Andrew Quarless is our TE. On the other hand we don't make it to the SB it will not be because Andrew Quarless is our TE.

His new deal is 2 years for $3 million. Don't see how anyone can even begin to complain about that.

That's getting a starting TE - I would say a quality starting TE - for the price of a backup. The thing I like about him is he is more of a "normal" TE - a target who can usually be relied on to catch it and then run and maybe break some tackles. Finley only got like that in his contract season, and I bet he reverts wherever he plays next season.

Not bothered by this signing in any way.

And, IMO, it means another one of those late draft choices will be available to help with other needs.

(trying to be a half-full guy for a bit) [grin1]

I like that deal for us. I would still like to see us bring in Owen Daniels if he's not asking for too much. I think that would round out a good solid tight end group.

I only know Quarless for 2 plays.

-the (should not have been / thank you refs) touchdown against the Vikings.

-tripping and botching the fake FG.

beyond that, I don't think I've ever seen him do anything some 6th rounder or UDFA couldn't for cheaper.

great blocker? how often is it our RB get stuffed on outside runs. better than Finley =/= great
