The Green Bay Packers' tight end position goes into the 2013 off-season much the way it did in 2012: with a number of question marks and several players who make the fans and coaches want more from them. However, it looks at this point like little will change at that position, with four of the five players remaining signed for next year. There's loads of athletic ability all over the place, but injuries and inconsistency have kept the players at this position from tapping into their full potential, which leads many to think that one tight end in particular will be released before the season starts.

Signed for 2013:

Jermichael Finley
Andrew Quarless
D.J. Williams
Ryan Taylor

I'm not one who thinks that Finley is going to be released before the start of the season. Realistically, he showed enough down the stretch in 2013 that he's worth one final test here in 2013. If at that point the Packers don't feel like he's worth the money that he'll demand in free agency, then they can let him walk, but with Greg Jennings likely departing the team will need Finley's presence to help bust Cover-2 defenses.
