With a lot of uncertainty at the tight end position, the Packers appear to be working on a way to keep Andrew Quarless on the team.
Per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,
"Quarless' representative spoke with negotiator Russ Ball at the scouting combine and the two have been in regular contact, How deep their discussions have gone isn't known and it's possible Quarless will hit the open market."
Quarless took over the starting tight end role after Jermichael Finley's season was cut short due to a neck injury.
"Though Brandon Bostick emerged as a receiving threat before being lost for the season with a broken foot, Quarless was the preferred option and finished the season having played 61.8% of the regular season snaps."
The Packers are keeping their options open, though.
"The Packers are expected to take a look at a number of the tight ends who are on the free agent market knowing there's no sure thing with either Finley or Quarless. Among those who will be available are Houston's Garrett Graham, Detroit's Brandon Pettigrew, Buffalo's Scott Chandler and the New York Jets' Jeff Cumberland."
