If the Packers could sign Jermichael Finley to an incentive based contract, I'd be all for Finley's return. However, Finley wants to cash in and I believe someone will pay him, IF he is medically cleared.

Imagine everything Andrew Quarless has been through. A gruesome leg injury that robbed him of the entire 2012 season.


He's trying to replace Finley as the starting TE and I think most would agree he's a better run blocker than Finley although he doesn't have as sure of hands as Finley nor the speed.

Quarless has really came on strong the last six games of the season with drive extending catches.

For the season, Quarless has 24 of his 32 receptions and his only 2 TD's when the Packers were trailing. 3 when winning, 5 when tied. That says the Packers trust him to help them move the chains.

Packers will be fine at TE with Quarless and Brandon Bostick in 2014.

With the reemergence of a real running game and depth at WR I am ok with a TE who is more proficient at blocking.

I know this thread is about Quarless, but beside the final touchdown to Cobb, that threading the needle pass to Quarless was probably the most impressive play I have seen Aaron Rodger's make in his career so far.

Quarless is starting to look better. They are using him more vertically rather than the 5 yard peelouts. He seems to have gotten the confidence in his legs again. And he is catching the ball. I think he got screwed in that catch reversal.

I am comfortable without Finley going forward.

We are a better team with Quarless at TE than we were with Finley. Quarless is not a prima dona. He simply works hard and gets the job done. I also think he has as good of hands as Finley. Maybe better. Andrew Quarless is more of a "team" player than a "me" player.

I'll take Quarless any day.

There is no way Finley is taking a team friendly contract. Some times you have to let a guy go. I'm fine with Quarless and Bostick next year. But I really hate thinking about Finley tearing up the league in another uniform.

I guess I'm the only one who didn't mind Finley's outspokenness. Pity we never got to see the total package out of him.

I got so I could tolerate it. When he was a rookie and sitting on the bench I found it necessary. By the end of his contract I just shrugged.

While I agree that we will be fine as an offense with Quarless and Bostick, I hate to think about the day that Finley comes back to play against Green Bay. Our defense struggles covering good tight ends over the middle, and Finley is a big, fast, athletic TE that would hurt us. He's really one of my favorite players because of his passion for the game. This is a tough situation to be in, and I trust whatever Ted Thompson decides to do.
