For the first time in years, the Green Bay Packers could mine free agency for starters. Multiple starters. And at tight end, Thompson may chart a new direction.


Seems like this years TE class is like last years RBs: lots of late 1st round and early 2nd round grades. Wouldn't be surprised if we scoop up one in the 2nd round similar to how they nabbed Lacy last year.

I don't think so.

If some real quality is still there in the late 3rd or 4th, maybe, but what we have now is decent enough at TE (assuming we re-sign Quarless - which we certainly should). The same cannot be said for Safety or ILB or OLB. I would also put O-Line at a higher priority than TE.

If Ted does at TE what he did last year at RB, we're golden.

Yeah we got bodies, but what have any of them contributed? Bostick is a converted WR who can't block well, Stoneburner is a complete unknown on offense, Taylor is a ST guy and Quarless, while showing some promise last year, hasn't done anything over a full 16 game season.

If they picked a TE with one of their first 4 picks with the other 3 being D I wouldn't complain.

Quarless was a major component in our last Super Bowl victory. He was looking pretty good at the end of last season. I think he has gotten more confidence in his rehabbed knee. I really want to see him resigned and then maybe add another later round pick. We have a lot more pressing needs than TE.

I like Quarless a lot and think he is one of a handful of players we should re-sign. He was targeted only 54 times last season but had 32 receptions, 18 for 1st downs. He is reliable, and a great blocker. That latter component makes him more valuable to me.

Agree, Even if Ted drafts a TE, which I believe he will, whether it be round 1 or round 7, I'm guessing he will use the pick he gets for Jennings(rnd 4 ?) to grab a TE, whoever it is, is still going to be a ROOKIE, which means of course he will need time to develop.

Quarless, Bostic, Taylor, Stoneburner, new guy(can't remember name), draft pick.

That's 6 only 5, maybe 4 will make the final 53, gonna need Quarless and Taylor for some experience.
Hopefully Bostic improves enough to make a difference, still thibk Stoneburner is another year away.

I wish he wouldn't, but good chance you are right.
