Resign Finley and Quarless, and spend the whole draft on linebackers, safeties, and fat defensive lineman with actual heartbeats.

I don't want Finley for big money, and as was said, he almost certainly wouldn't come cheap. Quarless is much more of a "normal" TE - yeah, less of a route runner, but a better target, better hands (have people forgotten all those drops by Finley?), better blocker, and at least adequate speed. Between him, Taylor, Bostick, and maybe Stoneburner, we are pretty well covered at TE. And heaven knows, there are a LOT of other needs in the draft.

But also think they should draft another TE with upside.

Also I think Quarless is faster than Finley (track wise), but Quarless isn't natural route runner where it seems to come very natural to Finley and Finley naturally does a lot of the little things correct where Quarless didn't but he's getting better at them. Football wise Finley might be faster, but Quarless has the potential.

One play I have missed and kind of hope to make see Mike McCarthy surprise a team in the playoffs with is the TE screen. Quarless has looked good at it in the past, and since Mike McCarthy has not used it in a while it might surprise in lead to a big play. (of course screen to Cobb might be better).

They tried the TE screen against the Bears. It was the play Rodgers threw in the dirt because Peppers was all over it.

I agree on Quarless. He outperformed Finley in most combine tests. Finley was much more finished coming out of college. Quarless is beginning to play more naturally.

Quarless had been coming on, but then he shit himself last week. Then yesterday he played well again. Hope that trajectory continues.

He's better than Spencer Havner, but I haven't seen him get deep consistently like Finley.

We've got Stoneburner and Chris Hanson on this team yet too. They're complete unknowns at this time, Hanson just being an oversized wideout like David Martin.

I like Bostick's potential for the future. Sucks he's out for the year.
