Packers Sign 5th Round Pick Quarless

The Packers have signed tight end Andrew Quarless.

According to a league source, the Packers have signed their 5th round pick in the 2010 draft, tight end Andrew Quarless.

From Brian McIntyre over on The Other 31:

Quarless’ four-year deal included a $182,425 signing bonus, and has a maximum value of $2.7 million dollars.

Quarless (6-4, 254) caught 87 passes for 1,146 yards and 8 touchdowns during an often tumultuous four-year career at Penn State.

Blessed with outstanding athleticism, the Packers think Quarless, who won’t turn 22 until October, could develop into solid tight end to complement Jermichael Finley. Quarless immediate contributions will likely be on special teams.

This means D Lee is a step closer to the door.

Disagree. Barring injuries or diminished skills I think the team goes w/ 4TE's including the Donald. W/ Finley's emergence they may go w/ 5 WR's freeing up a roster and they may cross train the TE's at FB to carry an extra OL.

No matter how you add Finley in the offense-WR or TE or slash both,we won't keep 3 more Te's.Lee is gone unless Quarless has a total breakdown.As for cross train a TE as FB,that I think would be Havners duty already.
If Finley is a WR then we are axing Swain ,but i wouldn't think that is the plan.
